Description
Waypoints (0)

Park at dirt roundabout near the informational sign. Just up from the roundabout, there is a gate with a metal pin that you can use as a lever to raise the wire loop over the post and open the gate. Continue along the road. There will be a fork at the beginning that leads to a lookout on the right. Continue on the two-track road for ~1.5 miles. There is a wood post that marks the end of the road. Past this post you can follow some deer-made trails. You can turn around where the trails are not evident and the area becomes a wide space of sagebrush. (Though it might be possible to go further.)

Very easy trail and mostly flat or gentle grade. Follow the jeep trail for about 1.5 miles, then continue for another mile on a game trail. That's as far as I could go without dropping into the steep canyon. I saw a snake sunning on the trail and either a fox or weasel. Plus plenty of birds. I didn't see a waterfall but I only looked over into the canyon in a few spots and could've missed it if it is down there.

View is nice and its a cool solitude hike. My main issue was the trail seems more like an atv trail not just for hikers. Also was hard to find as there are no signs. Gorgeous place tho. If it was a real hiker's trail i would have liked it a lot more.

Not a bad hike. You don’t get to water and there is little to no shade but it was perfect for the dogs and perfect length for a beginning of the season hike.

I wouldn’t recommend this trail if your looking for a waterfall. We went close to 5 miles before turning around and no waterfall! I do recommend if you like a dry, dirty, tick infested trail. And actually there really wasn’t a trail, rather lots of rocks and sagebrush.

Easy to get to and mild terrain on top. I did find a tick crawling on my pants leg after returning to the truck. Lots of bird habitat!

Remote area with an awe-inspiring view up close to the rim of the canyon. Lots of wyoming sagebrush and crested wheatgrass. Tons of birds - saw a loggerhead shrike on my way in. Take your time with this hike.
