HikingGreat!

its a great trail and best done on a cooler day because it's all in the sun with no trees for shade. it's well used and easy to follow the path. wonderful views of the big horns at the end of the trail!!

I came here to hike, but unless you’re a beginner I would say this is a better trail for running. Not much shade or SUPER great views, but still quite pretty!

Very nice trail with the first .6 miles very flat and easy along a ridge. After that it is drops down into valleys and back up. Some really nice views of ranch land and the Bighorn Mountains in the distance. Dogs can be off leash but just be leashes when encountering livestock or wildlife. There is a small prairie dog colony at around the 1 mile mark. Our dog was very interested in their squeaking so we had to call her back and leash her for the next half mile or so.

Only went out 2 miles before turning back. The trail closes one hour before sunset and opens one hour after sunrise. So plan accordingly. There is absolutely no shade, just prairie. A good hike for morning, evenings, spring or fall conditions.
