Starting off the South Fork Shoshone River Road (Wyoming Highway 291) southwest of Cody, the trail goes west up the deep, rugged mountain valley of boisterous Ishawooa Creek, past two fine waterfalls, to Ishawooa Pass at 17 miles. Descend southwest along Pass Creek to a junction at Thorofare Creek, then turn east and ascend along Butte Creek to Deer Creek Pass next to the impressive ramparts of Kingfisher Mountain. Continue east another 10 miles beside Deer Creek back to the road. The loop is long and rugged, but well worth it for hardy backpackers. Be prepared to encounter grizzly bears almost anywhere along this trail.
