“Best way to view if short on time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We got to hit all the popular sites and saw lots of animals;bear, deer, bison, long horn sheep, elk. Went on a Saturday in early May so the traffic wasn't too bad. If you see cars stopped on the side, make a stop also, they have spotted some wild life.

“Lots of great views.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Saw lots of bison, elk (mammoth) and even got to see an alpha female feed odd of her morning kill. Rangers were great in giving info of where she was at and encouraging us to wait for her return...which she did return. Even without wildlife, it's a wonderful drive.

“Wildlife!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Taking this drive is like being in Jurassic Park. I cannot believe it took us this long to go here. I still dream about it almost every night! Don't try stalking the Bison--you'll get hurt.

“Interesting and varied”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We walked this loop- against the traffic flow. Didn't see anyone else walking! It is an interesting loop with lots of different landscape features. Well worth a look.
