The gravel trail was smooth, but if you are on a MTB, be sure to slime the tires: thorns can be treacherous. As you approach the Iron Bridge Trailhead, you may have a chance to see bison.

Very nice gravel trail. Some spots fairly uneven but not a problem. Great place for a morning ride. Shade is pretty sparse.

Great trail. there was no one on it when I was. Led to the Buffalo look out trail where we were able to see them.

We took a troop of Scouts on a bike hike. The gravel trail was smooth, but be sure to slime the tires: thorns can be treacherous. As you approach the Iron Bridge Trailhead, you may have a chance to see bison.
