Yellowstone River Overlook Trail

Explore a ridgeline above the Yellowstone River to see hot springs, wildlife, and more.

Start with a gentle climb to a ridgeline above the Yellowstone River where you will see Calcite Springs, columnar basalt caves, and the hoodoos of Tower Falls. As we travel along, keep your eyes peeled among the sagebrush for some bighorn sheep.

On a full-day trip, we can finish by exploring the wildlife of Lamar Valley.
