HIKING WIND CANYON TRAIL Teddy Roosevelt National Park, Medora, North Dakota

Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: June 19, 2022

This short .5-mile trail followed a scary cliff edge with a 55-foot hill climb mid-way along the route. Parallel to the sandy, narrow trail were lots of pretty wildflowers. The trail had spectacular views of the Little Missouri River 200 feet below. You could see part of the 144-mile Maah Daah Hey Trail on the other side of the river used by hikers and mountain bikers. After hiking several other trails, we returned that evening and set up our lawn chairs. This was perhaps the best location in the park to view incredible sunsets. It didn’t disappoint us, but it was short lived as clouds with strong winds moved in.
