About the trip

Descend into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River

Descend 1800 feet into the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, a magnificent rift through the heart of the National Park. The rainbow-colored canyon is made of volcanic rock that has been "cooked" by hydrothermal features that line its walls.

The Seven Mile Hole trail begins in a dense lodgepole pine forest along the rim of the canyon before diving into the canyon itself. You'll travel through otherworldly fields of hot springs and steam vents until you arrive at the bottom of the canyon, where the Yellowstone River flows. We'll enjoy lunch alongside the river before beginning our ascent back to the top of the canyon's northern rim.

Level 7

Vigorous - For fit, experienced hikers only

On Level 7 trips you’ll encounter some of the steepest elevations and technical terrain available within a day’s drive. These trips are for athletic types and those who wish to push their physical abilities.


You can expect to be active for six to eight hours. You can best prepare for a Level 7 trip by maintaining your intense fitness regimen, trying to get your mile time below eight minutes, and hiking consistently on the weekends.


Level 7 hikes can be anywhere from ten to thirteen miles.


We will be on mountainous, exposed terrain and steep, uneven trails. Most hikes will require not only hiking boots but also additional gear like hiking poles and headlamps.

Elevation Change

Up to 2,500 feet per day.


Up to 12,000 feet.


We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little rain or wind ruin a chance for an adventure. You can contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about preparing for trail conditions.
