Very short trail, the main point being the overlook of the Little Missouri River. Great view.

Mountain biked part of this trail in 2005, then hiked other sections in 2007 or so. When raining the clayey, gumbo soil can be difficult to ride in. During dry weather, (or when the ground is frozen), it is easy riding and walking. Very hot and dry in the summer, so be prepared. It is the best marked trail I have ever been on, with two green wooden posts visible at most locations on the trail.

Currently closed due to a washout. The ranger said it would be closed for a while since it was a pretty major washout

A steep climb at the beginning but not that bad. For you reward you get a nice view of the surrounding area.
