This is a very nice hike up to the hoodoos and back. It is a fairly steep path, so it gets the blood flowing, but should be accessible to all ages. This would be slippery after a rain so I would recommend going on a...More

We came last year and loved it. So came with more family this year. Not too strenuous with young children. Hard to push a stroller.

Close to town and an easy hike on a well established trail. Great vies from atop the Hoodoos of the Columbia river valley.

The trail starts out steep with out many views. About 30 minutes up there are great views of the river lake and mountains beyond. As for the hoodoos you are on top of them.

Walk was great for beginning hikers. Not much scenery. Expected to be more in front of the hoodoos rather than just on top.

As of 2017, there are new interpretive panels describing the wildlife and geology of the area. NCC also installed guard rails and directional signage for the trail due to off trail erosion and plant trampling of sensitive sites.

Yes I think they would do ok on this but I recommend holding on to them at the top because there is no safety railing or nets to catch someone if they fall. Also note that we didn't really see any wildlife(birds,squirrels... More

Head south from Fairmont on HWY 93/95 about 1.5 miles. Turn right onto Westside Road and watch for sign and parking lot on left
