The Hoodoos are odd shaped travertine formations standing like statutes in a large rock garden. The sculpted rocks were formed by ancient hot spring deposits on Terrace mountain, then tumbled down in a large landslide. This hike follows the eastern slope of Terrace Mountain to the Hoodoos.

The hoodoos are fascinating rock formations. We saw plenty of wildlife, including marmots and a moose. We heard the pikas, but never actually saw one. At the south end you are rewarded with fantastic views of Bunsen Peak and the valleys to the south.
