Scenic hikes challenge the hardy and reward the intrepid beginner; the world's greatest concentration of geysers burble and spout amidst the glorious backdrop of the Gallatin Range; Ranger-guided tours introduce young and old alike to the natural wonders of Yellowstone; fishing, horseback riding, camping, boating, biking and the full range of back-to-nature recreation await.
