Fairyland Canyon, located one mile north of the National Park entrance station, offers an opportunity to see hoodoos at an "eye-to-eye" level. These hoodoos have inspired imaginations for years, and visitors today are bound to be as enchanted as were the Paiute Indians, who saw the hoodoos as ancient peoples turned to stone.
Located in the north end of the park, the structures that fill Fairyland Canyon are younger (erosionally speaking) than those further to the south in the main amphitheater, and will be developed more fully as the erosional processes continue to wear away the land in a north and westward direction. By contrast, immediately to the south is Campbell Canyon, where you can hike through a "hoodoo graveyard." In this region, all the hoodoos have eroded away leaving multicolored clay mounds, which like tombstones, mark their passing. Campbell Canyon can only be reached by hiking the Fairyland Loop Trail.
