Hiked this trail in May, 2016 with a large group of people on an overcast, warm day. Saw lots of fossils. Hiked from the Hudson-Meng bison bonebed to Toadstool Campground. Check out the bone bed and talk to the rangers, it is a great place.

We drove to Toadstool State Park in July, 1992 on the way up from Texas to the Black Hills. You travel on several miles of gravel road to get there, but I had no problems even pulling a 5th wheel RV. It was well worth the trip.

Another surprise of nature in northwest Nebraska. This Badlands area of Nebraska is wonderful to explore and is quite private. Recommend hiking and climbing when it's dry as the rocks and area will be slippery and hazardous soon after a rain. Took our dog and he had a great time too.

Awesome camping and hiking spot. Keep in mind that the access road to this site is about 15 miles and unpaved. There are six primitive camping sites right next to the trail. The trail is about a mile long with easy to find markers. The hike itself is fairly easy although you may want to deter from the main path, which requires a bit of enthusiasm and climbing. This area is really beautiful and the best thing about Toadstool Park is that it is not well known and therefore very private. I highly recommend camping and hiking this badlands gem.
