RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A group of small hoodoos of the Cutler sandstone formation.

Getting There 

My directions will be vague because I wasn't taking down any mileage on this trip and was on a bicycle.
From Hurrah Pass drive south on Lockhart Basin Road. After passing the turnoff for the Chicken Corners there is a difficult 4wd maneuver, even with very high clearance. Just past that, the road turns to the west and after a bit there will be a group of two or three hoodoos next to the road on the left . They are very obvious.
You can also approach from the south via Indian Creek, and you don't have to go over the bad 4wd spot. Even though high clearance is still wanted.
