Located 45 miles west of Cody, or 9.25 miles east of Yellowstone National Park's east entrance, inside the northwestern fringes of the Washakie Wilderness. An overnighter into an isolated, high-meadow valley. It gets you up and into the alpine country fast. The Kitty Creek Trail serves as an easier introduction to the amazing northwest corner of the Washakie Wilderness. Note on maps that Kitty Creek lies as a higher and shorter drainage tucked between 2 huge valleys. Eagle Creek to the west and Fishhawk Creek to the east afford much longer and more detailed journeys into this wild Absaroka country. Also note that Kitty Creek is the only drainage of the 3 that doesn’t require fording a river at its beginning.
