Black Canyon of the Yellowstone

Bozeman, Montana

Black Canyon of the Yellowstone Professional Review and Guide

"The Black Canyon of the Yellowstone is one of the classic backpacking trips of the northern Rockies. It seems to offer everything a hiker might want. It’s downhill all the way on an excellent trail with a wide choice of 4-star or 5-star
campsites. Wildlife is abundant, the fishing is fantastic, and the scenery rivals almost any other hike in the park.

The trail closely follows the mighty Yellowstone River most of
the way. Unlike most other hikes in this book (except those in Glacier National Park), you must stay in designated campsites, and you must have a backcountry camping permit."
