Yellowstone National Park: Shoshone Geyser Basin Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Camp in an active geyser basin teeming with wildlife.

Frontcountry geyser basins are cool. But backcountry geyser basins, where no boardwalks or crowds interrupt the steaming, bubbling, bursting landscape, are where the earth really comes alive. Getting to Shoshone’s geysers and hot springs is half the fun: You’ll hike deep into a wilderness filled with grizzlies and bison, crossing the Continental Divide at 8,010-foot Grants Pass before dropping to the basin on the edge of Shoshone Lake. This ain’t no Old Faithful area: You’ll experience Yellowstone’s thermal zones like the early explorers did, so step carefully."
