Choosing a Yellowstone Day Hike
On our Yellowstone guided day hikes, you'll encounter meadows, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and stunning views of mountain peaks and valleys. Join us off the beaten path and immerse yourself in Yellowstone's wilderness.
For a challenging peak ascent and breathtaking views, our guides' choice is the Bunsen Peak Day Hike. The trailhead is near historic Fort Yellowstone, a hallmark of the area's rich cultural history. As we scale the mountain, you'll learn about the park's geologic and botanical diversity from your knowledgeable guide. At the 8,527-foot summit, enjoy views of the Yellowstone River Valley.
Enjoying a moderate day hike to Lone Star Geyser, the largest backcountry geyser in Yellowstone, is a must-do while in the park. We'll walk along the Firehole River among towering pines until we reach the geyser, a 12-foot-tall mound of geyserite. As you enjoy a picnic lunch and wait for the 45-foot eruption, your guide will teach you about the science behind hydrothermal plumbing. Enjoy this impressive display in solitude, immersed in the wild backcountry.
Our Yellowstone day tours offer a range of difficulty and solitude levels. Want a shorter hike on good trails? Consider our Mystic Falls Loop Day Hike. You'll experience a stunning Yellowstone waterfall and walk a section of the historic Continental Divide Trail. Are you looking for a more rugged experience away from other hiking groups? Soak in wild hot springs and explore the pristine Snake River on our Snake River Day Hike.
