Black Canyon of the Yellowstone Professional Review and Guide
"This classic downhill hike is an early- and lateseason favorite of park employees, since the campsites are snow-free as soon as early May and as late as October. It’s just far enough away from the road to start feeling like you’re in the wilderness, and is a prime route for fishing and wildlife watching.The trail is typically dry enough for hiking by mid-May. The ford of Hellroaring Creek, however, can be waist-deep and tricky as late as August during years. of high runoff. Ticks are a nuisance in spring and early summer. The route is hot at midday in summer."
