Looking for a more adventurous day hike? Let us lead you to the bottom of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone on this dynamic full-day hike. Seven Mile Hole is the only established trail that takes you below the rim of this colorful canyon. In the first few miles, we’ll enjoy classic Lodgepole pine forests, a splash of meadows, and a view of Silver Cord Cascade. Eventually, we’ll leave the wide flat trail behind us and begin an intensely steep down climb. The forest will open up to an other-worldly geyser basin before we drop even further to reach the river’s edge. Down here, the canyon walls are painted an array of vibrant colors that rival those seen at Artist Point. Unlike visiting those walk-up canyon viewpoints, you’ll have few to zero other hikers around while you relish this magical place.
This is our most serious Yellowstone day hike. We descend over 1,000 feet in less than 3 miles and wrap up with 10 total miles for the day. Be ready to challenge yourself on an exciting hike and reap the rewards of this remote destination!
Please note: this hike 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.
