Bull Elk Park, Trail 076 Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Bull Elk Park is uniquely situated in the northern Bighorn Mountains. Dominated by Idaho fescue and bluebunch wheatgrass, Bull Elk Park is a disjunct of Palouse Prairie far more representative of the eastern Washington grasslands. The Bull Elk Park area was recognized by the Forest Service as a Research Natural Area in 1952. As such, livestock grazing is not allowed here. The hike can be a day-hike destination, or it makes for a pleasant backpacking trip.

The initial leg of this hike follows a closed jeep trail down the ridgetop, eventually reaching the vast meadows of Bull Elk Park. Beyond this, the trail is difficult to locate, although adventurers might take joy in pushing onward to reach the
bottom of Dry Fork of the Little Bighorn River after an insanely steep pitch."
