Several times a year I take some youth out to the mountains and this usually includes a trip to the Siffleur Falls. This time I was looking for something different and found this trail report for Hoodoo Creek and decided to take the young people to the caves. The wind was quite severe and coming off the frozen lake, it was pretty chilly too. As we proceded up the creek bed we soon came across the frozen creek and had some fun sliding on the ice and trying not to slip as we went higher. There is quite a bit of glacial till and many large boulders to hop over and navigate around. Our group got to the first set of impressive hoodoos at about half way to the fork in the river. The group played around, climbed the scree slopes and made a few slides down the packed snow. We didn't continue much pasted these hoodoos as the wind caught up with some in the group and a few people started to get chilled, so I decided we had plenty of fun and it was time to head back. As was suspected, on the way back to the highway, the wind was blowing in our faces and gave us a more reason not to continue up the river further. I very much enjoyed this hike and plan on returning to Hoodoo Creek in the near future to explore higher up.
