Trapper Bay Road is a short trail that takes you through a somewhat gloomy-looking woods to a couple of excellent campsites and a great beach/picnic area. The road might require 4X4 with a good clearance since this is a "primitive" road, especially after rains. The views of the lake and the campsites are definitely worth the drive! Make sure to walk south along the shoreline to Trapper Creek. Several logs have been placed to create a couple of beautiful cascading waterfalls. Trapper Bay Road is located in the Custer Gallatin National Forest just 45 minutes west of West Yellowstone and the west entrance to 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.
