See Yellowstone’s Lower Loop up close and personal with our professionally guided all-day tour!
The Hellroaring Creek Trail descends a series of switchbacks, dropping about 600 feet in a mile through lush lodgepole pine forest and sagebrush to a 220 ft long suspension bridge that crosses the Black Canyon of the Yellowstone River. You can feel the sway and stretch of the bridge’s steel cables and beams. The bridge is extremely safe.
The view looking into the gorge from the bridge will have you thinking you are on a movie set. Continuing for another mile, we will hike through the Enchanted Forest before reaching Hellroaring Creek. It is a great place to soak your feet, eat lunch, and watch for osprey hovering in the air, scanning the creek for fresh trout. After a break, we will hike back to the trailhead to contemplate our next hike.
