Family hiking right from town!

NEW to Medora's downtown activities is Pancratz Trail! Part of Point to Point Park, this hiking trail is the perfect adventure to get out and explore the Badlands.

A place for families to enjoy the great outdoors and “the strenuous life” together made possible by Linda and Lizza Pancratz.

Trail Details

1.5 miles
728 feet elevation gain

TR's game, Point to Point, is all about going through, under, over -- but never around and Pancratz trail is no different!

This 1.5 mile trail will take you right from the mini-golf course all the way to the top of the butte overlooking town. During that trek you will navigate an easy to moderate trail, take a climb up the butte, and be met by Schafer Point -- the same location Harold Schafer stood when dreaming up a magic Medora. Climbing not your jam, no worries, take the easy way back to town!
