Elk tours

From July through September, during the rut when males are attempting to round up harems of females, visitors benefit from the presence of park volunteers who can point out elk activity and answer questions about this special species. Binoculars and spotting scopes are also available so visitors can better view the elk while keeping a safe distance.
