Added on Ranger’s Delight for further hike, upon ranger’s suggestion, gorgeous rim, canyons and colors. Bighorn Sheep scat and that of a coyote, probably. 100 degrees, mostly level, little like SW, pretty. Lost trail couple of times, easy to find posts again. 1 hour 15 minutes.

Trail was a bit hard to follow, but it's easy to bushwhack your way back to the road. Great view of the canyon and the river! Make sure to watch out for cacti.

Fun scenic, hike. A bit of a challenge with rocks to climb over and steep inclines to negotiate. But the view at the end is amazing! The trail was a bit hard to follow at times.

I did this trail before I was in Alltrails. I still remember the breathtaking beauty and rugged cliffs.

For a serene view of Bighorn Canyon, follow the trail markers from the trailhead sign just north of the Montana state line. The trail leads to the canyon rim through juniper scrubland above limestone plateaus, culminating in a breathtaking view. You can easily follow the trail markers along the ridge for several hundred feet, enjoying different views of the river-carved canyon with every step.

This trail is good. There is a connecting trail that goes to Rangers Delight that is worth doing.

Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area covers parts of Montana and Wyoming. I drove down and went through Lovell. I stopped at the visitor center there - where you now pay the $5 day fee/$30 year fee as the "fee boxes" were closed. There are over 25 miles of trails in the Southern section of this park. The first section I explored was part of the " 19,000-acre Yellowtail Wildlife Habitat Management Area". I hiked in 1/2 mile twice to see a couple of the historic ranches. There are 4 ranches to explore. Devil Canyon Overlook makes for a interesting place to break.. We took a hike off trail to follow the path that the mustangs follow. Some of the mustangs are easily seen from the road. They also offer kayak and canoe rentals at the first boating/campground, Horseshoe Bend. Tent camping was free on a first come first serve basis. I stayed at Trail creek. Although the camping spots were small they had fire pits and "bear boxes" for your food. There was also a bathroom, trash bins and recycling bins. This is an excellent spot to have your "home base".
