This hike begins at an elevation of 8,820 feet. The trail begins beside a fenced horse pasture and is often muddy, but it soon climbs up onto a bench. Moose are common. So are bears. The trail climbs generally to the north or northeast up the slopes of Angle Mountain, affording some good views of the Breccia Cliffs, the Tetons, and the gentle country to the south. Highlights: Intimate and sublime views of the Breccia Cliffs. Holmes Cave is among the most interesting landforms (limestone-karst topography) in the Yellowstone ecosystem.
