Herds of elk and buffalo are undoubtedly an uncommon occurrence in St. Louis County, yet a trip to Lone Elk County Park can offer wildlife lovers sightings of both. The White Bison Trail presents wildlife viewing opportunities rarely seen in this part of the country. Lone Elk County Park, an interesting park with a peculiar past, makes a memorable day trip for hikers in and around St. Louis. Today hikers in Lone Elk County Park can expect to see elk, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, waterfowl, and bison. The forest is a typical Missouri hardwood mix, full of oaks and hickories. Visitors who want to extend their trip can visit the World Bird Sanctuary to see bald eagles, hawks, owls, and more.
