Description

Venture into Yellowstone’s rugged backcountry and be wowed by its diverse wildlife and geological splendours. Gushing geysers, towering peaks, grassy flats, dense woodland, and much, much more comprise the park’s wondrous 3,500-square-mile expanse.

Every adventure in this guidebook has its own unique character and special point of interest. For an epic journey along the Yellowstone River and into remote wildlands, try The Thorofare Trail. Head to Sky Rim for an airy traverse of mountaintops and rugged ridgelines. If you want to see many impressive waterfalls, jump on the Bechler River Trail in Yellowstone’s Cascade Corner.

Keep in mind that before you venture into Yellowstone’s backcountry, you will need to obtain a permit and book your campsite in advance. For more information, go to: https://www.nps.gov/yell/index.htm
