I found the Bighorn Pass trail to be a beautiful escape into the Gallatin range. I saw many elk and bison along the way and although the elk were weary bison seem to show no concern about an approaching human (keep this in mind if there is one on the trail. They generally do not run away like a deer or an elk so give them space). The 1st half of the trail was rather flat but became steep as the actual pass was approached. Great views in either direction open up at this point. The trail follows the Gallatin and Panther rivers closely at points and there are a few sketchy bridges along the way. Otherwise the trail was generally open and free of obstruction.
