Did the hike in 2 days. The first day was awesome great terrain and wildlife. Spent the night at 1r2. Wouldn't recommend 1r1-1r3 if you want to see wildlife. The second day the terrain was differrent than the first with mostly a dry climate not much wildlife but losts of nice views of the yellowstone river. started at Hellroaring trailhead and finished in Gardiner definitley wouldn't do the trip in the opposite direction
The trail wasn't the hardest but the scenerio was amazing. The first day out we walked over a hill and to our surprise there was a bufflo sitting on the other side. We did this trail in mid May and the weather was perfect. It is one of the only trails that you can hike during that time of year if you still want to be in the mountains.
Outstanding trail, beautiful views and abundant wildlife
