Pitchstone Plateau Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the wildest, most-remote, and little-used routes in the park. If you don’t have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, park at the top of the dam and walk down to the trailhead. Many people who have driven a two-wheel-drive to the trailhead parking lot haven’t able to get back up the hill.

This hike traverses some of the greatest scenery in Yellowstone, but it isn’t for beginners. This is a rugged hike, requiring route-finding skills. Take plenty of water— reliable sources are scarce late in the summer."
