Gooseberry Badlands Scenic Overlook Trail

Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming.

At a turnoff on Wyoming State Highway 431, the visitor is greeted by a panoramic view of colorful desert and endless blue sky at the Gooseberry Badlands Scenic Overlook. The colors of the soil, which mysteriously change with the seasons, accentuate the grotesque and intricately carved rock formations, inviting further exploration along a 1.5 mile interpretive trail. Hikers should bring drinking water. There is no overnight camping. The area is 25 miles west of Worland.
