Notes
You can’t help but feel the awesome drama that must play out in this wide valley between predators and prey. We didn’t see any of it—in fact, my only Yellowstone experience without an ungulate sighting (save very dead ones…).

Some guides have this trail becoming accessible in July, but with light snow pack this year, the valley was dry.

 Final Word
An accessible, flat cross country skiing trail in the winter, and a mile of spring creek to glass the rest of the year.
