We saw 20+ mountain goats, antelopes and bisons on the way. Easy hiking. Breath taking view.

A wonderful alternative to experiencing the canyon rim without the crowds. When I went, I only saw 4 other people- but this may be due to it being later in the afternoon, and a storm approaching. Walking back to parking lot along the street is not enjoyable. A badger ran across the trail right in front of me while traversing the meadow!
