Yellowstone National Park offers 1,200 miles of hiking, walking and backpacking trails that wind through the park’s 2.2 million acres of spectacular and mostly untouched terrain. Led by a naturalist, explore pathways that thread through Yellowstone’s matchless landscape of diverse flora, thermal features, landforms, canyons, cascades and waterways.


Highlights

• Discover a spectacular and mostly untouched landscape while hiking a fragment of Yellowstone's 1,200 miles of backpacking, hiking and walking trails.
• Four days in the field offer a tantalizing glimpse of the Great Caldera’s infinite wonders.
• An instructor’s interpretation and observations enhance your hiking field trips and provide an intimate portrait of the park’s wildlife, habitats and geology.
