This is a long and delightful hike up a marvelous and extremely scenic wilderness valley. Glistening Absaroka peaks, deep, impenetrable lava gorges, and lush riparian meadows delight the eye. Fine camping opportunities and a well-maintained trail make this an excellent choice for the Washakie Wilderness beginner. You can walk as far as you want and return whenever you desire. You make eight fords, including only three of the South Fork, which is not bad considering the distance of the trail. Highlights: A beautiful hike up a magnificent wilderness river.
