We only hiked a portion of this trail but it was still a highlight for us. We were able to get close to bighorn sheep!

Bring more water than you think you need, and plenty of sunscreen! Stunning yet accessible trail

Scenic and easy stroll through mostly flat land. Very easy to go off trail and explore rockier areas with big canyons. We saw some deer, no rattlesnakes though!

well marked trail. it's a great combination of rolling plains to the north and the badlands to the south.

Only did a short portion, but found a set of fossilized teeth within a mile of the trail head. Super fun, but bring an extra set of clothes.

Lots of chances to see wildlife. Get ready for lots of sun and danger of rattle snake.

one of a kind rock formations

This is a largely flat trail with spectacular views. You may see some big horn sheep. The bighorn sheep seem to be more active in the early afternoon. It is possible to extend the hike through some short out and back trails along the way.
