Big Bluestem Loop
Wander through tallgrass and mixed-grass prairie where cattle still graze, then hike up narrow drainages thick with vegetation in view of spectacular rock formations. In spring the wildflowers and flowering bushes send sweet-scented fragrances wafting across the air. Fall brings colorful leaves and berries, which bears eagerly eat to fatten up before winter arrives. Devils Thumb and The Maiden poke their heads into the sky as the land rises abruptly from the Mesa Trail.
