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.

I would 100% recommend this for a late night walk. It’s so beautiful and the sunset was stunning so many amazing trails and different views. Could go forever. Kinda steep at some spots but can stay low. Loved it a lot.

A very nice walk, the only strenuous part would be some stairs. We went around 8am and had it all to ourselves. It's a beautiful place filled with history. We also went in conjunction with the Royal Tyrell Museum and the Star Mine Suspension Bridge. Such a good trip.

Not a hike that your going to break a sweat on, but a good outing to learn about how hoodoos are formed and about the previous mine site and town. You will get some great pics of the hoodoos! We did this outing in conjunction with a visit to the old suspension bridge/Star mine site in Rosedale, a visit to the Royal Tyrell Museum and an out and back ride on the Dinosaur trail to Drumheller from the Museum. I would recommended staying over night and spending more time to tour downtown, visiting the antique museum and fossil discovery centre and also hike into Horseshoe and Horse Thief Canyons. An area very rich in history and spectacular scenery.

Wear good shoes for steep but fun climb up. There is an easy trail to take down to the left that has less traffic. At the bottom there is interesting boulders to look at.

I went to the hoodoos and then here, and this was much better. Not a lot of people come here but there is still lots to see! The hike goes down a pretty steep hill though that you have to climb again, so prepare for that. This was a gorgeous area with Los of hills to climb.

Went on August 2nd, 2019, and it was a hot 33 degrees outside. There is no shade and it was very busy with lots of kids. Trail states it’s dog friendly but without shade or water near by we could only stay for about 15 minutes. If planning on climbing I suggest at least running shoes. There is also a $2 parking fee which I’m not entirely sure why. Honestly not worth the detour in my opinion.

Lake Louise campground to the lake. More than half is uphill. Some areas steep. Be well prepared.

Worth the stop. $2 parking. Very hot today. Portapotties in the parking lot as well as an ice cream truck. Hike up the hills is worth the view but can be quite steep and slippery in multiple locations. On the way down you mostly slide down on your butt and the rocks can be sharp. I was stressed going down and a guy in birkenstocks passed me with ease... So level of difficulty is in the eyes of the beholder. lol

Cool spot, loads of people and can’t access the hoodoos as they are protected. Fun climbing around the trail.

It's not really hike, climbing to the top is worth it. The light close to the sunset is amazing there, it wasn't too crowded. The geological formations are incredible!
