We saw 6 deer and a bald eagle, heron, finches, pelicans, turtles and 2 bison.  Nice variety of trails (gravel, straight, winding, dirt, grass, prarie).  Would love to go back in the spring when things are growing and green.  (it was a little muddy on the Lady Bird Trail since it had just rained a day ago).  My hiking partner for the day had done a stretch on the Pacific Crest Trail and she thought the trails here at Armand were really nice.
