North Dakota Map

Amazing hike with the family.

The rest area and welcome center offer spectacular views with several options for hiking, whether you want to take a short walk into the painted canyon or you want to explore Teddy Roosevelt National Park in greater depth. The western access point offers the short loop to wet your appetite, while the eastern access point takes you down the painted canyon trail into the greater national park. You can't go wrong with either option.

Defiantly a hard trail to run due to bison tracks making the trail really uneven but it's a great run if your looking for a challenge!

Someone needs to update the map. The trail actually starts down in amidon.

A really fun hike, and a good warm-up for longer and more intense hikes, but we went after a major rainstorm and the mud turned this from a pleasant walking trail into a moderately grueling hike. Neat scenery, and a memorable experience scrambling up slippery mud slopes, but fair warning if you go during/shortly after heavy rain: you will be FILTHY by the end.

Definitely a long trail for an out of shape beginner but beyond the length it was not difficult. Beautiful views of the lake though.
