The preserve was very quiet when we were there; we were the only visitors. We had a fabulous walk through the preserve, took about 2 and a half hours though it can be done quicker. We were all struck by how healthy the animals appeared...there were many bison and mule deer, the moose were few and distant, lots of mountain goat and thinhorn sheep. A very well run preserve!

A great setting to take a walk and view wildlife of the north. Staff were friendly and informative. We saw a cool looking building that is for taking care of animals but we could not get inside.

Very informative and great to see wildlife you probably wouldn't see if left to your own devices. You can walk, ski or bus around - so everyone is catered for.

I love to walk around and see the animals. Especially in June when you can see all the babies
