Only hiked 3.5 miles in and then back. Such beautiful country. Saw bear tracks and scat, but no bears this time. Many beautiful birds and lots of bison. Encountered very few other hikers.

Certainly a beautiful hike that is quite easy for anyone. We didn't realize that this would be 9 miles of nearly all meadow hiking. We also anticipated at least one bear siting considering its listed as a significant grizzly habitat. Unfortunately we didn't see much more than some beautiful birds. This is a nice family hike.

This was a nice, easy to moderate trail in a very peaceful valley. The washed out Pelican Creek bridge is picturesque and there are some nice hills to sit and enjoy your lunch while watching the valley.
