Trailhead Location: Off a private, dirt road eighteen miles west of Cody off US 14, 16, 20.
General Information: This trail begins by climbing steeply up a ridge through alpine meadows and scattered pockets of limber pine. The trail soon reaches a high point. Looking to the east the hiker will see the Palisades, which are beds of limestone that have been turned vertically. Robbers Roost Cabin is on the south side of Robbers Roost Creek. This cabin is used in most years by the grazing permit owner. It may be used in case of an emergency. Soon after this, one passes through a 1.5 mile long alpine meadow. Sheep can be seen near this part of the trail. Fishing is poor because of the many small waterfalls which trout cannot pass. Many black bears live in this area.
Directions: From Cody, Follow US Highway 14, 16, 20 west for 18.5 miles to the Wapiti Fire Station. After following this road for several miles, the road forks, proceed right. There is not a public access for this small section of road - access is controlled by the landowner. This road is very rough and should only be attempted by those with four-wheel drive. The road ends at the wilderness boundary- no developed parking lot exists.
