Hiking Utah's Toadstool Trail

Utah’s short weird amazing Toadstools Trail

Discover this trail in Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument

Have you ever been surprised, when your jaw literally drops and your eyes figuratively pop out of their sockets? Mine did at the end of a one-mile hike that conveniently started from an accessible parking lot along a major highway in Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument.

These photos should help you decide if this mini trek is worth it. The Toadstools Trail is located along Highway 89 in between Page, AZ and Kanab, UT, the major road connecting Lake Powell to the Zion and Bryce Canyon regions. Enjoy.

There’s little elevation gain, making the Toadstools Trail an easy trek.
This area is dry and hot during the summer, so take water with you.

Once you reach the Toadstool rock formations, explore up and to the left to find more interesting views.
Very few trails in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument offer access as easy as the Toadstools.
It’s a great spot for family portraits and selfies, but only climb the larger rock masses and stay off the Toadstools.
The trail meanders along a dry wash – it’s easy to follow the trampled earth.
The best times to photograph the Toadstools? Morning and late afternoon.
