Hiking Wyoming

This is a popular day hike or easy overnighter providing access to several other one-way hikes and loops.

This interesting day hike is ranger recommended because it traverses some of the lowest elevations in Yellowstone Park. Early season access and completely different plant ecosystems are two of the special features of this hike. The trail is well traveled and seems unimpressive for the first 1.5 miles. Rolling hills topped by bald-looking shortgrass prairies rule the landscape. But then conifers began sneaking into the scenery, and after 2 miles the trail drops into the Blacktail Creek drainage. Here the open forest settings become undeniably fascinating.
