North Dakota has many beautiful hikes through the trees all across the state. They definitely prove the stereotype that this state is treeless wrong! In fact, not only does North Dakota have plenty of trees and forests, it also has one of the largest petrified forests in the entire country. Luckily for us there is a hiking trail right through it that will take you on a journey to see these prehistoric trees from millions of years ago. It is one of the most unique trails in the entire state, and you’ll want to experience it.

The Petrified Forest Loop is located in the South Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park near Medora, North Dakota. For more information on the trail and other trails in the park, click here.
