Ran from the hotel to Bear River SP. There were a few miles of paved trails to run on, all of which was along the River. We saw the bison in the park. Ran once in the afternoon and saw others, ran early in the morn and had the park to ourselves.

They have a small herd of bison( they aren't buffalo). They were wondering around and the babies were real cute,regardless of the fact that they are as big as a VW bug. There is also great picnic spots, and wonderful scenery.

If you're traveling along I-80 and need some time to rest this is a beautiful location. Lots of wildlife to see, a river that runs through and there are plenty of walkways, trails, playgrounds and picnic areas and restrooms to take advantage of.

Beautiful afternoon!! This was great little adventure for the nieces and nephews. They got to walk along the river and dip there toes in. The enjoyed seeing the wildlife and had a nice picnic under one of the pavilions. It was the perfect way to spend a relaxing Saturday.

After our Meal at JB's we went to this little board walk with my kids and my dog. The only problem was that the sign for the board walk was a little to small so very easy to miss and to many mosquito.good thing that I had bug repellent and was able to walk the entire board walk.

This State Park is free. It has a wonderful path along the river, connecting to other paths which go on for miles. It has a herd of bison and a pen of elk. There are plenty of bathrooms, picnic tables, and benches.

We just enjoyed a great visit to BRSP. We made a quick trip to through the park and stopped at the visitor center to ask about the Mirror Lake Byway. The lady there was so kind & helpful.
