Scenic View/Photo Spot

In this area, most of the badlands formations have eroded away, and the underlying Cretaceous sediments are more suitable for soil development for the grasslands. Trails are visible throughout this area, but they are not developed or maintained by the park. These are game trails made by bison. You are free to explore the area using these trails, but please maintain good safety practices if bison are in the area.
