South Shore Roadrunner Loop off Strawberry Trail

Saw him coming from the area where the park's bison normally are. He saw me, sauntered across the road and disappeared in the brush.

Today I hiked along the west portion of Roadrunner Loop which is between 3 - 3 1/2 miles in length.  It is designated as "Hikers Only" and provides a safe, fairly level dirt path for hiking or jogging.  Controlled burns have cleared some of the area encircled by the trail.

Lots of trash laying about and I will get it tomorrow.  Best thing about the hike - I saw a Verdin and a grey fox! 


Water, shade, info kiosk and toilets available at Playground parking lot.

Water and toilets available at the mid-point by the Lake View campground.
