Mt. Washburn via Chittenden Road

A trail follows the old Chittenden Road to Mt. Washburn in Yellowstone National Park. While this approach isn't as popular as the route from Dunraven Pass, it is shorter and has plenty of views.

Ice Lake, Wolf Lake, and Grebe Lake

The trail connecting them roughly follows the Gibbon River on a nice trail allowing you to visit Ice Lake, Wolf Lake, and Grebe Lake with a short shuttle in between.

Mt Holmes and Trilobite Lake

The long hike to Mt. Holmes in Yellowstone National Park takes you from meadows along creeks, through burn areas, up to barren, rocky landscapes with plenty of views at the site of a lookout. On the way to the lookout, a trail forks off to the small, alpine lake called Trilobite Lake, tucked beneat

Grizzly Lake

The long, beautiful Grizzly Lake in Yellowstone National Park sits nestled between two, lodgepole pine covered ridges. These surrounding pines are spaced out in a way that gives you nice vantages and are interrupted by meadows. The birding is great and the lake has a great shoreline to grab a snack.
