“A run through badlands and rolling grasslands.”— Karen Ryberg
From here, the trail proceeds 7 miles south, crossing two large badlands drainages that provide some extended climbing and descending. The trail makes for a nice loop of about 15 miles, using the Maah Daah Hey and Bennett Trail to get back to the Bennett Campground. From the junction of the Cottonwood and Maah Daah Hey Trail, one could also run 2.5 miles south on Kate's Walk on the Maah Daah Hey Trail and access Beiciegel Creek Road.
