Great view for this short hike.

It was easy to miss the parking lot with the only sign there. We had to turn around and glad we did. Great return for the short hike.

in case you do make it in the lottery to Coyottes Buttes choose to go here, different but fantastic and easy to acces, no permit required. You may drive by even after visiting the wave.

Again I wasn't prepared for the long trek to the toadstool. Had I been prepared, I would have had a better time. The trail is narrow in some places and I got stuck behind a large family moving SLOWLY. The "payoff" was just ok, made for some cool pictures, but the other visitors would not get off the rock, so...

My wife and I hiked it after a rain storm the day before. So it was a little slick. However it was do-able. When we got there the scenery was outstanding. However there were still a lot of people there, so the serenity wasn't very well.

We loved the Toadstool Hoodoos. So unique and unexpected. Short hike and no crowds. Perfect! We heard about it from a tour company who suggested we stop at the BLM for other ideas...it is easy to find along Rte 89. Other reviews: worthy, easy, big payoff, unique, unexpected describes it all. Easy walk. Weird...you have to see it to believe... More

If you are looking for that perfect hike with few people and an other-worldly experience this is it! The toadstool are cool to see and not to hard to get to - just watch your time of day as it can get toasty!

This a short hike (and not too difficult) from Hwy. 89 about 45 miles from Kanab, Utah. There is a well marked trail that is easy to follow. Hint: The trail does go up and down a bit but if you take the wash, it makes you walk a little further but it's flat and sandy so it's very easy... More

We had no plans to stop here; we simply saw the small sign off the side of the road. this place resembles what I would expect Mars to look like. My kids had so much fun exploring...and me too! The coolest thing about the short out and back hike, the toadstools, the tall slots at the back wall...is that we... More

A quick and easy hike which is worth doing if you have the time. The trail isn't clearly marked at all so be sure to keep you're eyes peeled so you don't get lost or confused. We did this trail in early feb at around 4pm and were pleasantly surprised that it was only us and another couple there. Very... More
