To do in the BTNF in the Teton Wilderness in Park County:

In the Teton Wilderness, the Thorofare region, which is just south of the forest’s border with Yellowstone National Park, is home to the most remote place in the Lower 48 states in terms of distance from a road. Access to the Thorofare from the BTNF is from Turpin Meadow Trailhead (the North Fork Buffalo Trail) and from the Shoshone NF via the South Fork Shoshone. The latter gives you the choice of going over either Ishawooa Pass or Deer Creek Pass.
