A walk in the Park

At four miles in, the guides will stray only slightly off trail where a tributary runs through Hayden Valley. We will have a healthy assortment of snacks and  water breaks throughout the journey. There will be opportunity to soak our feet in the creek or a refreshing polar plunge! 

We hope to see bison, elk, ravens, cranes, and maybe even coyotes, foxes, wolves, and bears. Our naturalists will also teach people about the local flora, how native Americans used plants, thermal features, and other local lore.
