This hike is one of extraordinary beauty and scant use. Few people head up the South Fork of the Yellowstone toward the Continental Divide. If you like rugged mountain scenery, you should become one of those few. Continue up the Yellowstone River from the unsigned junction with Woodard Canyon Trail at 4.5 miles. The trail passes mighty walls of convoluted volcanic rock and good views of Younts Peak before crossing over the Continental Divide and ending in the country immediately beneath Marston Pass. Highlights: Some of the most spectacular scenery in the contiguous 48 states; isolation; wildlife.
