The Pitchstone Plateau trail is a long, simple hike through High flat country which is rejuvinating from the 1988 Yellowstone fire. Although being surrounded ny dead trees can get erie at times the land does seem to be recovering rather quickly and wildlife is taking advantage of the expanded grazing opportunities. The trail is marked fairly decent although it is possible to lose sight of it if you choose to wonder "off road" for a moment or two. Although there are a few mud pots and other thermaly active spots there is very little fresh water available along the trail so be sure to pack plenty in. This trail, although intriguing, left me feeling a little erie. On the bright side I saw no other people along this trail and the solitude in this often busy park was appreciated.
