Yellowstone National Park is home to some of the most extraordinary and other-worldly hiking trails in the world. Since it’s situated on top of a supervolcano, many trails feature some kind of thermal features as a result of the thinner crust under the park, with no two features appearing the same. Many of Yellowstone’s more popular trails are easily accessible and easily walkable boardwalks that wind people safely around the thermal features. These include walks around the Upper, Midway, and Lower Geyser Basins, Mud Volcano, and Artist Paint Pots. A few trails even show off some of the park’s natural beauty, such as multiple trails around the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River and Specimen Ridge. Hundreds of more miles of trails bring visitors deep into the wilderness, some areas being the most remote in the Lower 48. With over 1,000 miles of trails, Yellowstone has something for everyone to experience something truly unique.
