The hike itself wasn't anything spectacular, although it was very smokey when I visited (I heard on a clear day you can see out to the Tetons!). However, the Medicine Wheel itself is very interesting. Would recommend.

A 3-star hike, but rated as 4 because of the unique and meaningful history associated with the trail. Two Native American women were holding a ceremony at the top when we arrived. Great views.

It is worth the stop. It is a 5,000 year old place that a lot of local tribes still use.

Very easy although some may have altitude acclamation issues. Also, please be respectful as this area is considered sacred to Native American tribes.
