Until I see a horse actually ride Reno Creek, my eyes just glaze over whenever we talk about times down Reno Creek.
You will never be able to replicate that ride. Not unless you could do it with a group; they had-- or someone did-- the necessary local connections; and the way was cleared for a column of horses to gallop through that various ranches (and the attendant fences!). Do you see that ever happening?
Assuming I can avoid blisters and can walk 4 mph, I assume I can walk Reno creek from the divide down to the river. And walk up the rest of it. That would include Thompson's route.
Again, you would need the ranchers' permission. We drove the road, but it swung into private property and north of the route down from the divide. There was a fence across a small trail that led into the closed-off range, which, in turn, led up to the divide.
I hunted all over the internet with google looking for information on joining the preservation outfit. Found Nada. Do you have an address and preferrably a website for them

I think you are correct bc. On this ride I only took my GPS and my cheapest camera and no notebook. For my other camera with the GPS I took my notebook so I could remember where I was at a later time. In it I have the GPS location, camera, and range finder information by date and waypoint number.
I am not sure if they have a website. I went to the museum at Garryowen and puchased it there along with a map. They sent me a card in the mail and I stuck it in a safe place. I will find and get back to you.
Here is what is on the card
Its called the Custer Battlefield Preservation Committee with an address of
