We have never been in this part of ND and totally were amazed by the beauty. I was a site to see at both sunrise and sunset.

This is the last overlook after 24 miles of driving before you have to turn around on the former “Scenic Loop” road. There is a small parking area and great views of the vista. Just remember to be courteous. We wanted just a minute to take in the views, wind and everything nature had to offer but a man had to tell other travelers (loudly) of all the places he has been. So, we enjoyed the views but the company not so much. We quickly left and headed back.

Great views. This loop drive has gorgeous scenery, plenty of places to picnic, a beautiful view of the Little Missouri River, and if you go early plenty of wildlife. We saw horses, prairie dogs, and bison. A restroom is available at the Visitors Center and it had plenty of parking. Highly recommend if in the area .

As I looked at the beauty of the terrain, I found myself wondering, "What did the pioneers think when they saw this?" The breathtaking views also remind you of the dangers of the Badlands. The Badlands were named appropriately. This overlook has clean bathrooms, lots of room for photo opportunities and picnic tables. It was incredibly windy the day we stopped so we didn't stay long. It is worth the stop before you go into the south unit of Teddy Roosevelt National Park.

Great place to stop and have a picnic lunch with a view! Clean bathrooms at the visitors center and a very large parking lot.
