Lovell - Bighorn Medicine Wheel

Bighorn National Forest Highway 14A

The Bighorn wheel is part of a much larger complex of interrelated archeological sites that represent 7000 years of Native American adaptation to and use of the alpine landscape that surrounds Medicine Mountain.

It's a place you must make a pilgrimage to at least once in your life. The magic is strong here. This is a very rare and wonderful place.

A long hike uphill in both directions but definitely worth it. The view from the top is amazing. Manned daily by Park rangers. Etiquette is whisper quietly when viewing the ancient rock wheel. Very spiritual feel.

Enjoyed the experience SO much, long walk up hill both ways !! The view was SO amazing -felt like we were on too of the world! Very much worth the trip if you're in the area. We also saw our first moose!

Didn't make it to see the medicine wheel because it was closed due to snow, but the drive there was spectacular. Ecstatic to go back and get to see it in the summer.

This is truly an amazing place. Because of snow, it is reliably accessible only from about July 1-Sept 1, though dates may vary. It's an easy walk (about a mile) up from the parking lot which ism in turn, a mile or so up a steep gravel road. Sadly, many of the photos that show up when you do a google map search are of other medicine wheels, elsewhere. For example, the main image, of huge, complete, perfect stone circle on a green field is somewhere else, as is the picture with red rocks on the background. This medicine wheel is on a high, windy, bald knob off 14ALT between Lovell and Burgess Junction.
