  • Easy hike if accustomed to hiking at nearly 10,000ft elevation. Trail is about three miles round-trip.Imagine the wind nearly always blows so be prepared for that. On the last morning of September we ...  more »
  • The hike was a bit dusty and hot (not much shade), but we were able witness some ranchers moving their cattle ahead of us, the kids loved that. At the wheel, it was very neat to look around and find t...  more »
  • Access is up 2 mile of forestry road off highway 14A. From the parking area a steady walk of 1.5 miles on the gravel road brings one to the Medicine Wheel on top of the mountain with expansive views i...  more »

  • It's a place you must make a pilgrimage to at least once in your life. The magic is strong here. This is a very rare and wonderful place.
  • A long hike uphill in both directions but definitely worth it. The view from the top is amazing. Manned daily by Park rangers. Etiquette is whisper quietly when viewing the ancient rock wheel. Very spiritual feel.
  • Didn't make it to see the medicine wheel because it was closed due to snow, but the drive there was spectacular. Ecstatic to go back and get to see it in the summer.
  • Enjoyed the experience SO much, long walk up hill both ways !! The view was SO amazing -felt like we were on too of the world! Very much worth the trip if you're in the area. We also saw our first moose!
  • This is truly an amazing place. Because of snow, it is reliably accessible only from about July 1-Sept 1, though dates may vary. It's an easy walk (about a mile) up from the parking lot which ism in turn, a mile or so up a steep gravel road. Sadly, many of the photos that show up when you do a google map search are of other medicine wheels, elsewhere. For example, the main image, of huge, complete, perfect stone circle on a green field is somewhere else, as is the picture with red rocks on the background. This medicine wheel is on a high, windy, bald knob off 14ALT between Lovell and Burgess Junction.
