great views, some vandalism, muddy in some spots.

Partial Ravines Ravine stroll. Beautiful fall day. Walking with husband that is recovering from knee surgery. Took it slow and easy. There are a couple of steeper areas but he handled them without problems.

This is a great loop with plenty of wildlife. Be mindful of the bison. Keep a good distance between you and them.

One of the Best hikes in Eastern North Dakota, close too Fargo and extremely well maintained trail. Will see cows, lots of birds, deer, squirrel, chipmunks. Iron Spring Creek also has a bridge and is very easy to cross. The North Country Trail association has done a lot of great work to keep this trial updated.

Petrified tree stumps are amazing. After 0.5 entrance trail, go right 1 mi for easier trail to petrified forest remains, then double back to split to go to other petrified forest location- left trail at junction has steep decline off mesa. Watch for posts to stay on trail. In wet weather trail is very slippery.

This was a beautiful hike. Lots of prairie dogs. We didn't see any bison but plenty of signs of them around. Don't do this hike after a rain. Seriously muddy and messy and the mud is impossible to get off your shoes and is very slippery and can be deep mud. You cross the Little Missouri River twice. We did it in Sept and it was about 2.5 - 3 feet deep and totally worth it. There is a small stream you pass as well on the hike but I think only because we had just had plenty of rain and it was full. It was a muddy mess. It was completely serene, beautiful and worth it all. I love this area.

Decent trail, well populated and with several sculptures and historic points of interest along the way. The trail is fully paved and wide enough for cyclists, runners, dog walkers and everyone else. Follows the Missouri River for the most part; my only issue being that there is a pretty busy little road that runs right alongside, so if you’re looking for a quiet walk with no traffic noise / fumes, this is not the one for you. Not for anyone who is seeking to be challenged either, this is as easy as it gets. I enjoyed my stroll though, and would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to stretch their legs and take in some scenery, or do a bit of running.

Wonderful short touristy trail. Prairie Dog towns are always fun to walk through. I came upon a herd of buffalo hanging out by the old entrance. Spectacular

Wonderful short touristy trail. Spectacular views. A must if you're in the area. The trail is in good shape and well marked

Great hike with amazing views. The trail is muddy, overgrown and torn up by hooves in numerous areas. The trail is well marked. The hike was 4.4 miles for me.

Great hike. The trail is in okay shape. It's muddy and overgrown in places. There is good trail marking. The best petrified forrest is on the North leg. The South and East legs are mostly on a prairie plateau. The North legs passes down into a beautiful canyon and out the other side.
