We trekked up to the Medicine Wheel on June 21, the summer solstice. Wow! What a gorgeous vista. You feel like you are on top of the world here. No wonder early peoples used this site to discern time and seasons. The arrangement of rocks is a wonder---and the prayer bundles remind us that this is yet another sacred place.... More

My wife and I attempted to walk to Medicine wheel earlier this week. We drove to the top and walked until the path turned to snow. There was at least 10' plus covering the path and on the only way over was to take the path over the snow covered path. I started and was about 3/4 way across when... More

Be prepared to park your car and walk 1 1/2 miles UP a hill to get to the medicine wheel. It is worth it but a long hard climb and very windy. Then 1 1/2 miles back to the car.

I first learned about this medicine wheel 25 years ago in university and have wanted to visit it ever since. There are many medicine wheels and cairns scattered across the plains but mostly in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. This one is the most well known and well preserved. The walk up to the wheel will take 25-30 minutes if you... More

It is a 3 mile (5km) round trip walk on a gravel road (think forest service road). It is by no means difficult, however the altitude, almost 10,000ft (3048m) is what makes it a challenge for all the "flat landers". Take your time, soak in the beautiful view, take a rest on one of the benches along the way. It... More

I've seen stone circles all over England, Scotland, Ireland, and this just tops them off! It is truly an interesting thing to see and ponder the minds of the ancients and think "what were they thinking" and to top it off with such a beautiful place! The views going up Medicine Mountain are worth it alone, but the Medicine Wheel... More

The Native American Medicine Wheel National Historic Landmark is a beautiful spot on top of a mountain in the Bighorn Mountain Range. It's approximately 10,000 feet in elevation and you do have to hike the last mile maybe. The scenery is gorgeous on the hike and when you get to the wheel. The rangers who were working on July 28th... More

This place was awesome! Had to park and walk 1.5 miles to get to it but seeing it was worth every step. High elevation. .nearly 10,000 feet. Young ranger interpreter was very knowledgeable of the Wheel. Restrooms were spotless. Handicap are allowed to drive up to the wheel.

There are no words to describe the energy and feelings that are to be found at the Medicine Wheel. It is not a place to be taken lightly but a place to go to feel the spiritual energy for all those that have been there for many, many years. If you are an energy sensitive person you will be amazed... More
