Unless you enjoy wet shoes and socks, is it probably best to bypass the fords on this trail and start from the Fawn Pass Trailhead.
This spur trail primarily used by horse parties starts from the Bacon Rind Trailhead on a small gravel road on the west side of U.S. Highway 191, north of West Yellowstone. It fords more creeks and rivers per mile than any trail in Yellowstone.
From the large parking area, the trail crosses Bacon Rind Creek and then Highway 191. It then fords the Gallatin River just below its confluence with Fan Creek. The trail continues along Fan Creek .3 miles and fords it as well, before joining the main Fawn Pass Trail
at the 1.4-mile mark.
Runners can avoid all these fords by starting at the main Fawn Pass Trailhead.
