The National Bison Range
The Bison Range is a National Wildlife Refuge rather than a park. People are invited to travel the designated roads and trails but the balance is reserved for wildlife.
The 19-mile Red Sleep Mountain Drive climbs 2,000 feet through four habitat types and offers many scenic vistas. It is a one way gravel road and some tight turns and steep downgrades. Caution no guardrails.
Drought resistant native bunch grasses provide forage for bison and other grazers, including deer, elk and pronghorn antelope.
The river bottom woodlands of Black Cottonwood and Rocky Mountain Juniper are sub-irrigated by the stream.
