North Achenbach Trail and the Caprock Coulee Extension
Recommended route: 5.5 miles one-way (requires hitchhiking). Otherwise, it is 11.0 miles round-trip.
Total elevation gain of 883 feet.
Located in the North Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, so a National Park Pass or day-pass is required.
We recommend parking at the Oxbow Overlook or the Caprock Coulee Trailhead.
Here’s a map of the route we took along the North Achenbach trail with the additional Caprock Coulee extension.
In order to hike this route only one-way, like we did, you’ll need to hitchhike. We parked at the Oxbow Overlook and requested a ride to the Caprock Coulee trailhead. We found it fairly easy to get a ride here!
