A long loop requiring a boat to get to the trailhead. This hike is like no other in Yellowstone. It combines the pleasures of paddling the shoreline of Yellowstone Lake with some of the best backpacking in the park. It skips the heavily used sections of trails near the highways by taking a 20-mile paddle across Yellowstone Lake, which leaves 40 miles of remote and scenic hiking. A ranger stays at Trail Creek Cabin for most of the summer, so this is a good place to safely store your canoe or kayak. Special attraction: Remoteness.
