With its Origen in the Teton Wilderness northeast of Jackson Hole and its mouth near Bufford, North Dakota, I would not call it an attraction of the town West Yellowstone Montana but rather of Yellowstone National Park in its own, unique right.

A great river in the first US National Park. Scenic overlooks as well as an iconic river to fish. Everyone should have the Park as well as the river on their bucket lists.
