This trail starts near the Chadron State Park cabins just off Highway 385. It is a popular choice with families as it offers reasonable easy walking and starts near the park's visitor center. Pick up a map from the park office to show where Norwesca Trail links with other parks and trails through the forest.
If you are up for more of a challenge, this trail offers a 400 foot change in altitude along the 4 mile long trail. Start at the Overlook point and enjoy impressive views over the canyons and forests as you progress along the trail.
Although this trail is only a 1.4 mile loop, it connects with several other trails which can extend the walk considerably. A popular excursion is to climb to the top of Steamboat Butte, or take the opportunity to explore the nearby canyons.
