Description

The Mountain Creek Triangle Trail is a cutoff trail for those running the Mountain Creek Trail down from Eagle Pass and planning to head south on the Thorofare Trail. It cuts a half-mile off taking the Mountain Creek Trail to its end.

The Triangle Trail turns south from the Mountain Creek Trail and immediately crosses Mountain Creek. The trail continues on the south side of the creek for another 1.5 miles passing the northern terminus of the Trident and ends at its junction with the Thorofare Trail. From there it’s another 6 miles or so to the Thorofare Ranger Station near Yellowstone’s southern boundary.

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