This Secluded Petrified Forest In North Dakota Is So Worthy Of An Adventure

North Dakota is, in and of itself, a pretty secluded place. It’s the 47th-most populated state and, with less than one million residents, just about anywhere you go can be considered “remote” by someone. Well, even the most remote states have their “extra-remote” regions, and North Dakota is no different. Tucked within the beautiful Theodore Roosevelt National Park, way down in the South Unit of the park, is a strange and unique place unlike most you’ll ever experience in this world. When it comes to secluded places in North Dakota, this one might just take the cake – or the forest, anyway – for the most off-the-beaten-path spots in the state.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

For more information about the hike, the park, and everything you’ll need to plan your adventure, make sure to check out the official US National Park Service website. You can also get more details about the trail itself on its official AllTrails page.
