As you walk the windswept, winding path to this (pre)historic landmark, which has been a cultural and spiritual site for Native Americans for thousands of years, you have to approach it with the idea that you're not about to see the 8th Wonder of the...More

It is a unique monument to faith and wonder; the colorful strips of cloth flutter in the breeze, and wildflowers bloom in the mountain sunshine during the summer months. It has a feeling, this place---it is spiritual and primal. Visit it and see what your...More

I love that this is a National Historic Landmark that is still used by Native Americans. The walk up is a bit trying, but worth it. And the view is amazing.

Medicine Wheel was the high point of our trip, what an incredible spiritual place and experience. The ancient (600 years +) Native American Sacred site is 3 miles on gravel road from the main road and approximately 10,000 feet in elevation. Bring good walking shoes,...More

If you're interested in Native American culture or simply want to experience beautiful panoramic view of Bighorn Basin, this is worth a stop. The Native American ranger who greeted us was very friendly and was willing to answer any questions about the prehistoric site. Despite...More
