Last Known StatusOpen

The Yellowstone ATV Trail consists of two large and interconnecting trail loops that are well marked and maintained. Lower elevation terrain mainly consists of sagebrush while upper elevation consists of thick forest vegetation.

There are plenty of camping opportunities and nearby Moon Lake offers cabin rentals and a campground but ATVs are prohibited be ridden on or near the property. Boating opportunities can be found at Moon Lake, however there is no boat ramp and the water temperatures are extremely cold.
