From there, enjoy a gradual descent over the next 1.5 miles, crossing FR 106 and passing a cemetery along the way. Continue on the Little Missouri Trail, toward a wet river crossing of the Little Missouri River at mile 3.6. At the junction of Raven Branch and Little Missouri trails, drop your pack and take in picturesque views of emerald pools and towering rock formations before returning to the trailhead.
