South Plateau Trail

This can be access from Electric Street right in West Yellowstone. It heads south for 13 miles where is meets the Black Bear Cutoff (to Idaho) or 16.2 miles where is meets the Black Canyon Trail. It provides great views of the area’s mountains, following creeks and rivers away from the crowds. There is an abundance of off-trail riding but make sure that you do not enter Yellowstone Park (the South Plateau Trail skirts the western edge of the Park).
