Need to Know
You are not required to check in at the visitor center, but it is advisable to obtain current trail conditions and/or closures before heading out.
From Late March through April, controlled burns may be scheduled and some trails will be closed during burning operations. In addition, from April through July, you may encounter cattle in all pastures except Windmill. While these steers (not bulls) can be quite curious, they are not dangerous and pose no threat to hikers. Wherever you encounter a cattle guard, look for a gate off to the side for you to use. Please ensure that the gates are closed behind you.
Most trail junctions are marked with hunks of stone with a marbled map on top. Very helpful!
Restrooms and maps are available 24/7 at the visitor center.
After significant rainfall, expect a couple minor creek crossings.
This recording of the Davis Trail starts at the lower school house, following the Schoolhouse Spur for 0.3 miles. Take a right at the junction to follow Davis. This will lead you north to bison handling corrals, where you can go through the gate (make sure to close behind you), stay to the right and continue on the doubletrack/ jeep road across the creek. The trail continues up and over a rise, and down into a very picturesque valley. Several trail junctions with the Prairie Fire Loop
and Gas House Cutoff
