Flat, pretty, plenty of wildlife for so close to the city - a few bison, a ferret in the display area, waterfowl that aren't native to the area, and dozens of chirruping prairie dogs. They area is currently in a controlled burn program, so many of the fields are black, one still smoking, and a few where the green sprouts are pushing up past the char ... very striking. No pets! When I walked it on Saturday just after noon, there were few other hikers, so I'm not sure about the "heavily trafficked" description. There are quite a variety of trails, so you can do a very short or a very long hike. I hiked the outer loop and then went off trail and made a two hour hike of it.
