Overview

Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: No Dogs

Description

This trail is generally accessed by other trails in the Park. It does intersect the paved Park road, but there is no specific parking area near the trail. Combined with other trails, this is great for an out-and-back or a large loop through the Park (see the Jones/Lower Talkington/Lower Paddock Loop). It goes through a higher elevation area than some of the other trails it connects to, so it provides excellent views of the badlands.

This is a singletrack dirt trail and is not recommended when wet.

Flora & Fauna

Bison, wild horses, wildflowers.
