Beautiful and easy trail that gives a less-travelled view of the rock formations. Bring extra water and sunscreen, especially on hot days. You won't find any shade on the trail, and the white ground at points reflects the sun and makes it feel like a desert hike.

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!

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.
