A mile north of the Devil Canyon Overlook junction, you will see Sullivan’s Knob. Begin your hike from the parking area. Below the parking area two trails meet. One, an ancient trail, known as the Bad Pass Trail, was seasonally traversed by American Indians moving between the Bighorn Basin and the Northern Plains. Nature is in the process of reclaiming this trail and at times it seems to be camouflaged by the juniper, mountain mahogany, and sagebrush. The other, a modern trail, will lead the visitor south of the hill in front of the parking area and to the canyon rim. This is a great place to try making the canyon walls echo.

I did this some time ago but remember it well. Reading above, it becomes obvious to me that I took the wrong trail. The trail I was on was overgrown.

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.
