Pretty views of the canyon and river. Nice way to get a birds eye view of some very cool landscapes. Very manageable walk with inclines.

Loved this hike, Wind Canyon is beautiful! The fall colors just setting in against the light colored rocks. The red grasses were my favorite! You must see the sunset from there!

Nice short hike with great views. We hiked this trail at sunset for photos and again the next day. Both had great views of the Little Missouri and area wildlife.

Nice, short hike--great views of rock formations and the river. It would be a great introductory hike for kids.

My sister and I hiked this with my 4-year old and 1-year old. We loved the trail! It has amazing views of the Little Missouri River and surrounding Badlands! There are some elevation changes that were challenging for my 4-year old, but she did just fine with a little help!

Another trail in Teddy Roosevelt that we really enjoyed as a family. Great views of the river bend. Doesn't take a lot of time, so make sure you stop and enjoy the view. Posted some pictures, hopefully they will help with your trail planning!

This is very short, and it's hard to even call this a trail. It's more like a scenic overlook, but the views were amazing overlooking the Little Missouri, and I saw a lone bison nearby.

This was excellent! I really enjoyed it and the solitude that was available. I went at 5pm or so, so there were not too many people. Great vistas.
