  • After 1 1/2 miles along the high ridge, the trail leads to a fantastic vantage point. The look is all-round impressive in's range of Montana and Wyoming. The point is home to a sacred place, which is celebrated each year with appropriate ceremonies for most native American peoples. A circle made of stone in the form of a wagon wheel with wooden stakes fenced, symbolizes the importance of life and of the universe, which is adorned with the utensils of the tribes. A rewarding hike total 2 h.

  • We passed through the Bighorn Mountains on US 14 and 14A on our way to Yellowstone National Park. Medicine Wheel is an interesting stop if you are interested in Native American sites, scenic beauty, h...  read more »
  • What a beautiful ride to an amazing destination. The views are superb and the history makes this adventure that more interesting- 
  • It is a overwhelming experience for anyone that practices Native American Spirituality whether your Native or not. I don't like to see some of the items that have been left as offerings there, only prayer tie's should be left.its a long way up but I know it's was 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.
  • It's very sacred to the native american people. The no specific tribe is able to hold credit for the wheel. So, the credit has been given to all native american tribes. Very cool. Feel the calmness in the air, the positive feeling in the air. The walk is definitely worth it. MUST SEE!
  • Definitely on my bucket list. I want to hike around and check out old sites with my family. I'm from Fort Peck Indian Reservation in northeast Montana.
  • While Wyoming is by far one of my favorite places on earth, the Bighorn Mountains hold a special place in my heart. The Medicine Wheel is on my 'Must See" list. The hike, (and yes it is a hike, there is a parking lot down below) is lovely, with numerous wildflowers and a multitude of pika. It is not open during the winter. Even in the summer there is usually a chill, so a jacket is advised, along with sensible footwear. If this is a one time trip to the area, I also recommend Shell Falls, which is at the other end of the National Forest.
