As you ascend this paved road you'll pass through thick forests before you break out into the mountain's high meadows. Watch for elk, mule deer, and wild turkey along the way.
Scenic overlooks near the top of the drive provide excellent views of the volcano field which created this mountain stretching off to the west. Now covered by rolling prairies and hardy forests, features of obvious volcanic origin such as Wild Bill Hill share the panorama with more massive features such as Kendrick Peak and the Hochderffer Hills.
