  • A small visitor center with a big job. Wonderful and passionate ranger willing to share information. Came excited about the Hagerman Horse fossils and found out so much more. 3 miles of the original Oregon trail well preserved. Also found out about the Minidoka war relocation camp where nearly 13,000 people where imprisoned. If you love history this national monument has more than enough to offer.
  • For the people rating this park with 3 or lease stars....It is protected for a reason. The first decendents of modern day horses came from here and it is a valuable archeological sight where numerous species have been discovered. Yes it is no Grand Canyon or Zion but it has a history and beauty of it's own. The Oregon trail also cuts through it making it more interesting. Makes for a good day trip.
  • Good views and a nice trail 3 mile trail(one way). Didn't make it to the visitor center, which is in town.
  • Pretty cool stop. Recommend
  • Underwhelming is the perfect word here. If you're in the area and driving by, the visitor center makes for an okay visit, but the two overlooks out of town are simply a waste of time. It's hard to believe this is actually classified as a national monument.
