wild bison and grizz
Overview: One of two short trails along Red Sleep Mountain Drive (the large loop) in the National Bison Range. These two trail are the only two spots where you are allowed to hike along the loop drive.
Hike: The trail starts on the right (south) side of the road and is well signed. There is room for several vehicles to park along the right side of the road. The trail is wide and in excellent condition as it heads southwest from the road.
You'll initially walk up a gentle uphill grade before turning left and dropping slightly downhill. Views are excellent as you look across the hills below you and out across the valley. Keep an eye out for wildlife along the edges of the trees, we saw numerous deer in the area, and many visitors have reported grizzlies in the area.
The trail gets a little rocky as you reach the viewpoint at the end of it. Scan the hillsides below you for bison and other wildlife. After enjoying the views, retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
Warning: This is a wildlife refuge; stay alert for animals, and do not approach any along the trail.
