This area is known to have wild elk grazing from time to time. Upon our visit, some wild elk were grazing at the recreation area just south of the dam; however, we did not drive down the road to see them. The slopes of the back of the dike provide plenty of food for deer and elk, so you may find some wildlife just by walking this short and easy trail.
