We stopped here to take in the views and were not disappointed! Amazing views just spread out before you! We even took some crackers to feed the little ground squirrels 😀😀

This is a wonderful view of the Red River Valley with an opportunity to do some hiking in the badlands. The views are quite stunning and one can only imagine the times when the canyon got its name. You don't need to stay here long...More

A nice place to stop and see the view of the canyon. The layers in the rocks are incredible. Great for a quick stop or even a hike.

I have seen horseshoe canyons in Arizona etc - very deep gorges - this is not quite the same - but it is 30 seconds from the main road - so no harm in having a look.

We dropped by to watch the sun set and the view was spectacular! We continued on down the road and took the Bleriot ferry (a cute attraction not to miss). Great for those who appreciate nature.

Taking the Dinosaur Trail North Loop will bring you quickly to this awe-inspiring spot. We walked down the path a ways and were speechless with the different views. A highlight of our trip to the area!

The views from this place are believable! A definite place to visit. The way we described it was we could imagine all the dinosaurs on the land below.

It's absolutely one of the most spectacular views you'll ever find. My wife and I frequently go out there late at night to look at the stars. The air is so clear you think you're on top of the world. It's definitely worth... More

I think that if you and hubby are in good shape and confident hikers, you could do this with the kids in carriers. I first took my daughter who is now 16, when she was 4. We just hiked down the first part and back up again... More
