Hell Roaring Creek Trail

Hell Roaring Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Hell Roaring Creek Trail, in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness, parallels Hell Roaring Creek past a continuous display of rushing, tumbling whitewater with small waterfalls, cascades and pools. The trail climbs a ridge, then crosses Hell Roaring Creek one mile from the trailhead. The Hell Roaring Creek Trail accesses a network of other trails in the Spanish Peaks.

From the north end of the parking area, the trail heads southwest, entering the forest. A series of switchbacks lead 0.6 miles to a ridge. On the way up is a junction. At the junction take the hairpin switchback curving left. Once over the ridge, the trail gradually descends to Hell Roaring Creek. Cross the log bridge over the creek and head to the left up canyon."

This trail is a fairly easy trail from the trailhead down to the Yellowstone river, from the YNP side. From there it climbs uphill to the National Forest Boundary. It wasn't real popular when we rode it which was nice. It isn't a trail I would put at the top of my most wanted to do trails but if you want to be away from the crowd it is a nice hike. I do not remember if after leaving the Yellowstone River there is much water available.
