Description

The short cutoff trail connects the Fawn Pass Trail with the Bighorn Pass Trail. This valuable connector trail can be used to make a loop run out of these two important trails.

The cutoff trail leaves the Fawn Pass Trail, travels south through a low gap in the ridge, then drops 400 feet to join the Bighorn Pass Trail near the Gallatin River. On the descent, you get nice views of the Gallatin River drainage, both upstream and down.

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