The Hellroaring Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A trip starting inside Yellowstone National Park, hiking through the open terrain of northern Yellowstone and into the lush upper Hellroaring country in the Absaroka- Beartooth Wilderness in Gallatin National Forest. This is not the most spectacular hike in this book, but it offers some special features not found on most other backpacking vacations. The hike penetrates the uncrowded remoteness of the southern Absaroka Mountains.

Such privacy is rare in today’s popular hiking areas—even though about half the trip lies within famous Yellowstone Park. It’s one of the many park trails, with the exception of the first 2 miles, that receives very little use. Also, expect to see large wildlife—elk, moose, bison, antelope, wolves, and bears, including the mighty grizzly."

Fun trail, started at Black Tail creek and worked back to the Hellroaring trail head. Not to strenuous of a hike goes through rolling hills and rocky mountains while following the Yellowstone River and Hellroaring Creek. I think this is one of the only areas in the park that is dry and in good condition for hiking in early June.
