Description

Start from the parking lot along the Park paved road and head Northeast. The trail follows Jones Creek and while there is varied terrain crossing dry water courses, this route is not very rugged. The trail intersects with the Roundup Trail and the Lower Talkington Trail providing opportunities for varied out-and-backs or loops (see Jones/Lower Talkington/Lower Paddock Loop).

Flora & Fauna

Wild horses, bison, and wildflowers.
