Buffalo Plateau Trail is a 18.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October.
We were looking for an out-of-the-way trail, and this was it. We came across about 5 other people on our way, and 4 of them were park employees. We had to move off the trail multiple times for single buffalo or herds. We didn't do the full loop - just settled for an out-and-back, about 7 or 8 miles total.
