Park Animals

Horse lovers will enjoy the park. Mountain Meadow Trail Rides is located outside the park, near Mountain View. This family-run farm has been in the Nelson family for over 100 years, and they offer two to four-day, all-inclusive trail rides.

A lot of visitors also forget to stop at the Buffalo Paddock in the park. The Buffalo Paddock is a fenced-off area of prairie grassland that is home to the park’s buffalo herd.
