  • 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 »
  • 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.
  • It's inspirational, moving that generations of people have visited this reverent site to commune with nature and spirits, and it still continues today.
  • Really neat place! Take a few minutes to walk up to the wheel. I did, and I'm glad I did. Note that some of the photos here on Google are not of this particular place.
  • It's a climb but I made it at 69 years of age WORTH IT
  • I live in Australia and have had this love for Native Indians for as long as I can remember, I had waited 60 years to get to go to American and I did last year, I went to Aspen Col, how it happened I don't know but I got to go to a private Ute blessing of a Peace Pole. I can not tell you what this meant to me as I met the Ute elder and we talked for some time, I felt like I was so blessed and so honoured I will never ever forget it. I am going back in May of next year and The Ute Elder is taking me to meet other Native people, I feel that I was meant to go when I did and I was meant to meet with the Ute Elder, he was so wise and so proud and so kind, I just feel so proud to have done this after so many years of waiting...... The Medicine Wheel will be one of the things that I will get to go to, I am so lucky.... thank you.
