Trail Overview

This is a fun Forest Service Road that will take you up Fish Creek Road where you will turn onto Chick Creek Road up to almost 8,000 feet with spectacular views of the area to the west of Yellowstone Park. You will then descend back down to the valley and end at a fabulous spring and the Buffalo RIver. While here you can wade in the river but watch for animals in this area as the meadow behind the parking area is full of food for them.
