This place is amazing. We felt like we were dropped from a rocket onto another planet among the ruins of Giants. It’s a short hike from the parking lot to the main area and there’s lots of people there but the place is so massive , it doesn’t feel crowded, and if you scramble over some rocks, you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself.

I am so glad we decided to stop here and see the Toadstool Hoodoos on our way from Zion to Page. This place is incredible. It felt like we were on another planet. We saw 2 or 3 people over the course of an hour. The hike in is less than a mile and mostly flat. It is well worth the stop to see what Mother Nature has created and continues to evolve through wind and rain,

I recommend not going mid-day in the summer. There is no shade anywhere and the trail is ill-marked. We somehow got off trail a number of times. The trail itself (if you can stay on it) is easy and relatively flat for kids to make it on their own. The formations are fun for some pictures but not much else than turn around. Overall a nice place to walk and be able to see something, just not in the heat of the summer.

A short hike (~1 mile) will get you to the first of the toadstools, where most people will stop. (worth the trip, but there's much more if you keep going). Follow the trail around to the left of the hoodoos, where you will gain a view into a huge valley and also another toadstool "garden" of white rock hoodoos. Fewer tourists for this extra distance.

Our family enjoyed this hike and the interesting rock formations. In addition to beautiful views, it's cool to see first-hand what erosion can do. Our kids are 15 and 18 - the trail was clear with no steep drops so that I was very comfortable with them exploring ahead on their own, and they certainly found side areas to scramble around on.

In addition to water, I'd highly recommend gatorade to make sure you're replacing electrolytes. Lots and lots of direct sun on this trail - and we even started a little later in the day. I would think twice about bringing pets or smaller children.

Check the signs before you start - part of the trail in May 2022 was washed out causing a detour on a steeper, more difficult path. Still fine for average fitness levels, but not the gradual sand slopes that we were expecting.

The trail is about .8 of a mile, only steep for a little bit at the end, and leads to a wonderful view of the valley, the hoodoos, and many other breathtaking rock formations. The trail follows a wash, so do not do this activity if storms are in the forecast. As many have noted it is not recommended during the hottest portions of the day...or at least take plenty of water as there is little to no shade to be had.

There are more hoodoos just around the corner to the south. It is a little more of a hike, but well worth your time.

We did this short hike after doing Canyon X, so we were already a bit tired. This hike is short - roughly 0.8 miles each way, but don't be fooled! It's almost entirely on sand or rocks - so not as easy as I thought it would be. However, it was worth every step. The views and the colors and the landscape were wonderful. It was quite a windy day, so lots of blowing sand. We went on a 75 degree day, and even then it was hot and there is ZERO SHADE. On a hot day, go early, wear a hat and sunscreen and bring lots of water. Good shoes are a MUST. I saw people headed out in Tevas and they would not be appropriate. We both had on hiking shoes (Hoka Speedgoats) and they were perfect. This is an easy 25-30 minute drive from Page, AZ. There's only a portable toilet, and no amenities at this trail head.

If you’re in Page and looking for extra thing to do after you finish with Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend, etc, it’s worth driving 30 minutes on Rt. 89 towards Utah to hike this trail.

The parking lot is on google map, and once you’re there, there are trail signs in some places but just follow the signs and the shoe marks everywhere. About 1.5 miles round trip on sandy / chalky trail. I wouldn’t do this after a rain though.

Views were beautiful!

Visited here on a weekday early afternoon. When I got there I was pretty much only one there but as I wad leaving a lot of people began to arrive. It was nice having the place to myself. The parking area has a few Porta Johns. The trail out to the hoodoos is well marked. For most of it you’re walking in like a wash. Although 99% of this area is out in direct sun there are 1 or 2 spots to catch some shade. Most of it is flat but there are some rockier incline spots you have to maneuver. The rock formations are limited (unlike say Bryce) but cool nonetheless. Awesome colors. It’s a bummer telephone poles cut through taking away from some of the scenery. Hike from parking lot to the Toadstool hoodoo isn’t far. Maybe 15-20 minutes out. Cool to explore the area beyond the Toadstool too. Bring your sunblock and water.
