Crazy Woman Canyon

There are many legends regarding the naming of Crazy Woman Canyon. One involves a white woman while another a Native American woman. Crazy Woman Creek originates in the Hazelton Peak area of the Big Horn Mountains and becomes a tributary of Powder River. The canyon is a beautiful drive with sheer rock walls on both sides closely following the creek. During the summer, many species of wildflowers are in bloom. It started out as a stock trail before a CCC camp stationed there in the 1930s dynamited the canyon to create the wider road.
