Bechler Waterfalls & Hotsprings Loop
Yellowstone National Park, WY5.0 (8 reviews)
- Amazing Waterfalls
- Vast Meadow Systems
- Moderate Hiking
- Natural Hot Springs
- Rich Wildlife Habitat
- Scenic Camps
- Llama Trip Companions
This trip explores the stunning Bechler River meadows, waterfalls and hot springs of Southwest Yellowstone. We spend multiple nights at two of the camps, which allows us to settle in and explore the waterfalls and hot springs without the logistical complexities of moving camp each day. This trip is a diverse, wonderful hike accentuated and enriched by our wonderful llama trail companions. The llamas will carry the bulk of the supplies as we hike in comfort, without the heavier backpacks of a more traditional backpacking trip. We will eat like kings and queens, enjoy unforgettable Yellowstone meadows, keep a sharp eye out for wildlife, soak in hot springs, sit beneath waterfalls, swim in mountain rivers, and soak up the serenity of Yellowstone National Park‘s vast backcountry.
