Trail Overview

This trail winds along dirt roads headed to the remote corner of Yellowstone. But just before you reach the park is a trail that leads to a lesser-known gem. The first part of the trail is pretty easy and is just a gravel road. After turning off it becomes increasingly narrow and more complex as it heads downhill. There are several rocky points that can be a bit tricky. The trail also gets narrow enough that if you take a full-size vehicle, you should expect to get some scratches from the brush sticking out into the trail.

Difficulty

I'm choosing a rating of 4 due to some of the rocky sections being quite tricky and steep. The road also being very narrow with few places to pass.
