An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at S Rim Trail and Biscuit Basin. Step out of the city life by going to Uncle Tom's Trail and West Thumb Geyser Basin. There's lots more to do: witness a stunning natural landmark at Old Faithful, get impressive views of Mud Volcano, take in breathtaking views at Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and identify plant and animal life at Grand Loop Road.
