Hiking the HooDoos in Fairmont, British Columbia

Located in beautiful Fairmont, the HooDoos property includes a moderate hike that is 3.2km out and back with some fairly steep hills and seemingly continuous inclines at the start of the trail (coming from someone in a knee brace so if you are fit and healthy you will likely enjoy those inclines!).

Informative Signs Posted at the Trailhead
The Nature Trust of British Columbia manages this land
There has been lots of work done already!

This land is actually owned by the Nature Trust of British Columbia and includes 10,000 acres of conservation land! I had no idea this organization even existed in our province.

Lots of informative signs along the way

The hike was beautiful and although it was an overcast day, there was plenty of gorgeous scenery along the way.

On our way up
These are the Dutch Creek HooDoos!

The HooDoos formation is so unique
It was surreal to be standing at the top of the HooDoos with this gorgeous view!
We drove past the HooDoos from the Highway afterwards!
I can’t believe how high up we were- no wonder the views were so amazing
Gorgeous views from the top and the bottom!!!

We did not have the greatest weather for this hike and it started to rain as we made our way down, which quickened our pace.

The views were still gorgeous along the way and we learned a lot thanks to the informative signs posted along the trail.

I highly recommend driving past the HooDoos after your hike. We turned right out of the parking lot and drove along the highway until we passed the HooDoos completely. Our kids could not believe how high up we had gone!

My photos do it no justice, this is one you need to see for yourself! If you are in Fairmont, go hike the HooDoos and you will not only see some beautiful scenery but learn some amazing history about Beautiful British Columbia!

I am a 33 year old Mom of two, married to my wonderful husband living in Beautiful British Columbia. My kids are 8 and 11 and pretty much complete opposites! My daughter loves to Road Trip like her Mama and my son is more ‘are we there yet?’ From 8 hour road trips to see family, ferries to the island or just a good old drive up a dirt road, I’ll have tips to keep the kids entertained, food to pack and road reports! We are so fortunate to live in this beautiful place surrounded by mountains and rivers and endless trails to explore! Follow me and see how I maintain my sanity on these trips!
