The Toadstool Hoodoos are peculiar rock formations resembling mushrooms. The hike to Lake Powell from the Kanab region will take you to this area nestled in the Grand Staircase –Escalante National Monument, and unlike other hikes around the region, this one is free of cost and kid-friendly. Walking past the canyons, you will be greeted by the first toadstool of Toadstool Hoodoos and on the way ahead, you will find many such formations. The area is like a rural playground where the kids would love to climb the rocks and you will be bewitched with the view of the Paria River Valley.

Random trail on the way to Lake Canyon National Park from Zion. Short, beautiful, easy hike. Go over the structure like the sign says, scramble past it, can be deceiving but press on. Very unique trail, great photo opportunities, really a must see. Encountered some high winds on the trail and got a little sandy.
I was staying in Kanab but had an extra day to explore the area (after already exploring Zion and Bryce). I went to Page, AZ and on the way back stopped at the Toadstool Hoodoos. It's not quite the same level as the hoodoos at Bryce. But it is still quite special. I loved that it is more quiet (when I first arrived, there was only one other group there), and the trails in the winter are slightly less evident which let me explore. Alot of fun, would def recommend!
Pretty place with plenty of things to climb on and look at. Not too crowded and very fun with friends. Really dry, so bring some water.
Really nice easy hike. Great rock formations and a beautiful place.
Was an easy walk to see the toadstool rocks. Just a very pleasant walk
