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.

Perfect trail for my 2 kids and I. We went in the fall, and it was beautiful. The trail is clearly marked and easy to follow with lots of alternative routes if desired.

Great trail! Was tough to locate the Maah Daah Hey Trail from the North branch of the Petrified Forest Loop Trail.

Partial Ravines Ravine stroll. Beautiful fall day. Walking with husband that is recovering from knee surgery. Took it slow and easy. There are a couple of steeper areas but he handled them without problems.

This is a great loop with plenty of wildlife. Be mindful of the bison. Keep a good distance between you and them.

This is North Dakota. FACTS: I flew into Bismarck, ND. I then proceeded on a 909-mile road trip through the badlands to bag the highpoints in ND and SD. Here is ND, highpoint number 26/51 for me and ranked 30/51. TRAILHEAD / HIKE: The route to get to the trailhead from the North (Amidon, ND) is totally washed out and gone and closed until further notice. You must get to the trailhead from the South (Bowman, ND). I have taken the trouble of providing detailed instructions here. From Bowman, ND, go North on 85 There is a sign on the left for 74th Street, there is NO sign on the right Make a right here onto a dirt road (all roads from now on are hard pack dirt) Go exactly 4 miles (reset odometer) Make a Left on 140th Ave SW (it is now labelled and contrary to other reports is not 137th ave) Go exactly 5 miles (reset odometer) Make a Left on 69 Go exactly 1 mile (reset odometer) Look for Red Iron Ranger, that is the parking for the new trailhead The hike is in one direction (due south) and is straightforward and easy. Surprisingly, I did meet two groups who were coming down as I was going up and one gentlemen going up as I was returning. It took me 90 minutes out and back... DINING: Humpback Sally’s: This place is downtown. I parked in the garage around the corner. This is Bismarck’s version of a pretentious “small plates, tapas” kind of place. I had a bourbon cocktail which was well made. The service was good but not especially warm or friendly. The food was good but the portion sizes are ridiculously small. I just can not see how this type of restaurant can survive in Bismarck. MacKenzie River Pizza Grill & Pub: This place is north of downtown. Plenty of free parking outside a stand alone building. The bar and restaurant were packed. I waited 15 minutes for a seat at the bar. I sat next to 3 fellows, one of whom immediately asked me if I wanted an entire order of nachos, since they had messed up the order (nachos had beans and they did not want beans, lol). Nice gesture. We got to talking and I asked him how his pizza was. He immediately reached over and handed me a slice and said try it. Again, wonderful generosity on his part. The pizza was good. I was planning on eating and drinking here as it was close to where I was going to spend the night. But, these 3 gents were soon gone and replaced by 3 other gents. The 3 new gents immediately started drinking and using foul language very loudly (got to the point that many at the bar area were uncomfortable). I had one beer and left. Laughing Sun Brewing Company: This place is in downtown Bismarck. It is in an industrial area, but I was told it is safe. There is plenty of free parking. They serve good craft beers only. The food is BBQ and it is very good as well. The service is warm and genuine and friendly. At about 900pm, a hip hop band started playing (ridiculously loud). Loud to the point that people in the restaurant and bar could not talk to each other. Many people sitting next to me were so annoyed at the loudness that quite a few paid their tab and left, including me. Little Cottage Cafe: This place is in downtown Bismarck. There is plenty of free parking. The place opens at 600am and is filled by 630am. This is a quintessential hometown feel good breakfast place. I sat at the 4 seat counter. The only waitress has been there for 30+ years. The food is great. The service is great. All around, my best meal in Bismarck. IMPRESSIONS: Apparently, when the settlers came, if they were able to build and live on a structure for 5 consecutive years, they were given 160 acres of land. Land is broken up into sections. Each section is 640 acres. Farms and ranches in ND are huge. Unlike the east coast, nobody discusses square feet, they say how many sections do you own? I marvel at the settlers who travelled west and saw the never ending prairie grasses and decided to stay.

Petrified tree stumps are amazing. After 0.5 entrance trail, go right 1 mi for easier trail to petrified forest remains, then double back to split to go to other petrified forest location- left trail at junction has steep decline off mesa. Watch for posts to stay on trail. In wet weather trail is very slippery.

Decent trail, well populated and with several sculptures and historic points of interest along the way. The trail is fully paved and wide enough for cyclists, runners, dog walkers and everyone else. Follows the Missouri River for the most part; my only issue being that there is a pretty busy little road that runs right alongside, so if you’re looking for a quiet walk with no traffic noise / fumes, this is not the one for you. Not for anyone who is seeking to be challenged either, this is as easy as it gets. I enjoyed my stroll though, and would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to stretch their legs and take in some scenery, or do a bit of running.

Great hike. The trail is in okay shape. It's muddy and overgrown in places. There is good trail marking. The best petrified forrest is on the North leg. The South and East legs are mostly on a prairie plateau. The North legs passes down into a beautiful canyon and out the other side.

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 !

Read and follow Jason’s directions on finding the trailhead. Do NOT approach it from the north. The road (137th) from the north is completely demolished and after rain today (9/10/19) a total mess. Follow Jason’s directions from the south. Nice hike once you get there.

the part south of the road isn't worth doing. trail is barely marked and the views aren't worth anything. the north half is a good hike. be advised that probably 10% of the trail is through swamp. also, don't do what I did and hike it the day after rain. I was on all 4s getting up one incline, it was a slip and slide. also, 30$ entrance fee to park. saw three bison though

Great place for an afternoon hike but be sure to grab a nap at the visitor center because the app doesn't have a number of the trails marked.

Solid trail. Google Maps and Apple Maps are confused about how to get you to the trailhead. After that, it’s stunning views with bison and pronghorn.

Had a hard time locating it. Here’s some helpful directions. Head north on 85 from bowman. When u see the butte on the right watch for a dirt road. There is a sign on the left for 74th but no sign on the right. Turn right here. Go a couple miles and turn left on 137. Follow a couple miles. U will pass the butte on the left. Watch for a street sign on the right that says 70. The next dirt road on the left will be 69 but there is no sign. Turn left here. Follow to the end and u will see a red box for donations and also a sign to park for white butte trail. Park here and follow the fence line back to the butte. U will pass thru a gate and come to the base of the butte. At this point it looks like u could go either way. Go left up the butte and u will see the trail continue to the high point. Got there right before sunset and made it up and back in less than an hour with a few quick pics at the top. Please be sure to leave a donation as the property owner is nice enough to allow high pointers to chase their dreams!

Excellent hike definately worth the 10 mile loop. The petrified forest was amazing! We saw one wild horse and hundreds of buffalo!!

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.
