Try this Cliffside walk for a closer look at Scotts BluffThe trail on your right gradually descends the steep slopes of Scotts Bluff to Scotts Spring and the Visitor Center. Eroding layers of sandstone, siltstone, and volcanic ash are exposed along the way, and you'll see some intriguing geologic features at close range.The Saddle Rock Trail is about 1.6 miles (2.6 km) long, and the one-way trip down takes about an hour. To avoid a long walk back, you can arrange to have a companion pick you up at the Visitor Center.For your safety, please stay on the hard-surfaced trail. Steep drop-offs and loose rocks make dangerous footing. Please do not throw or roll rocks, since this accelerates erosion and may injure hikers below.
