If you’re heading to Yellowstone National Park with the plan to play outside as much as possible you won’t be disappointed. The beautiful weather, scenery, and activities cater to the outdoors-man and woman in all of us.
Whether you’re a horseback rider or a backpacker, a hiker or a biker, or you prefer to be on the water, there are activities for all ages and activity levels in this beautiful national park.
For beginners there are fishing, hiking, and horseback riding guides who can show you the ropes – and the hidden sweet spots – throughout the park. Many of these guides and outfitters set up shop outside the park, so be sure to do your research below before heading into the park.
For experienced outdoors people grab a map and your gear (and leave a note where you’re headed), then tramp into the wilderness for a physical adventure that rivals all others. Beginner or advanced, don’t forget the camera so you can document the “big one” for all your jealous friends back home.
