About this image

There are several hoodoos formed in Cretaceous sandstones along the Hoodoo Trail in the Ojito Wilderness. See the BLM Ojito Wilderness website for more information. Hoodoos are formed when harder rocks are underlain by softer rocks that are less resistant to erosion. The harder rock can protect the softer rock beneath it until the hoodoo becomes unbalanced and topples.


The trailhead for the Hoodoo Trail is 400 feet NE of a parking area off Cabezon Road. Zoom in on the map to see more detail.
