Horse Butte Peninsula is located in the Custer Gallatin National Forest just 20 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. This trail takes you to several day use points along the shoreline of Hebgen Lake. This is a popular place for people on kayaks and stand-up paddleboards as well as fishing. The road is very easy, and the views are gorgeous. If you are lucky, you will be able to see ducks, geese, pelicans, and cranes. Also, bald eagles and ospreys frequent the area.
