Description

A singletrack dirt trail. The main attraction of this trail is that you can use it to connect to the Lower Talkington Trail and Lower Paddock Creek Trail or the Lower Talkington Trail and Upper Paddock Creek Trail to hike large loops in the park.

There is no separate parking area to access this trail although one could access it from the paved park road. It does have some beautiful badlands vistas that not many park visitors see.

Flora & Fauna

Wildflowers, bison, and wild horses.
