Hoodoos and Hoodoo Trail

Hoodoos take millions of years to form and stand 5 to 7 metres tall. Each hoodoo is a sandstone pillar resting on a thick base of shale that is capped by a large stone. Hoodoos are very fragile and can erode completely if their capstone is dislodged (in other words, no climbing allowed). The protected Hoodoos site is a guaranteed spot to see Hoodoos but smaller versions of these sandstone giants can be found all over the Badlands. You can even play "spot the Hoodoo" as you drive along Highway 10 South, also known as Hoodoo Trail.

The Hoodoos make a great stop on the way to the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site in East Coulee.
