7 Best Hikes in Yellowstone National Park


Many consider Yellowstone National Park one of the finest national parks in the US National Parks network and one of the top hiking destinations in the US.

Over 2.2 million acres of rich and diverse wilderness with geyser basins, stunning waterfalls, mountainous terrains, canyons, meadows, and lush forests.

Storm Point

The trail takes you through wildflower meadows and pine forests before opening up onto the lake, offering hikers exceptional views out over the waters and surroundings.

Lone Star Geyser

Following along the Firehole River, you’ll walk through a forested valley until you arrive at the geyser basin, where you’ll get to witness the Lone Star Geyser erupting 45 feet into the air.

Fairy Falls

Set in the Midway Geyser Basin, the flat and fairly easy 5.4 miles round trip Fairy Falls Trail leads hikers to the breathtaking 200-foot high waterfall of the same name.

North Rim

The North Rim Trail, 7.6 miles out and back, is often overlooked in favor of the more popular South Rim Trail, missing some of the most spectacular overlooks in the park.

Mount Washburn  (from Dunraven Pass)

Apart from the stunning wildflowers that cover the mountain throughout July, you may also spot bighorn sheep on this trail.

Point Sublime

Yellowstone is known for its dramatic landscape and scenery, and it doesn’t get better than the spectacular views of the Yellowstone Grand Canyon from the viewpoint known as Artist’s Point.
