Hoodoo Creek

Three kilometers south of Windy Point there is a usually dry creek bed marked by a large pile of rocks on the hill side of the road. It is Hoodoo Creek, named after two very fine specimens of hoodoos, earth pillars with a cap stone, formed by the erosion over centuries. This is a half hour scramble along the rubble of the creek bed with a short, tricky section where the creek has carved a V-shaped cut into the rocks. Attempt in dry weather and with good footwear only.
