The scenic space is dotted with swimming holes and its peaks and valleys offer beautiful views. Stop to admire the impressive herd of bison that roam the valley at the Bison Pasture.

The landscape around Sulphur is full of natural treasures. Spend a day exploring Turner Falls Park to the south, where picturesque Honey Creek leads into a set of idyllic natural swimming pools. The park is another great place to go hiking, with scenic trails that wind all over the hillsides.
