Hiked this trail in October and it was great for how short it ended up. I was hoping for a longer hike. I had studied a forest service map and did not have navigation with me and still managed to hike it just fine.

A nice day of hiking. Pretty deep snow at times, and some slippery switchbacks. Trail very easy to spot and follow.

Unfortunately I had the worst hiking experience on this trail. I tried hiking it on memorial weekend this year with my husband. We started our hike in Medora and didn’t get very far. I really wanted to like it- the landscape was beautiful. The trail conditions however were terrible. The trail was overgrown and barely visible and with every step we got stuck in the clay-like mud. We had so much mud on our shoes that we had to stop every 10 ft (this is not exaggerated- as much as I wish it was) to shake the mud off. After about 5 miles in those conditions we decided to set up our tent to wait until the morning and see if the trail had dried . Due to the 6ft high grass the sun never got the chance to dry the trail. After hours of debating we decided to head back to medora. This was the first trail I ever quit. I’ve hiked in all kinds of conditions before, but nothing quite as terrible. I wish everyone who decides to hike it in the future good luck- make sure to hike in the mids of summer when the trail is dry. And take precautions for the insane amount of mosquitoes and ticks on the trail.

One of the Best hikes in Eastern North Dakota, close too Fargo and extremely well maintained trail. Will see cows, lots of birds, deer, squirrel, chipmunks. Iron Spring Creek also has a bridge and is very easy to cross. The North Country Trail association has done a lot of great work to keep this trial updated.

fun trail, ran into a few bison, takes you away from the road and into the back country .

Awesome trail! It was super duper wet and muddy when I went , it had rained the day prior. At one point I was almost waist deep in water when you cross the creek (numerous times). The views were absolutely amazing though ! Also ran into a herd of bison , probably 80 bison were about 1 mile from the end. Spent a while watching them and then looped this trail back to jones creek trail. I’d for sure hold off on this one if it recently rained though , I was walking/sliding about 1 mile per hour hahaha !

Just hiked the Achenbach loop with my brother-in-law on the Labour Day long weekend. One of the most interesting and beautiful trails I’ve ever done. Incredible landscape and views, one of the best wilderness camp spots I’ve ever found, and bison everywhere. The downsides are that it is a bit overgrown, and it can be very easy to get lost. I would be hesitant to attempt it for the first time without downloading the All Trails map and using the GPS. This worked extremely well for us, although on the south sides of the river it was still difficult to find the trail, and in a few places the marked trail differs from the original trail route on the map and the route shown on All Trails. It also branches onto animal trails a lot, and some of the markers are difficult to find or have been knocked over by the bison. So if you are at all uncertain about the path you’re on, check your app. It’s also a challenging trail with no tree cover, and as many people will tell you, you need to have a solid water plan. Here was our strategy (which worked really well): we parked at the Oxbow Overlook and hiked the North Achenbach to the Juniper Campground. At the campground we topped up our 3L hydration packs and added an extra 4L in a dromedary bag, then hiked into the hills on the South Achenbach to camp. Between the 2 of us we had about 1L or less left when we got back to Oxbow the next day. I’d also recommend doing it later in the year, when the bison are more docile and the creek beds and low areas are dry (the mud out there can be a nightmare). I’d also recommend hiking sandals (not flip flops) for the river crossings.

We decided to do the trail in one day, going counterclockwise starting at Juniper Campground. Our gps map saved us a few times as the trail isn't clearly marked nor well trodden especially on the south Achenbach near the river. I wouldn't recommend this hike for anyone without great navigational tools/skills or physical fitness. Really beautiful scenery...it reminded me of the Cappadocia region in Turkey. Two river crossings were involved. Both of us were up to our knees and the water was muddy. Hiking sandals is the best footwear for this. The river bottom was pretty solid. All in all, it is doable as a day hike but keep your wits about you and reassess your pace around Oxbow lookout where the adjacent road ends.

Easy hike, albeit hot. Bring lots of water, a hat, and sunglasses. Spotted horses, Buffalo, a snake, and a million prairie dogs. Plus wildflowers, sagebrush, and amazing views. Loved it. My seven year old did as well.

I hiked in about three miles from the trailhead. I would have easily gone all the way to the road and back except for the fact that the trail was also being used by large herds of bison and they have the right of way. Most awesome traffic jam ever but it does slow you down. On couple I met were waiting over an hour for the herd to pass! The scenery is beautiful of course. I went on a sunny day in late August starting around 8:00 AM. The trail winds through a prairie dog town and over a rise. About a mile in I encountered a large bison herd. I took my time and made it past them safely. The water crossings were pretty easy. The mud was sticky and slippery but there was a solid bottom. Otherwise the trail was pretty easy.

Just getting back into mountain biking, so I only did the first four miles, starting at the north trailhead. All-Trails really should give directions to whichever trailhead is nearer. I'm about 30 minutes from the north trailhead, but when I saw it initially I kept scrolling cause I wasn't about to drive over 2 hours after work to find a place to ride. A local forest service employee recommended it and gave me directions, or I'd have never tried this amazing trail

This was a very nice scenic trail. Saw about 4 or 5 deer. When I went up the North Fork trail it was pretty steep, but doable, and going down the Redetzke trail was fun cause it was mostly all down hill. There were probably three spots I had to ride through some mud, but the rest was awesome! Had a blast!

Probably a nice trail, the prairie dogs were cool, but the flies were absolutely unbearable. They wouldn’t stop biting! Too painful to enjoy a hike.

I only did half because the creek got high and when I tried to find an alternative way around I came across a rattlesnake too close for comfort. Otherwise, lots of adorable prairie dogs along the way. No bison or horses. Beautiful views of the park all throughout. Pretty flat and mild. Definitely recommend long pants and sleeves even in the heat because of high grass. Little shade so wear a hat or buff.

I did the East loop. 11.5 miles saw more horses(2) and bison(2) than people(1). I always crossed the creek off trail. Trail crossings were to wide and deep but never had to travel more than 200 yards.

We went two miles in and then back. Lots of bindweed in bloom in prairie dog town. Abundant yellow clover and sage. At about 1 mile in a little shade under a tree, but that was the only shade. Saw rock with ranch branding. Soon after this rock the trail split and we took it to the left up to an arch and looked out across the land. Wild horses and buffalo were grazing in the distance. Took lots of pictures at arch, had a snack and headed back.

This was an easy but gorgeous trail, we started at 6:05am and went 1.5 miles in and then turned around instead of doing the whole thing. Saw a stallion, tons of prairie dogs and songbirds, rabbits, a mule deer buck in velvet, tadpoles in the creek and evidence of bison and elk. Sky was overcast when we started so colors popped nicely.

Late May I hiked seven miles (total) across the Little Missouri from cottonwood campground in TRNP. Marker posts are great to find as the trail is fairly overgrown in this area. Great views. As a birder I hiked slow and found Lazuli Bunting, Spotted Towhee and more. Hoping to come back (fr/Wis) and hike or backpack longer sections this fall.

Just finished 144 mile through hike. Water, Water, plan ahead. Use the cache. Livestock has all streams & ponds unusable. Most beautiful & picturesque trail I ever hiked. In T.R. park north trail was hard to find due to short posts & high weeds. All - trails really helped.
