This is a great hike. I spent all day hiking around the area. The country gets really rugged and more beautiful the deeper you go. There are some really great spots for overnight hikes along the way. A favorite area of mine.

New Fork Canyon Trail

Our Family has been camping at New Fork for as long as I can remember. It is great to see that I can now add one of my favorite trails to my list. The trailhead from the upper parking lot is where most start, but there is one from the camp ground that merges together about a mile later. I used the campground trail. A lot of get spots to stop and camp along this trail. A great trail to take if you are looking for a 3 day pack.

This is my favorite trail. Hard to get to but that also means less people. Great trout and even better view!

Upper Geyser Basin - The Boardwalks at Old Faithful

This is a must do in Yellowstone. The geothermal features are one of the most unique things you'll see in nature. The boardwalk is very easy to navigate, and there are plenty of places to rest if walking isn't your thing. There are typically tons of people, so be prepared to share the road...

Loved this hike. It's easy/moderate and the waterfall is a wonderful reward. Cascade Canyon is magical, and this is just the start of it.

Great views of the canyon. Definitely worth the hike. There are plenty of benches to rest on if you're worried about the intensity/elevation gain.

Cool and unique geothermal formations make this worthwhile. Not much of a "hike", which is the point because you'll want to spend time looking at all the cool features.

Great overlooks in all directions when you get to the top. Consider this hike if you've already done at least 5 better ones in the area, as this one is ok, but not breath taking like others.

Jenny Lake Trail

Easy trail that offers beautiful views from all sides you are on. Great views of Cascade canyon when you are on the east shore, wild thimbleberries all over the place on the NW shore, and if you have some steam left on the west shore, take a quick hike out to Hidden Falls. Jenny Lake is a treasure in the Tetons. Camp here if you can (but be prepared to get there early for a spot).

Easy, scenic trail for families who want to see a lot in a short walk: beautiful stream, beaver pond, the Tetons, deer, waterfowl, the occasional moose, elk, bison, eagles, trout. Fantastic place - my wife and I renewed our vows along this trail in 2005 with the same judge that married us in 1992.
