Yellowstone National Park Travel Guide

With Yellowstone receiving nearly three million visitors per year, the National Park Service runs dozens of interpretative programs out of different bases to keep up with visitor interest in the park's extraordinary geothermal areas and wildlife. In the summer months, rangers lead seven different half-day educational hikes around the park that visit lesser-known geothermal and wilderness areas. Hikes cost only $15 per adult and $5 for kids seven to 15.
