Description [Suggest Changes]

The Dike Creek Trail splits off to the east from the Mountain Creek Trail. The trail crosses Howell Creek, and follows tiny Dike Creek as it quickly climbs to Yellowstone Park’s eastern boundary. The Yellowstone portion of the trail ends at the boundary. It is possible, however, to continue up and over the ridge and into the Teton Wilderness Area in Bridger-Teton National Forest. There, NFS trails run south to the Open Creek drainage and north to Fishhawk Creek.

Thanks to guidebook author, Tom Carter, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about visiting Yellowstone, check out his book, Day Hiking Yellowstone.
