Added by Christina Michniak

No trip to Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area is complete without a visit to the Devil Canyon Overlook! Devil's Canyon Overlook offers beautiful views right from the parking lot and with a little effort you can explore the canyon ridges to get even better views of the canyon walls and river below.

Devil's Canyon Overlook is a breathtaking area in Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area located in Montana and Wyoming. Devil's Canyon Overlook is located in Montana about 3 miles north of the Montana, Wyoming border off HWY 37. The overlook is easily accessed from well-marked, paved roads with beautiful views. If you are coming from Wyoming you would take HWY 37 north then turn right onto Canyon Overlook Rd. This will take you directly to the parking lot at the overlook. From the parking lot, the overlook provides breathtaking views of the confluence of the Bighorn and Devil Canyons narrow, winding, colorful canyon cliffs that tower 1,000 feet above the lake level. With a little effort you can explore the surrounding area, and keep your eye out for wild horses, bighorn sheep and mountain goats that wander on the canyon walls.
