Shoofly Overlook Professional Review and Guide

"This trail offers both spectacular canyon scenery and the opportunity to observe wildlife. Note the vivid contrast between lush grass growth inside the enclosure and heavily grazed areas outside.

Late-spring wildflower displays along this road are often breathtaking. The road is paved for the first 4 miles and then turns to gravel. It passes several side roads, including, at mile 15.3, the signed Oreana cutoff intersection on the
right (north). You pass the Poison Creek picnic area, also signed."

Tough terrain. Great view. The rocky terrain made for a tough hike, and the uphill track I took (see track) made for great exercise.

not much trail to walk, but the canyon view is worth the trip - we were joined by antelope and sage grouse
