Lamar River Stock Cutoff Trail is a 1.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October.
The Lamar River Trail, and numerous trails that branch from it, receive a fair amount pack-horse use. This large pullout with restrooms is dedicated for their use as a trailhead. This short, .9-mile trail leaves the trailhead and quickly fords good-sized Soda Butte Creek. It then continues across an open meadow in the middle of the Lamar Valley. This valley is often called the Serengeti of North America. It is not uncommon to see buffalo, elk, grizzly, wolves, and antelope throughout the valley. At the .9-mile mark, the Stock Cutoff Trail joins the main Lamar River Trail.
