  • Beautiful view of the river as you hike the ridge. We didn't go all the way, took nice path back. Only problem is parking. Not much of it.

  • Good area for a picnic and a short hike after eating. We wanted lunch and shade. We found the opportunity here. It was a short walk to our table and there were 6 right beside the parking lot. Most of the tables had shade. There is a nice trail leading to an overlook of the Yellowstone river.
  • Nice picnic area, short hike to great falls overlook.
