A multi-day backpacking adventure into one of the most remote and beautiful sections of Yellowstone, including a pass over the Continental Divide. Shuttle required. Drive east of Old Faithful, 3.5 miles, and park at the Lone Star Trailhead (OK1). Leave a vehicle or arrange to be picked up at the Bechler River Ranger Station in the far southwestern corner of the park. You can reach the ranger station by two routes. The rough, scenic route goes from Flagg Ranch just south of the park on the Ashton-Flagg Road, past Grassy Lake Reservoir. Watch for signs for a signed junction where you turn right (north) to the Cave Falls Road and right (east) again when you reach the Cave Falls Road.
