Yellowstone has over 900 miles (1,450 km) of trails in a variety of habitats, from lush pine forests to stark thermal basins, from steep mountain treks to casual strolls along boardwalks. Take a closer look by getting off the beaten path and onto a trail.

We customize your half-day (up to 5 hours) or full-day (up to 8 hours) Yellowstone privately guided hike according to your preferences, abilities, time of year, weather, and trail conditions. In addition to guiding expertise, your guide will bring delicious snacks (on half-day hikes) or lunch (on full-day hikes), bear spray, binoculars and a few field guides.

Our guides carry bear spray and are trained in trail safety in bear country. We take grizzly bears seriously!

Tours can be adapted to accommodate all ages and abilities. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have specific needs.

When booking a hike, please specify the level of difficulty you prefer. Remember! Yellowstone is in the Rocky Mountains. The minimum starting elevation will be about 6000 feet above sea level, and we go up from there.

Be Prepared!

Our guides are fully vaccinated. To reduce the risk of Covid-19 spread and keep everyone safe during our trips, the National Park Service requires that masks be worn at all times when you are inside the vehicle with your guide. If you would prefer to follow your guide in your own vehicle, we can supply walkie talkies to accommodate you.

Please remember to bring clothing layers! It is not uncommon to have 60 degree (F) temperature changes in one day. In the winter, that could mean a change from -20 to +40 degrees (F). In summer, we could start the morning below freezing, and end the day in short sleeves. Be prepared!

Yellowstone has a dry, high-elevation climate, where it is difficult to stay hydrated at any time of year. It is important to drink lots of water in this environment. Be sure to have a water bottle with you. We provide water for refills in the field.

Park entrance fees are not included. Entrance fees are $20 per person or $35 per family, and are good for one week. Annual passes are also available. Please see Yellowstone's website: or a park entrance kiosk for more information.
