This trip is a fantastic choice for guests looking to explore Yellowstone’s signature river valleys, vast meadows, wildlife habitat, and backcountry thermals. We hike up three connecting river valleys – Lamar River, Miller Creek and Mist Creek to a mountain pass that drops us into the Pelican River Valley.
The views from Mist Creek Pass are breathtaking and stretch all the way to the Tetons, Yellowstone Lake, and Mount Sheridan. We’ll spend days soaking up the magic of Yellowstone’s pristine and fascinating backcountry where the Snake Indians once lived and hunted, and where early trappers thrived in the 19th century.
If you’re a fisherman this is a great trip for trout fishing, and we should have time in the afternoons to wet a line. If your main focus is seeing wildlife, this is a great choice for that too (wildlife is of course never guaranteed).
Please note: this trip is operated by Wildland Llamas, a separate company from Wildland Trekking, but with shared management and guide teams. Wildland Llamas is a licensed stock outfitter and guide company in Yellowstone National Park.
