views

Grandest Canyon in the Northern Rockies A landscape of sheer cliffs towering 1,000 feet above a ribbon of blue water. World class fishing and a place where wild horses still run free. Bighorn Canyon is a place where imagination meets reality. Bighorn Canyon has unrivaled recreation possibilities.

We did 3 of the view lookout trails. This one had the best views and you could see much more of the river below. If you are only doing one, this should be it! Super easy hike and very short.

A fun, relatively easy hike. It was a bit steep and rocky at times and the trails were sometimes hard to follow. The view at the State Line Overlook was amazing. The Ranger's Delight view was so-so.

If you have to pick just one hike, take the State Line Trail. It is a bit easier, more scenic with a great view of the canyon. The view at the end of the Ranger's Delight trail barely overlooks the river and canyon. This hike was also a bit more strenuous than the State Line Trail and not as scenic.

nice view of the canyon, not much else

Great trail with fabulous water falls but not fabulous for hot summer days as there is limited shade along this steep climb.

This is an easy trail with a dramatic view at the end. On a scale of one to WOW, it is a double WOW!!!!!

step climb but so worth it

I love checking out those old cabins. Take bear spray. I know there are bears that hang out in the area.

A pretty cool hidden trail in Bighorn Canyon

It is a good place to watch birds.

It was a pretty cool hike.

Park in the designated area on the west side of the park road one-half mile north of the Montana state line. The trail begins on the east side of the road on the lower north edge of the draw. While following the faint road cut, it is easy to feel like the only person that has ever hiked this trail. Continue to follow the trail through the saddle and toward the canyon. At the cut-off fence post and trail marker, you can turn left and hike toward the rim. This is the end of the trail. Walking to the right will bring you into the bend of the river and give unique views of the canyon. Walking to the left, you have a good view of the ledge below with a sheep trail that treacherously traces the canyon rim. For more solitude and exploration go back to the cut-off fence post and continue to follow the road cut and trail markers to the State Line trail. The connecting trail is 0.37 miles each way.

This is a well marked trail and easy to hike. Last time I was on it I saw a herd of bighorn sheep :)

It is an interesting park of Bighorn Canyon. Most of the park is high desert. However, the Lockhart Ranch has a spring running year round making this area greener than the surrounding area. The old log cabins are fun to checkout!
