Description
Waypoints (0)

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.

A really nice, short hike with great views. The trail markers were a bit confusing at one point but we hadn't seen a map of the trail beforehand, so that would have helped. We were greeted by a group of bighorn sheep by the trailhead.

Stunning views of Bighorn Canyon. A great place to groove. Was cool to see the boats going downriver. I had to wait for several bighorn sheep to move away from the trail before I could descend back down to the parking area.

If you don’t want to share Devil’s Canyon with tourists, I recommend this instead of driving to the overlook. The trail was easy, pretty, full of gentle breezes, and dumps you at a stunning view of the canyon. Like most hikes in the area, there is no shade, so plan appropriately.

Easy hike with an incredible view at the end. Be sure to stay to the left of the trailhead as there is one point it can be misleading; we ended up going to the right and it took us off trail. Ended up making our way back to the trail after a short detour. The view is one of the best in the canyon, highly recommend.

Easy, short hike for all levels. We were confused by the signage so ultimately walked around the area. The views are worth it. We encountered an injured Mustang on the trail (we were forewarned). Poor thing. Interesting experience but certainly hard to see.

This is a great trail for any experience level. It is a short hike, but the views are absolutely worth it.

I didn’t see any rattlesnakes but they are out there. Fairly well marked. Awesome views.

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. Video Review: https://youtu.be/dErWuW3zu7Y?t=148

First to Review

The best views of the canyon (although the old Plateau trail near the State Line trail is a close second). Not to mention it's a super short, easy hike.
