  • This was a beautiful and quite easy (flat) hike. I was afraid we'd see a bear because of all the signs advising about bear sightings, but we didn't. We did see fresh bear scat though!! Anyway, this wa...  more »
  • Ranger lead-hike was at 4pm (daily). This was great. Moved at a decent pace, taught us a ton & kids enjoyed it. Hike offers different terrain, 2 different forests, lake views, sand, and best of all - ...  more »
  • A fairly flat and easy trail leads you to Yellowstone Lake. Storm Point is a good name as points of the trail were horrifically windy when we visited. Would not take the trail again, but did enjoy the...  more »

  • Very easy hike that starts just before the lake and continues in the forrest, passes the lake and ends in the forest as well. The outlook on the lake is amazing. Overall the hike is a bit more than 2.5 miles and took us a bit more than 2 hours
  • good hike, not a lot of elevation gain, do it on a nice sunny day in the AM
  • Of all the trails we did in Yellowstone this was probably my favorite. We saw a part of Yellowstone you don't get to witnesses unless you are off the boardwalks. I think it's about a 2.56 mile trail. But, you go through a meadow, the forest, along the water where the wind reached up to take my hat, and back through the forest and meadow. It was breathtaking views all the way through and we saw very few people. Take some water with you, there are no restrooms. Look at the map at the trailhead before you start your hike. Don't miss this trail if you are there.
  • Nice walk to Yellowstone. We had just arrived in the Park and we are found face to face with a Buffalo male a ton on the way, fantastic moment. Further we spent in a wonderful location between the Lake and the forest. See photos.

Where to stay in Yellowstone National Park

As one of the U.S.'s most popular national parks, Yellowstone provides plenty of options for sleeping within its boundaries. Choose from lodges, inns, cabins, hotels, motels, and campgrounds throughout the park. Most of the structured accommodations lie in the park's most-visited areas, such as Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, Old Faithful Geyser, and Yellowstone Lake. Staying on the northern side of the lake puts you right in the heart of the park, making it relatively convenient to visit other areas. Resorts, lodges, and guest ranches line the road just outside the park's east entrance, and a cluster of motels and hotels fills the town of West Yellowstone near the west entrance. You can also opt for lodges and inns to the north in Gardiner, Montana, or find nearly every type of accommodation to the south in Jackson, Wyoming. Staying outside the park is fine if you plan to drive through in a day and catch the highlights, but you'll want to spend at least one night inside the park if you plan to explore it more thoroughly.
