Toadstool Geologic Park features a one-mile-long interpretive loop trail (an informative site map is available at the entrance). Visitors can scramble (gently) over spectacular cliffs and weather-blasted geological formations, and see the fossilized remnants of ancient horses, saber-toothed cats, brontotheres, and more.
The park also serves as a starting point for a three-mile long trail to the Hudson-Meng Bison Kill site.
Know Before You Go
Directions are available on the official website.
Toadstool is amazing while it's raining and you can see the tiny rivers running down. The long gravel road can be treacherous when wet, though. The colors glow best shortly after dawn and before dusk. Bring your own water.
