Fantastic trial! Also saw 4 snakes, rate the snakes as 10/10 they didn't bite us and were very polite. (Keep a lookout!) So great we did this hike twice in the short time we were in RRG.

Park at the Bison Way Trailhead,
About 100 yards along the trail, the trail splits, take the right path. From there, you'll cross 4 streams, after the fourth (about a mile in) you'll come across trail markings (turtle and diamond), if you wish to climb the indian staircase take the right there on what is a well beaten path, but not an official trail.
