Our Heart Lake Llama Trek is an awesome opportunity to explore Yellowstone National Park‘s spectacular wilderness. We’ll sleep under the stars, feast on tasty backcountry cooking, enjoy days of memorable hiking, and keep an eye out for wildlife. We’ll also see very unique Yellowstone highlights including thermal features, wildlife, and big mountain views. We’ll camp next to lakes and rivers and enjoy roaring campfires.
Our hike starts near Heart Lake, where we camp for two nights and ascend Mount Sheridan on Day 2. On Day 3 we leave Heart Lake and enter into the deeper backcountry, traversing the Heart River to the Snake River, and exiting near the South Entrance of Yellowstone.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL 3
Scale of 1-5. 1 is least difficult; 5 is most difficult
This trip has long days of hiking (up to 11 miles) and significant elevation gain/loss, especially on Day 2. However, that hike is optional. The trails are well maintained, and aside from Days 1 and 2, the mileages and elevation changes are moderate. Crossing the Snake River twice requires good footing and balance.
Max Daily Elev. ↑↓:
- Hiking uphill or downhill with a 10-20 lb backpack for 8-10 hours
- Maintaining balance and footing on moderately rugged terrain
- Crossing rivers with slippery rocks and fairly swift currents
