The Hoodoos are a group of stone columns with caprocks situated on approximately 11 hectares of land between Drumheller and East Coulee. Ranging in height from roughly one to three meters, the group of approximately 10 Hoodoos feature white sandstone caprocks overlying dark brown marine shale bodies.

The area around the hoodoos itself is short. However we use this as a starting point for hiking through the foothills in the area. This is my children’s favourite place and we have been across Canada. Just be warned to watch for deep crevasses if you do go off to make your own trail and for cacti. I had my youngest get a million “prickles” in his hand a few years back that he had to pull out one by one. Great opportunity to let your children feel like they are out in the wild ❤️

The main part is not really even a walk, but there is a great short steep walk up the hill.

Small walking trail around the HooDoos. You can hike up the hillside for some great views though it's not part of the official trail. Be warned the mountain is steep near the top and requires a bit of scrambling.
