Love this trail so much!! It was an unexpected hike when we drove from Page to Kanab. The hoodoos were so lovely! Make sure to hike in two different directions so that you can see hoodoos in both white and red! Also there is an amazing view point of the valley and the different layers of the rocks when you walk to the left when you reach the end of the main trail!

Worth the trip. Once you get to the end of trail plan to spend some time wondering around. This would be a great spot for night sky photography with the toadstools in the foreground.

Easy hike especially on a cool fall day. Toadstool hoodoos are an a amazing sight. You get very close to them and you feel like you are on another planet. saw a lot of families with young kids. Also saw several dogs on the trail.

This is a heavily advertised, short hike right off of Hwy 89, so you are going to have lots of company. It's a short hike to some interesting stuff. You can wander around quite a bit in various directions, which I am sure is an ecological disaster, but that ship has sailed, so to speak. The hoodoos at Wahweap are more interesting, but you have to walk 4.5 miles to get to those, so this is a lot more accessible.

The views and surrounding areas of the toadstools was well worth the hike.

The toadstool hoodoos are unreal. If you travel along highway 89 and pass by the place with an hour to spare, try to go to see this nature wonder. I went there in early PM in mid October. It was not hot, rather it was a bit cold.

Fun short trail, definitely go in the early day to avoid the heat since it’s all in the sun

What a great hike!!! Not hard at all, but if you are not used to elevation it can sometimes get hard to breathe.

We started this hike at 6.30pm mid July and it was perfect. Most of the trail was already shaded from
the sun, which made the tour fairly easy. You should still bring plenty of water tho! It was a very easy hike, beautiful scenery and when we arrived at the Toadstools, it looked like on Mars. Would definitely recommend this hike in the later afternoon in summer.

I did this trial in early July while my dad and son slept in the car. It was pretty easy, but make sure you have a lot of water. Its well worth the short hike to see the toadstools.

Great hike, which we did as a family of 5 in sneakers and Keen sandals without much struggle. Beautiful scenery!! Perfect place to take photos. It was 104 degrees in 3rd week of June when we did it, take LOTS of water and know your heat limits. We stayed an hour before heading back and could feel the heat taking its toll by the time we got back to the car. The hike is easiest following the dry wash and more scenic following the path (not well marked). Parking is right off the busy road so be mindful about bringing belongings and leaving in the car. No bathrooms or rest areas. Definately worth the hike!

Did this cool hike on our way from Zion to Page, AZ. Well worth the stop, you truly feel like you’re on Mars or something. Trail markers are scarce but pretty much follow the creek wash until you get to the top. Great spot to see hoodoos.

Easy hike. Beautiful area for pictures at toadstools. Saw to many people with no hats carrying no water on trail. First week of June 100 degrees. Be prepared

definitely worth the time. Very easy hike that ends in what almost looks like another planet. The toadstools were fun to find. We were suggested this hike by our Airbnb host. We were glad we hiked it.

Very different scenery here. Fairly easy trail, except for one short portion that I didn't like as I do not like narrow paths near drop offs of any kind. Other than that, it was easy. Looks like you are on another planet.

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 hours exploring all over, not just the toadstools. Oh, we are 71 and 68 years old too.

Awesome!! A little bit more difficult than we were expecting but 100% worth it! We did this to break up a long day of driving from Santa Fe to Zion. Also it’s fun to say hoodoo.

Short and sweet trail! We didn’t do the whole trail just to the first toad stool. If you walk fast takes about 30ish minutes there and back. Very interesting view. Almost seems like it should be on another planet.

Great stop on our way to Zion. The Hoodoos were fun to see as were the rest of the rock formations. Cold and windy today but well worth the hike.
