Pets in the park must be restrained at all times, and are not permitted in park buildings, on trails, or in the backcountry. Be aware that dogs can agitate bison and other animals, creating a dangerous situation.
Signs along the Scenic Loop Drive will point you in the direction of this trail, which has a dedicated parking lot. Heading out a short ways on the trail will bring you to spectacular views of the Little Missouri River Valley. This is the most photographed spot in the park and would be a fantastic place to visit at sunset or after a thunderstorm. You may see wild horses or bison crossing the river below, as well as birds and wildflowers.
