This 5.8 mile trail follows the Little Missouri River bottom southwesterly from CCC Campground, then climbs the Long X divide generally following the original route of the early era cattle drives. As you break out of the trees, at different points throughout the climb, there are breath-taking vistas of the badlands and Little Missouri River. Follow the trail through the flat grasslands to connect with the Maah Daah Hey and loop back to CCC Campground (approx. 5 miles).
