From the Publisher:
Yellowstone National Park is a magnificent area with beautiful, dramatic scenery and incredible hydrothermal features. Within its 2.2 million acres lies some of the earth's greatest natural treasures.
Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park includes a thorough cross-section of eighty-two hikes throughout this national park. Now in its fourth edition, the guide includes all of the park's most popular hikes as well as a wide assortment of secluded backcountry trails. Many hikes lead to hot springs, bubbling mud pots, steaming fumaroles, and geysers (including Old Faithful) that are predominant throughout the park. Several hikes explore the rim and interior of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, a 1,200 foot deep chasm cut by the Yellowstone River. Highlights include thundering waterfalls, unusual thermal features, expansive meadows, alpine lakes, secluded canyons, and 360-degree vistas of the park. All levels of hiking experience are accommodated, from level boardwalk trails to mountainous treks up to panoramic overlooks.
Each hike includes a detailed map, accurate driving and hiking directions, distance/time/elevation statistics, a list of relevant maps, and summaries to help hikers find a trail appropriate to their ability and desire.
Companion hiking guides include Day Hikes in Grand Teton National Park, Day Hikes Around Bozeman, and Day Hikes in the Beartooth Mountains.
