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 or full-day Yellowstone guided hikes according to your preferences, group abilities, time of year, weather, and trail conditions.
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.
- ● Easy: Up to 3 miles on flat terrain, with little or no elevation gain. May include boardwalks or stairs.
- ● Moderate: 3-6 miles on rocky terrain with up to 800 feet elevation gain.
- ● Moderately Strenuous: 6-8 miles on rocky terrain with up to 1000 feet elevation gain.
- ● Strenuous: Over 8 miles on rocky terrain, possibly off trail, with steep inclines and possibly over 1000 feet in elevation gain
As an effort to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, masks are required when you are within 6 feet of your guide or other park visitors.
Please remember to bring clothing layers! It is not uncommon to have 60 degree (F) temperature changes in one day. Anytime during the summer season, we could start the morning below freezing, and end the day in short sleeves. Be prepared!
Yellowstone has 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.
