  • The gravel road in a short one lane road. It was worth the trip up the mountain to get there, We parked at the gravel lot and a ranger came out to great us. He told up about the Landmark and the the s...  more »
  • I wanted so much to see this but my camper would not make it up 14a from Lovell. I had to turn around 9 miles short. 8-10 degrees hills were rough. I found a great museum display on Work and and would...  more »
  • This is an important stop to learn more about our country. The rangers where very professional and accommodating to insure all could share in the experience.  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.
