The Wildlife Loop Road is a picturesque 18 mile drive through open grasslands and pine-covered hills. Much of the park's wildlife can be spotted here, including bison, pronghorn, whitetail and mule deer, elk, coyotes, prairie dogs, eagles, hawks and a variety of other birds. Abundant wildflowers and prairie grasses add to the beauty of the area.

I really enjoyed the beautiful drive through the rolling grasslands and scenic hills of this wonderful state park. Take your time and you will likely see lots of amazing wildlife along the way.
