Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park. Located in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, it is home to a large variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. Preserved within Yellowstone National Park are Old Faithful and a collection of the world's most extraordinary geysers and hot springs, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

Great short hike with beautiful views from the overlook. If you're short on energy or time, you can easily just go out and back to the falls.

There's a little bit of everything Yellowstone has to offer on this mellow loop trail - meadows, geothermal activity, ponds, canyon, waterfalls, river... Added on Uncle Tom's trail, several reading breaks, and a couple offshoots to bring this up to 5 miles in 2 hours.

Late in the season so we had to be very bear conscious, but the top was incredible. Hard hike!

Steep hike downhill with a great view right next to the Lower Falls. Hear and fell the roar of the falls

The south rim trail is a great way to experience the Canyon, which was one of our favorite parts of Yellowstone. There are great views of the waterfalls, and the trek down the steep stairs of Uncle Tom's Trail gives another vantage and is worth checking out.

Trail is very easy and short so it's worth the hike for a really pretty view. You don't have to do the whole loop either if you're trying to conserve time you can just hike 1 mile to the falls and turn around to cut some time off.

This was a 3 day guided canoe trip. If you enjoy disconnecting from civilization for a few days and seeing some wonderful sights without too much hiking, this is an excellent trip.

The first lake is great practice and leaving in the morning increases your odds of good weather. The river is pleasant but the last mile or so is tugging your canoe up a gentle currant as the water level is low. The first several hundred yards of this is fairly rocky, so good shoes are recommended. You make camp on Shoshone lake - there are only a dozen or so reserved campgrounds, so you have tons of space to yourself. On day 2 you head to the end of the lake where there is a very dense cluster of thermal features - very interesting stuff! You head back to camp. Day 3 is basically just heading back to where you started. Depending on the time of year (water level) you might even be able to stay in your canoe down the whole river.

We had a great guide who did the planning for us. I highly recommend finding a guide to do this trip as they'll know the ins and outs, which permits are needed, food, etc!

Great trail. Fun , great river location at top of waterfalls to soak your aching feet. There are two stream crossings that require balancing over logs or wading through stream. The lake is gorgeous.

Nice trail after the boardwalk.

The first 4 miles are through gently rolling meadows and some forest. If you hike all the way to the sky rim trail, the last two miles are steep but the views are worth it. The out & back is just under 12 miles.

Steep climb but big reward in a short amount of time.
