A quick and easy hike which is worth doing if you have the time. The trail isn't clearly marked at all so be sure to keep you're eyes peeled so you don't get lost or confused. We did this trail in early feb at around 4pm and were pleasantly surprised that it was only us and another couple there. Very... More

A wonderful short hike to an amazing landscape of unique rock features you can touch and view. I recommend for any family with younger children or those who only wnat a short hike.

Great stop for a quick walk to get out of the car. We went right after a good rain and the ground was still soft around the Toadstools. The walk in is easy and fallows a wash (it was not running). The toadstools are very cool. The columns are made of soft rock and must topple often. Head around to... More

This is an amazingly quick and easy hike that you really shouldn't miss if you're ever in the area. The sign is super small and we had to make a u-turn to get back into the parking lot after passing it entirely. The hike itself is really short and easy and when you get to the toadstools you'll feel like... More

1.6 miles round trip hike - we were the only ones at dusk and got to see a beautiful sunset in the mountains. The formations are interesting, not too many, but it is worth it.

In planning for a month-long roadtrip to the canyon areas of utah, I looked far and wide for unique experiences from different sources to include on our itinerary. When I came upon information on these "Toadstool Hoodoos", I thought we'd check them out. They were in fact amazing! We stopped in late afternoon in mid August thinking we'd catch the... More

Close to highway 89, easy walk, not to miss. I've travelled extensively and my favorite State is Utah. This area is one of the many that is a privilege to experience.

We had bad weather in Page and so our booked for-wheel-tour to White Pocket was cancelled. There was no rain in the afternoon and we decided to visit the Hoodos. The parking area is beside the Highway west of Big Water. The way was a little bit muddy, but this wasn’t a big problem. We reached the Hoodos and were... More

The walk to the toadstools is about one mile and is relatively easy. There are signs marking the way but you think, how much longer. Be sure to take water as even in October it was warm and dry. Seeing the Hoodos for the first time is amazing, even geologists think the rock are really cool. This is a fantasy... More

Step out of your car, walk along Wahweap Creek four miles or so, watch for the other-worldly toadstools in several families, niched in the snow-white flow-stone of the west wall.
