Easy, scenic trail. If you're staying overnight at the Oster Lake camp, however, be prepared for bison encounters as they tend to congregate here (as evidenced by the droppings you'll find). Give them lots of space, and get in your tent when it gets dark so you don't surprise them. We were kind of stuck in our tent as they were within 10 m of us for a large portion of the night. Cool, but a little nerve wracking. Beautiful stars too.
