The trail follows a campground road as the campground is closed for renovation. Because of this, the first kilometer is equal parts boring and easy. The fun begins when the trail crosses Hoodoo Creek on a new sturdy foot bridge. The trail is a steady climb through forest with many overlooks that offer views of the canyon carved by Hoodoo Creek, distant meadows, lakes, and mountains. Near the end, the trail forks. The fork to the right leads to the river and views of the hoodoos from below. The fork to the right ascends further and gives close-up views of the hoodoos at eye level and below. Both forks are quite short - taking both is recommended.

All uphill from campground but worth it. Agree both upper and lower views are a must. Lower gives full show ala stream. Also appreciated start of next gen hoodoos on opposite ridge on way down. Even without view of clouded high peaks, all in!

I hiked many trails in Glacier, Yoho, and Kootenay National Parks. The beauty and solitude of this trail made it my favorite.

While there were a few trees across the trail, they did not detract from the hike.
