      This is a picturesque side trip from the main Highway 240 Loop Road and one that provides spectacular long distance views of the park's amazing geology. There are a number of overlooks along the way, each offering different views, from sheer, jagged rocks formations to wide panoramas taking in rich green grassland.

      If you go:
      This is also the best place in the park to view wildlife. Bison will often make an appearance on the road itself; look carefully at the rocky crags below and you're likely to spot bighorn sheep.
