YNP Fire

Gallatin National Forest officials have closed about 2.5 miles of the Hell Roaring Trail east of Gardiner, Montana due to human safety concerns caused by the Bull Fire.  The lightening caused Bull Fire, located within the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area was discovered late Friday afternoon and is burning in approximately 5 acres of dead and downed trees.  It is located near Bull Mountain, about 12 miles east of Gardiner alongside the closed portion of the Hell Roaring Trail.  The section of closed trail begins at the junction with the Speciman Trail and continues south to the Yellowstone National Park boundary.  Forest officials are allowing the fire to play its natural role within the designated wilderness area, as provided for in the Absaroka-Beartooth Fire Management Plan.
