This trip begins at the Bechler Ranger Station in the southwest corner of Yellowstone National Park. After a few fun river crossings on Boundary Creek, we’ll find our campsite on the edge of the Bechler meadow. It’s a quaint camp spot with a peaceful view of the horses grazing in the meadow. Fishing in the Bechler River is just a short walk from camp. Riding time: Approx. 3 & 1/2 hours.
Our day ride will take us 7 miles up the Bechler river to our destination - the hot pots at Three Rivers junction. After lunch, it’s just a half-mile walk for a nice hot soak. The ride home follows the same trail and arrives back at camp for a hardy dutch oven meal. A day you will never forget! Riding time: All day.
We’ll return to the ranger station by way of the Bechler River Trail, crossing at Rocky Ford. We’ll picnic along the Fall River, pass through quiet meadows, ride a narrow trail where the sunlight slants through the lodge pole forest.
Riding time: 3 & 1/2 hours.
