Very good nature trail, the guide at the start of the trail was very informative and I learned a lot. Also had spectacular views

Bison tracks on the trail at multiple locations. Beautiful views. Once at the top, continue on with the trail (not part of the official loop) for another, more stark ending and greater exposures. only ads an extra 5-10 minutes.

Seemed harder than it was because of the heat, but this trail has beautiful views.

We really enjoyed this hike. Plenty of stairs but they lead to great views of the badlands. Not a long hike. Buffalo tracks on the trail after you clear the stairs so be prepared for wildlife on this one. We enjoyed all our hikes in Teddy Roosevelt NP. I hope the pictures posted will help you with your trail planning!

Amazing views, paste your self on the trail unless you love stairs. Overall it kicked me and girlfriend butts and was definitely a good hike.

A steep climb at the beginning but not that bad. For you reward you get a nice view of the surrounding area.
