We very much looked forward to this hike, including the opportunity to see wildlife. Sadly, light was running short and we only made it about 3 miles into the trail before having to turn back. The first 2 miles or so were nice but rather...More

The Slough Creek area is an excellent place for seeing wildlife. We saw Bison, Pronghorns as well as a Grizzly family all within about a mile of each other. Worth coming here.

Slough Creek was one of our favorite parts of our Yellowstone Adventure. The road into Slough Creek is not paved, which deters a lot of visitors, but it is a good road, and easily drivable. It is beautiful, heading into a valley where wolf packs...More

We drove down here hoping to go for a hike, and also maybe to spot wolves or bison. We didn't come upon any wolves, but did see bison. The views were lovely, and it was a very nice drive.

Not an overly popular hike, which is nice. Saw a black bear about a mile from the parking lot. The trail is most popular with fishermen. Bring a head net as the skeeters are fierce and plentiful. You go as far as you want. We...More

My first thought was "Were the heck are the bison?" We had brought family all the way from Florida to see the wildlife and none was to be found UNTIL we traveled Slough Creek. Buffalo everywhere! Gorgeous scenery too. Wrong time of year for the...More

We drove up Slough Creek mid morning in early June and saw bears, eagles and bison. There were many people with spotting scopes watching for wolves but we didn't see them. Apparently they were seen earlier in the morning. The "wolfers" were happy to let...More

We were here a couple of days ago and saw multiple grizzly bear, wolves, pronghorn, bison, etc. One grizzly got too close to the wolf den on Slough Creek and was chased by one of the wolves. They keep taking turns chasing and running from...More

I recently hiked Slough Creek during my first visit to Yellowstone in August. My friends and I opted for the shorter hike (about 3.4 miles) instead of the longer one which is over 9.5 miles. It was a easy hike along a dirt trail that...More
