Scenic Viewpoint
“Few views in the lower 48 surpass the panorama of the Mission Mountains on a clear day, as seen from the National Bison Range. And that’s just to start: the amazing visitor center and abundant wildlife (bison, of course, but also antelope and elk and coyotes and the occasional black bear) alone are worth the trip!”

“ Good trail for running/walking with interpretive signs. It's a short walk to a nice sandy beach for swimming or putting in for a float. Also a great meadow for finding bugs and birdwatching. Just watch out for the mosquitoes, bug spray is a MUST. Trail to the river may be flooded in spring/early summer. Has pit toilets/outhouses.”
