Description

This is likely the most photographed spot in the park. It provides a spectacular view of the Little Missouri River Valley in an area with a big bend and steep cliffs along the river. It is also a good spot to see wild horses and bison accessing the water.

Short Hike: The viewpoint is approximately a quarter of a mile from the parking lot.

Family Friendly: A short hike, and you will likely see wildlife.
