The Bobcat Trail is an easy walk at the base of foothills for the first 1.5 miles. This section through open rangeland is very pretty in June with its high-desert wildflowers and views of the South Fork Shoshone Valley, including massive Carter Mountain, which is to the east. Just before you come to the canyon, you enter Bobcat Creek’s broad riparian zone with large cottonwoods, brush, sagebrush, small meadows, and continuing grand views of Carter Mountain. Bobcat is a much bigger stream than Houlihan, and it makes plenty of noise during snowmelt in May, June, and early July. Grizzly bears frequent this streamside zone early in the season; yell loudly so they can hear you over the roar of the stream. Highlights: A pleasant hike up a pretty canyon.
