Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Yellowstone National Park

4.9
Hike the trails and visit the waterfalls of Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, a large canyon on the Yellowstone River. The massive canyon is about 39 km (24 miles) long, between 240 and 370 m (800 and 1,200 ft) deep, and from 0.40 to 1.21 km (0.25 to 0.75 mi) wide. The hiking trails feature many observation points. Lookout Point, especially, provides an excellent view of the winding river and rock walls and gives a better sense of the canyon's size. The tallest of the waterfalls is more than 90 m (300 ft) high. To learn more about the geology and history of the canyon, join a guided hike led by a park ranger.
