Due to past washout, the trail was hard to follow. With so many other spectacular trails in the park, this one isn't as impressive. I did spot a mule deer at close proximity along this trail.

We had a great hike here over the Labor Day long weekend. The badlands rock formations are wonderful and we had the opportunity to see a lot of wildlife including Bison, Prairie Dogs and even a rattle snake. The first mile or so of this track (starting near the park entrance) is a bit narrower and steeper than we expected. I would suggest long pants because the undergrowth is quite prickly.

Definitely an adventure with some areas through high grass and jumping small rivers but worth it to see every type of topography the park has to offer. Saw bison bones on the hike but limited animal life in August

Defiantly a hard trail to run due to bison tracks making the trail really uneven but it's a great run if your looking for a challenge!

This trail was beyond my equipment and provisions. Physically, I could've walked the trail, however my judgement told me, I did't have the equipment required for such a trek. The outdoors requires a level of respect, and out hear anything can happen.

I enjoyed the photos, don't buy upgrades walk'em !

Buckhorn trail at Theodore Roosevelt National Park north unit was a great one day hike. It had a great mixture of hills, flats, and scenery. My favorite part was seeing a massive herd of bison on the plateau.

Currently closed due to a washout. The ranger said it would be closed for a while since it was a pretty major washout

This trail is off the Scenic Loop Drive in the south unit of the Teddy Roosevelt National Park. There is one place where the trail is really steep, and we had to be careful not to slip and fall. The rest was easy and nearly level.

NOTE*** this trail is located in the North Unit of the park. It is an hour north of Medora. The closest city is Grassy butte or Watford City! This is a great trail for backpacking or an extended day hike. It stays on the north end of the park and there alot of up and down and you cross a creek. There is a spring located along the trail. If you start at the caprock coulee trail head you can see a prairie dog town just a half mile up.
