Rock Creek Streamside Trail Main Fork of Rock Creek Professional Review and Guide

"The Rock Creek Streamside Trail follows an unpaved forested road along the cascading whitewater of Rock Creek, the largest tributary of the Clarks Fork River.

The road (closed to vehicles) begins in the Lake Fork Canyon and parallels Rock Creek upstream along the base of Black Pyramid Mountain. The creek is easily accessible from the soft, needle-covered road. The trail ends on the Hellroaring Plateau Road near the Greenough and Limber Pine Campgrounds."

This trail is out Northwest of Yellowstone on the Beartooth Highway. This is a breathtaking area and much less crowded than inside the park. There was no one on the trail and we saw deer and elk drinking from the lakes. Also because its a national forest our little dog could come too. Hikers should know that when we went at the end of august it was jacket weather and very windy. Also, the trail was difficult to follow for the majority of the trip probably due to lack of use. The four lakes are beautiful and help to keep you making a loop back to the trailhead. This hike has the potential to be an overnighter because it branchesoff from a much longer trail that from the looks of it is frequented by horseback riders. All in all best hike I've been on in the Yellowstone area as far as scenery and privacy.
