Trail Overview

Starting from the Medicine Lodge Archeological site this trail goes up the foothills of the Big Horn Mountains to just above Paintrock Canyon using an easy trail and maintained gravel road. The trail then descends into the canyon on a more technical section. At the end of the road walk just a couple hundred feet along the creek and around the corner to find the falls.
