A difficult shuttle best suited for a long day trip. If you aren’t a peak bagger, but you’re in good shape and want to see lots of sensational scenery in one long day, consider arranging a shuttle from West Rosebud Trailhead to Phantom Creek Trailhead. Even better, talk some friends into a “trade keys” hike. This hike is a perfect choice for such a plan. One party starts at West Rosebud and the other at East Rosebud (Phantom Creek Trailhead); meet on top of Froze-to-Death Plateau for lunch, then trade keys and drive each other’s vehicle home. The trading keys plan can be risky on long trips where folks want to stop to fish, climb, or partake in other activities that might lead them off the trail.
