“one of Yellowstone's best hikes”

No other destination in Yellowstone gives you a greater opportunity to see wild bison than Lamar Valley. The Lamar River feeds a wide grassy valley, drawing the massive grazers to the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park. Route 212 (Northeast Entrance Road) runs down the valley past numerous viewpoints where you are almost guaranteed a sighting of the Lamar Valley Bison Herd. Get in the car and go! Binoculars may be handy if the bison are grazing away from the road. The bison, which can weight up to a ton, also at times walk straight down the road, stopping traffic. Bison are the biggest land mammals in North America, but they can still run at speeds over 30 mph. Be sure to view the daunting creatures from a safe distance and never approach the calm lethal beasts (trying to pet a bison is a bad idea).

Drive through Lamar Valley to see herds of buffalo, not to mention tons of other wildlife such as foxes, bears, and elk. Be prepared to take your time and enjoy the panoramic scenery. Many travelers advise making the drive early in the morning for the most animal viewings.

Beautiful vistas and lots of wildlife. Look for people pulled over. Some folks showed us wolves through their spotting scopes!

One of my favorite spots in Yellowstone - especially for wildlife viewing. Go at dawn or dusk. When I was there two years ago there were packs of wolves spotted in the early morning!

WOLVES. Two summers ago, we made it out here around 5 am. Found a group of people standing off the road, with giant scopes. They wait for the wolves to wake up and let you sneak a peak through a scope and see the wolves. Two years ago, we got to see the pups wake up and play before they moved on to another area. So amazing.

Incredibly beautiful! All types of wildlife can be seen here. We went in early June before the huge crowds so we could really take our time through all of Yellowstone.
