Though North Dakota is primarily wide open prairies, there are spots in the state with the kind of rugged terrain you’d expect in places like Arizona. These rough buttes and valleys create our own Grand Canyon of sorts. Luckily, there is a hike through it that is the perfect way to experience it. Here’s why you’ll want to take it:

The Wind Canyon Trail can be reached in the South Unit of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, located near Medora, North Dakota. The trailhead is located off of the scenic road that winds through the park starting at the entrance.

For more information, go to the official trail guide for the park.

Too easy for you? There is another trail through this same area that is only for the toughest and bravest that are willing to take it on. Check it out here!
