Description

This short trail connects the Bechler Meadows Trail with the Bechler River Trail near the Rocky Ford Bechler River crossing. The trail begins from the Bechler Meadows Trail just south of the Boundary Creek crossing on the southern end of Bechler Meadows. The first half of the trail traverses intermittent meadows.

The second half leaves the meadows and more closely follows the Bechler River along a calm stretch of river. The trail ends at it junction with the Bechler River Trail. To the left, that trail makes a difficult crossing of the Bechler and continues up the Bechler Canyon towards Old Faithful. To the right, it leads along the Bechler 3.8 miles to Cave Falls.

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