Good short hike. For geology buffs - amazing!

Currently closed due to a washout. The ranger said it would be closed for a while since it was a pretty major washout

This trail is off the Scenic Loop Drive in the south unit of the Teddy Roosevelt National Park. There is one place where the trail is really steep, and we had to be careful not to slip and fall. The rest was easy and nearly level.
