Description

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. Wildland Llamas is a licensed stock outfitter and guide company in Yellowstone National Park.

Weather in Yellowstone

Being a Northern mountain environment, Yellowstone is prone to sudden temperature and weather shifts. This is an exciting aspect of being in Yellowstone. On the Spring/Fall Trekking Adventure in June, snow is a slight possibility, and the rest of the summer you’re likely to get rained on at least once during your trip. To be fully prepared, please follow the recommended clothing list closely (this list comes as part of your trip packet when you register). See below for average summer temperatures in Yellowstone:

Educational and Fun

Jennifer, our guide for the day, did an amazing job answering questions, giving us the history of the area and preparing our lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and highly recommend Wildlands Trekking.

Very Pleasant Experience

9 months ago

We selected Wildland based on other reviews and were not disappointed. the sign-up forms are rather straight forward. Just make sure that each hiker has his/her own email address or else their system may get confused and you do not get the registration info for each person ! The guide was an outstanding! She communicated well before the trip and ensured that we are fully aware of what to do to get ready and what Wildland will do. She met us on time at the meeting location and quickly got us ready to proceed to the 7 Mile Hole trail head location. During the hike, she was always ensuring that we are comfortable. Highlighted picture worthy spots and offered to take pictures. She prepared the most wonderful snack bag for each of us, with various healthy choices and home-made delicacies. The guide openly shared details about the terrain as we passed through and was readily answering any questions. Also, she highlighted a few restaurant choices in the nearby town, which we followed up on and were delighted with Madison Crossing restaurant! Great alternative to the 'take out only' options in the Yellowstone Park. Overall, very pleasant day-hike experience and meeting the guide. Will certainly seek her out as guide again when next in the area.
