First, a shout-out to Yellowstone-TA for a great site. I've gotten some ideas for our Denali site from you all.
My husband & I are in Red Lodge for a while & just today I decided to go into Yellowstone for a 2-week solo trip, starting this Friday (yep- on the spur of the moment LOL). The joy of retirement...
I normally backpack, but it's been years since I've been in Yellowstone so will tent camp this exploratory trip. I've read a lot on here, hemmed & hawed, then decided to bite the bullet & reserve a campground. The only one available today for that length of time was Bridge Bay.
From there I want to day hike. My interests are seeing wildlife, waterfalls & views, not so much geothermals or heavy tourist trails.
I do have Robt. Stone's Beartooth hiking guide that I use around Red Lodge & he has a few in the park.
But would love to know some of your favorite hiking trails please.
