Named after a pioneering Yellowstone outfitter and guide, this short downhill section of Yellowstone’s longest trail (much of which is no longer maintained since it parallels the Grand Loop Road) traverses a wide variety of scenic terrain from the Golden Gate to Mammoth Hot Springs. The trail is hikable from May through October: Some exposed stretches make early morning and late afternoon the most pleasant times to hike here. The Hoodoos were named for their ghostly appearance but bear little resemblance to the park's other natural rock pinnacles, which are more classical examples of the form.
