Two park rangers invite you off the beaten path and into the heart of Yellowstone. No matter your age or abilities, the park has hikes to suit your interests. A Ranger's Guide to Yellowstone Day Hikes features 29 day hikes of different lengths and levels of difficulty. Each hike in the book has a contour map, color photograph, narrative about natural and human history, botany, geology, and other highlights along the trail.
Includes easy to read, accurate maps with contour lines showing elevation change, up-to-date descriptions and trail specific tips. The authors have hiked every mile of these routes and know them well. They share background stories on each trail's human and natural history, wildlife and wildflowers, geology, and quotations from explorers and early visitors. All regions of the park are included, with hiking levels from easy to strenuous.
