I have not quite completed this trail in its entirety quite yet, but I will. I have sweated many hours hiking this trail, camping along this trail and experiencing blisters and being coated in thick mud. I love this trail. I hope to finish it soon, as I cannot find people many people to do a more than 1 day hike. But be careful when it rains, the ground becomes very slick and could be very hazardous to your well being.

I tried to hike this trail in the late Spring and was surprised at how poorly it was kept up. Several sections had been taken out by landslides or completely overgrown. On the whole, the countryside and rustic appeal of the canyons and rock formations was enough to offset the sometimes very rough hiking. Caution to those who attempt this trail when it rains: The mud on these rocks is like glue mixed with cement.

This hike is pretty nice, it has a self guided hike which is a shorter part of the hike. There are pamphlets at the beginning of the hike. You can also continue on with this hike and it goes up on top of one of the hills. It is very shaded area and when you get to the top there is an awesome view!! Great hike! Its one of the best and shortest in the North Unit.

This hike was a really easy hike with great views of the petrified wood. We got to see some bison on this trail. We went in spring though and there are a lot of ticks in the park! Be prepared!

This trail doesn't have much in the way of scenery, it's mostly just grass infested with prairie dogs. At first I thought they were funny, but after several miles of them yelling at you they get very annoying.

It gets five stars because it is the only decent single track you can ride in the County. Convenient if you're on the AFB too.

Jones Creek Trail

Though I've been there more than once, the last time I was here I did this (morning start 68, noon end 90+) trail as part of the Upper Paddock/Jones Creek Loop . Had to deal with a lot of bison scat and give way to them on the trail, but the last made it worth while. Would recommend this trail to those who want the solitude of an empty trail in a seemingly vast grassland.

A fairly easy trail. It didn't look like anyone had gone through and done any trail maintenance in a while, because the main trail was overgrown with lots of brush and plants. But, I'm not a faint hearted hiker, so this really didn't bother me.
