  • The hike itself has a decent hill but isn’t too difficult. It was snowing during our visit so the views were obscured some but on a clear day you can see all the way to the Badlands.  more »
  • Nice, easy hike with great views. Definitely recommend this hike! Watch for the prairie dog town as you drive near the trail head - fun and entertaining diversion!  more »
