Closed much of the year, due to Falcon breeding. Nice hike this Xmas with plenty of snow, just wear gaiters. Park right off exit and walk by humps to TH. You can get ~2 miles out and same back, but you can then take other pathways.https://www.blm.gov/or/districts/prineville/recreation/files/Badlands_Overview_Map.pdf

This was a very nice hike. If you're a seasoned hiker, it's fairly easy. For those who don't hike often or are not used to the altitude, I would say it's moderate. We did the whole loop, but the part coming back wasn't anything overly breathtaking. (You do get a bit of a "lost in the woods" feel on that part, and it's far less traveled. We literally didn't see a single person on the way back down.) I would recommend that you stay on the main trail going up and then turn around and take it back down. A very beautiful hike.

Easy loop. Great for a medium length ride with some hills.

FYI! A lot of reviews and websites say that the bat hibernation closure is in November. I am here now. October 1 it closes. So any out there looking for a rain day activity this will not be it . Good luck. It made me put star rating on it. I didn't want to as I haven't seen it
