Description

This 1.3-mile trail crosses grasslands to connect the Buffalo Gap Campground with the much longer Buffalo Gap Trail. It can be a nice out-and-back hike from the campground or be the base for a multi-day loop hike utilizing the Buffalo Gap Trail and the Maah Daah Hey Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Antelope, mule and white-tailed deer, pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse, wild turkey, grassland birds, and grassland flowers.
