The Mount Washburn Trail and trailhead parking lot at Dunraven Pass will close for improvements August 6-27, 2019.
Numerous trails suitable for short or extended hikes into Yellowstone’s backcountry begin in the Canyon area. Here are several trails selected by interpretive rangers, though some are strenuous and not recommended for visitors with heart and/or respiratory conditions.
Always carry rain gear, extra food and water, and other emergency equipment when venturing into the backcountry. Be sure to obtain current trail condition and bear activity information at the Canyon Visitor Education Center.
