Basically just walking on a dirt road, but the views are nice.

Great little Badlands "sampler." If you only have time for one hike, I recommend this one. Experience the different types of rock that make up the Badlands along the way, then enjoy a beautiful view at the end. Shaded in the evening.

Great views! Don't need the ladder going up but used it going down... luckily right before it started raining and pouring on us.

Hiked it today, nice trail with lots of Choke Cherries and a few wild raspberries, not sure bit there might have been a little weed growing about 2/3rds the way down the bottom.

Great trail. Very easy. And the views are spectacular once you get to the top. Interesting information about atmospheric balloon tests. Would highly recommend. Dog and kid friendly.

Great hike. Moderate grade creeks and some great views when you get to the top. Only do the loop part if you are an experienced hiker and can bushwhack through the wilderness

Very short trail but the view is really good.

It's a great hike with a wonderful view at the top. A lot of loose rock makes it a little more difficult for dogs

Hiked Buzzard Trail stumbly and thought it was a nice moderately to easy hike. Probably hiked for a little over an hour. The lookout view was great.
