Get a glimpse of Yellowstone’s rugged northeast corner on this challenging, but rewarding, guided day hike to Pebble Creek. The hike starts just north of Lamar Valley, setting for some of the best wildlife viewing in Yellowstone National Park. The trail quickly climbs up the ridge over the north shoulder of Barronette Peak. Catch your breath at the top of the ridge and enjoy the spectacular views before the hike drops into the Pebble Creek basin and reaches Pebble Creek. As we continue hiking along the creek, the landscape opens up into lush meadows framed by the jagged peaks of the Absaroka Range – a truly majestic mountain scene! Your guide will lead you to an excellent creek-side spot to enjoy a delicious lunch and take in the views. The tour will return along the same route. Stay alert in hopes of spotting a glimpse of mountain goats or bighorn sheep traversing the mountain slopes.

The creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872 was really the beginnings of something much larger: the idea that some natural areas are so unique and diverse that they must be preserved in perpetuity for the enjoyment of all.

“The geysers, the extraordinary hot springs, the lakes, the mountains, the canyon and cataracts unite to make this region something not paralleled elsewhere on the globe”Theodore Roosevelt

Yellowstone’s natural history was recognized early on as something truly special. It is written in hot springs and geysers, rivers and pristine mountain lakes, bison herds and schools of cutthroat trout, all of which is accessible on even the shortest of hikes. The parks high concentration of thermal features make the region more habitable in the winter months, creating an island of biodiversity known as the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The region is home to the largest concentration of mammals in the lower 48 states, including seven species of large predators (black bears, grizzly bears, Canada lynx, coyotes, mountain lions, wolverines, and wolves). The thermal features provide a glimpse into one part of the complex geology of the region that includes tall mountain peaks, broad U-shaped valleys carved by glaciers, and beautiful waterfalls.
