Best Things To Do in Yellowstone
Yellowstone is known for its red-tinged canyon walls and awe-inspiring natural wonders, like Old Faithful and Mammoth Hot Springs, but you can't miss exploring some of the park's less frequented hiking trails and basins for striking views of the park's waterfalls, forests and alpine lakes. The park's attractions encompass everything from horseback riding in the backcountry to fishing at the lake, so plan to hit the sites that cater to your interests. Venture to Yellowstone Lake for a boating expedition and excellent wildlife-watching opportunities or head north to marvel at thermal attractions within the Mammoth Village area. And whatever you do, make some time to soak in the scenery as the sun rises in the morning or drifts down in the evening — both ideal times for spotting the park's magnificent array of wildlife, which includes osprey, moose and grizzly bears.
