Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park
by Robert Stone (Day Hike Books)
The first part of this hike follows beside the Gibbon River on the south edge of Gibbon Meadows. The trail then climbs a hill to a thermal area with unusual sinter cones, mud pots, stream vents and sulfur caldrons. A special feature of this hike is that few people hike the trail, so you may receive a private showing.

by Andrew Dean Nystrom (Wilderness Press)
