Description

The Clagett Butte Trail connects the Snow Pass Trail with the Sepulcher Mountain Trail. It climbs steeply 250 feet up and over Clagett Butte and down the other side. Although it affords some views to the north and east, it follows power lines much of the way and is decidedly unattractive. Most consider it not worth the effort, unless it is needed to connect a loop run.

Clagett Butte was named for Montana Territorial Representative William Clagett who in 1871 introduced a bill in the US House of Representatives to make Yellowstone the world’s first National Park.

Thanks to guidebook author, Tom Carter, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about visiting Yellowstone, check out his book, Day Hiking Yellowstone.
