This is not a long hike. A little rough in places, but not bad. I was expecting to see more toadstools as we hiked, but really only saw a couple as we got to the end of the trail.

It was easy to miss the parking lot with the only sign there. We had to turn around and glad we did. Great return for the short hike.

If you are looking for that perfect hike with few people and an other-worldly experience this is it! The toadstool are cool to see and not to hard to get to - just watch your time of day as it can get toasty!

This a short hike (and not too difficult) from Hwy. 89 about 45 miles from Kanab, Utah. There is a well marked trail that is easy to follow. Hint: The trail does go up and down a bit but if you take the wash, it...More
