From Lake Yellowstone (where it starts) by Fishing Bridge where Cutthroat trout span and are visible in large numbers to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone with 1000 foot cliffs and multiple waterfalls, this is the beauty of Yellowstone. The hot springs, mudpots and geysers... More

The views of Yellowstone River are simply stunning. We viewed from the Tower Fall pullout where there is a good boardwalk offering a variety of views.

We spent about a half day floating the Yellowstone River in Paradise Valley, just below Livingston, Montana. There are no rapids in this area, so its just a pleasant, relaxing float with some of the most beautiful scenery you'll see anywhere. Along the way, we saw numerous eagles and osprey in the trees along the shore and even had the... More
