Mist Creek Pass Trail is a 34 mile lightly trafficked point-to-point trail located near Yellowstone National Park, WY that features a river and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from July until September.
We hiked this route south to north. A beautiful area with little foot traffic on the Southern part of the route. I loved the long wondering meadows that took control of the first day of hiking. Day one is a bit long and a pretty strenuous climb over Mist Creek Pass. After reaching the Lamar Valley we came across numerous horse parties that had effectively destroyed the trails in the wet week we went. Unfortunately we only came across wolf and bear sign and never saw any animals. Not a beginners hike for the back country but absolutely worth the effort.
