Trail Information

Highlights

Tepee Creek Trail is located in the Custer Gallatin National Forest just 10 minutes north of West Yellowstone and outside the boundary of Yellowstone National Park. Custer Gallatin National Forest is known as one of the most ecologically diverse landscapes in the region and covers more than 3.1 million acres. Tepee Creek Trail is located just 30 minutes south of Big Sky and 10 minutes north of West Yellowstone in the Gallatin National Forest, just outside of the Yellowstone National Park border. This trail is an excellent dirt road most of the summer and provides access to hiking trails and amazing views.

This road is always in good shape for a dirt road. There are logging operations along the Tepee/ Skyline Hiking Trail. The crews were off today, so we could not find out if there would be any closures to the hiking trails while they operated- FYI, if you are one of the many that frequent these trails for hiking opportunities. The green grass and wildflowers are beautiful this year.

There has been a lot of logging activity in the last year. Smoke season started a month earlier than usual, not much in the way of distant views lately. It was still a pretty drive, and walking along the creek at the end of the trail is always nice.

Lush green grass and colorful wildflowers, today was a beautiful day on this trail. It had rained briefly earlier today, which eliminated all the dust, and not enough to make anything muddy.

What a great easy to access, easy to drive trail through in the woods with a couple of beautiful creeks to walk around and enjoy! I've been driving past this trail for 15 years, I can't believe I didn't check this one out sooner.
