Very interesting easy hike. Not well marked. Some interesting hoodoos and painted mounds. Do not go after rains. Even 1 week after rains the path still had muddy areas that act like quicksand. Many wild animal prints from badgers to cats to deer. Didn’t see any but be aware they’re around. Not heavily visited. Poor signal in area. Bring water.

I love going to the Bisti. Lots of amazing rock formations. It can be hard to find the various named formations but well worth the effort!

This is the northern trailhead into the wilderness and is the best to see more formations. Yet, I expected more. Great for solitude and and a nice backpack trip. Just expected more.

It was a fun hike. Super chill and no established trail and freedom to go where ever, but remember to travel on durable terrain. Explore the petrified wood and numerous fossil. Good for children and the hole family.
