Bison Mountain Peak Path Professional Review and Guide
"Bison Peak is the highest in the Tarryall Range. The name Tarryall is said to have originated when miners found such abundant gold in this area that they believed there was enough for all (Tarry-all). This hike enters the Lost Creek Wilderness, with its fascinating domes and knobs of pink, Pikes Peak granite. Lost Creek gets its name from it habit of disappearing into piles of rock, only to reappear further downstream. Explore the Lost Creek Wilderness with its striking rock formations and herd of bighorn sheep."
