This Yellowstone National Park Day Hikes Topographic Map Guide contains detailed maps for 18 of Yellowstone’s finest day hikes, scattered across 6 regions of the park. It includes well-known hikes, together with a few off-the-beaten-path trails, selected to give you a wonderful sampling of all the park has to offer. Together, they cover more than 100 miles of adventures. One-third of the selected hikes are less than 5 miles long, two-third are less than 8 miles, and only one hike is longer than 10 miles.
Each of the 18 maps include directions to the trailhead, the total distance to complete the hike, and an estimate of the degree of difficulty. Also provided are elevations of key points on the trail, an elevation profile for the hike, and a calculation of the total elevation gained over the hike’s course. Trail descriptions found on the next page will help you find the hikes that best suit your interests and conditioning.
