View the designated Wild and Scenic Little Missouri River through the Winding Stairs area. This area is known for its unique geological formations and outstanding water features. The most popular segment of the trail is from the Winding Stairs area to Shady Lake. Many hikers use a 4-mile section connecting the Little Missouri Trail to the Athens-Big Fork Trail. This trail consists of a 19.4-mile loop with a 3.3-mile section. Part of the route travels along Forest Roads 38 and 106. The remainder of the route travels an old road that is no longer open to motor vehicle traffic.

Lots of road travel. Good for beginners but not much wilderness on the road.
