This loop hike starts at the visitor’s center and loops to the east through the prairie which is east of the building. The trail winds through wide open with views in all directions across the rolling fields. You are likely to see Bison roaming in the prairie a short distance from (or even on) the trail, so check with the park service before you depart to confirm they are in areas where they pose no danger during your hike.
