Head north on US 89 to Big Water, Utah. Go 0.6 miles (.96 km) to a "T" and turn left onto K7100. Go 2.5 miles (4 km) to a corral (past the fish hatchery) and park. Hike north up Wahweap Creek. The first hoodoos start at about mile 3.6 (km 5.79). Watch for a lone juniper tree on the left and head toward the hoodoos. There are 3 "coves" of hoodoos and of course the most famous is the last one you get to.
