About the trip

Yellowstone River Outlook

Climb 600 feet for spectacular views over the northern section of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, a magnificent rift through the heart of the National Park. As you peer into the canyon, you'll see fantastic towers of columnar basalt and hydrothermal features that line its walls.

The Yellowstone River Overlook Trail covers a plateau along the rim of the canyon before veering down through forests and plains. Many bighorn sheep call this area home, so keep your eyes peeled for the herds! On a full-day tour, you may want to continue with a guided tour of the Lamar Valley, using binoculars and spotting scopes to search for wolves, bison, pronghorn, elk, and other animals that call this area home!
