Wonderful short touristy trail. Prairie Dog towns are always fun to walk through. I came upon a herd of buffalo hanging out by the old entrance. Spectacular

An easy level out and back through a prairie dog town (watch your step). The building is stone built and set among beautiful rock formations. When we were there a band of wild horses were grazing on a slope to the west. The only negative thing was that you could see and hear the traffic on I94 but then again this was an entrance station so you’d expect that.

Easy out and back to the Old East Entrance of the park. Goes through a prairie dog town, and we had lots of Lazuli Bunting’s on nearby shrubs. Some slightly muddy areas but nothing that is a real issue.

This trail is a good way to start your trip, it’s a blast into the past! and thrust you into the mind frame of the ‘Ol days’.

Cool old building! The prairie dogs were chirping their hearts out.

flat terrain. Easy, level ground for those not looking for tough terrain, this is perfect. Great history!!... best part of the trail :)

Super easy & beautiful walk out to the remnants of the Old East Entrance. If this is at the end of your scenic loop (depending on which way you drive) it’s a nice way to stretch your legs and get up close to some prairie dogs!!

Easy out and back, fairly flat hike. Beautiful wildflowers and hilly views. Great to see a small piece of national park history in Colonel Roosevelt's National Park.

Simple, easy trail across a flat area. You get to walk through a prairie dog town, but they go into their holes when you walk through.
