YOUR ZION + SOUTHERN UTAH ADVENTURE

Hiking The Toadstools - Outside Kanab UT

Toadstools, mushrooms, hoodoos whatever you want to call them is ok with me! This beautiful hike, located conveniently in between Kanab and Lake Powell, is a must do next time you are driving along HWY 89.

The Toadstools is a fun and easy hike with kids. The famous hoodoo/toadstool like formations have plenty of areas to run, play, and explore. This hike is the perfect way to get out some serious energy next time you are on your way to Lake Powell with kids.


My kiddos absolutely loved this hike.......and that is coming from kids who don't love to hike.....haha! We did this hike for the first time in March and then again 3 weeks later because it was so much fun. Running from toadstool to toadstool and playing hide and go seek kept my kiddos entertained for hours.

This is a hike that I had seen advertised a lot and had I known how easy and kid friendly the hike was I know I would have taken my kiddos much sooner.

LENGTH

1.5 miles round trip with very little elevation gain.


All the exploring will most likely add another half mile.....but whos counting when you are running from toadstool to toadstool.....haha! Depending on how long you explore at the end this hike can easily be done in under an hour.

DIFFICULTY

This trail has very little elevation gain and is ideal for younger kids or elderly hikers.
