Take your time to explore this very interesting area. The hike from the parking area is quite short and easy. If you feel you've seen everything based on the initial grouping of red hoodoos, you're in for a surprise. Continue both to the right and...More

Trail was a bit more up and down, especially at the end, than we expected. It was almost easier to walk in the creek bed than the trail in most spots. Once we got to the top, it was terrific. You could spend a few...More

This is just a short nature walk, about 2 miles round trip, that goes to an area that has a few rock hoodoos, called "toad stools". The erosional features of the geologic formations are interesting. There are not many toadstools but it's a nice walk....More

Small parking lot off 89a you can enter part of the grand staircase area. Short 3/4 mile each way to toadstools.

Short, easy hike. Takes you out to toadstools, that honestly looks like you're on another planet. Lots of room to roam once at the end. Great for families.

We really loved this hike as a contrast to our time in Arizona. Very different features, and very easy for the kids. Beautiful!

This was an easy walk/hike to get to but at the end, the scenery was just ok. This might be influenced by the fact that we had been previously hiking in Coyote Buttes North, South, Side Step Canyon and buckskin gulch so very little can...More
