A nice hike through forests and meadows A beautiful, easy hike through the forests and large meadows of Yellowstone Natl Park. I planned this hike to include Dunanda and Silver Scarf falls but the area was too large for the program, so the spur trail is listed as a separate hike. This hike was Yellowstone beautiful with deer, elk and sand hill crane sightings. However, the creeks have to be forded, so be prepared with wading shoes and extra socks. Boundary Creek was nearly waist deep. As this trail crosses many large meadows, mosquitoes are also a nuisance.

This was our last day of our 5 days in the Bechler River region of Yellowstone National Park. This was a day of breaking down camp and slowly hiking out along Boundary Creek. What a wonderful hike along Boundary Creek with incredible views of the Teton Range. There is one crossing of the creek along this hike.
