Saddle Rock Trail  Sucess!

Roughly forty minutes up the paved path. I enjoyed the tunnel as well as the northern and western overlooks.

Twice  Sucess!

Hiked the Saddle Rock Trail twice since moving to the area. There is a cell phone tour available about the history and geology of the monument. Beautiful views from the top.

There's a lot to see in this little corner of the plains.

Saddle Rock Trail  Sucess!

I took the saddle rock trail to the top, while it was a little too hazy and cloudy for the views, the bluff was still a neat historic place to visit.

LOONG time ago...  Sucess!

I did this short hike several times as a kid. I never thought this would be a summit post to sign until I saw it on another person's profile! I haven't been there in my adult life, though I'd love to someday.

Saddle Rock Trail  Sucess!

Windy, but a nice run after work while rotating up from Denver. Just don't tell anyone I left early!

A Great Day for Friends  Sucess!

It was three hours of fun for Jeff, Janie, Hope & Tom sightseeing, hiking, and taking photos. Despite being November, the temps were very mild. The Saddle Rock Trail is clearly marked and well-maintained. The view from the top is great! There is also a great visitors center at the trailhead.

From summit parking lot  Sucess!

This was my second time up here. My wife has never been here so we decided to stop on our way home. Temperatures were very comfortable in the 70's. Strange for November in Nebraska.

Saddle Rock Trail  Sucess!

Great view from this historic butte on the Oregon Trail. If your travels take you within 50 miles of this area, it is worth the stop and short hike to the summit.

Western Nebraska  Sucess!

I actually like western Nebraska quite a bit. There are a lot of interesting little things to see and do.

I, too, have hiked around this area numerous times. The summit is pretty cool, and it provides an excellent view in all directions--it's a great view of the Great Plains! A good way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
