Guided Hikes in Yellowstone

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, 2023 only) or full-day (up to 8 hours) privately guided hike in Yellowstone 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 Yellowstone's bear country. We take grizzly bears seriously!

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

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 bring plenty of water in your own water bottle on your hike.
