Amazing views along the hike with lots of Birds, flowers, butterflies and marmots. The wheel itself is quite spectacular.

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.
