Day Hikes

Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is a great place to go for a hike

Day hikes are a great way to get out and enjoy Yellowstone! Yellowstone has over 900 miles (1,450 km) of trails, so there is plenty to choose from when optimizing your day.

Want to know more about the natural history, wildlife, ecology, plants and history of this world renowned National Park? Come take a closer look at our natural wonders with a professional wildlife biologist and certified wilderness first responder as your guide. I offer guided half-day and full-day hikes at a variety of locations throughout Yellowstone National Park. I customize our plans for the day depending on the time of year, weather, local conditions and your preferences.

When booking a hike, please specify the level of difficulty (easy, moderately easy, moderately strenuous or strenuous) you prefer. I will provide bear spray, delicious snacks and lunch (on full day trips) as well as plenty of fascinating information. Just bring your curiosity, suitable clothing and footwear and your water bottle. We'll have a great day out!                

Are you hiking on your own but need assistance with transportation to or from your trailhead?

I can help! Please email or call me and we can discuss options.

In the spring and summer, hikes can be planned to take you where the wildflowers are blooming
Mammoth Hot Springs is a beautiful place for a short walk or follow another trail for a longer hike nearby, all close to Gardiner
