Back roads and by ways criss cross Platte County, and we hope you'll take advantage of that! Map your route on foot, bike or vehicle to include some exploration time; it'll be worth your while. Linger a little in our State Parks...take your time and keep your eyes open! You're likely to see Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles, Turkey Vultures, Pronghorn (Antelope), Mule and Whitetail Deer, Black-tailed Prairie Dogs and Coyotes. You might also see (or hear!) bellowing Elk, and Big Horn Sheep dotting the rocks.
