Our Sportsman Lake llama trek offers a diverse experience of Yellowstone’s amazing wilderness. We’ll hike through endless meadows, into deep pine forests, and across alpine ridges, all the while keep our eyes peeled for wildlife such as moose, elk, wolves and bison. Our route takes us into the Gallatin Mountains, named after Albert Gallatin, the longest-serving US Secretary of the Treasury and one of the architects of the important Alaska Boundary Treaty. We’ll have an opportunity to hike the tallest peak in the Gallatins, Electric Peak at nearly 11,000 feet in elevation. And for those not interested in the strenous ascent of Electric Peak, we will still get up high for amazing views at Electric Pass.
Our trek takes us up a pristine mountain valley with a sparkling trout stream winding its way down from the Gallatin Mountains. We hike up over a low pass to our camp at Sportsman Lake, where we spend two nights and have the opportunity to get above treeline. We’ll then descened via a different mountain valley back to our trailhead.
Don’t miss this unforgettable Yellowstone hiking adventure!

DIFFICULTY LEVEL 3
Scale of 1-5. 1 is least difficult; 5 is most difficult
The hike to and from Sportsman Lake is on well-maintained trails. The day hike to Electric Pass or Electric Peak (Day 3) is on more rugged terrain with significant distance and elevation gain/loss. Electric Peak is considerably more strenuous and rugged than Electric Pass, and the option also exists to stay in camp on Day 3 instead of embarking on either hike.
