Yellowstone Wapiti Lake / Pelican Valley 5-Day Backpacking Tour
long in miles, but easy for terrain : 5 days, 07/23 – 07/27
This Yellowstone trip is long in miles, but easy for terrain. Of all of our treks, this one travels through some of the most heavily used bear habitat in the park, but after all, we are trekking through the Hayden Valley to Pelican Valley corridor. As always, we will be on our “A game” for bears and other wildlife. This is not a heavily used area by other backpackers, but offers great backcountry thermal areas, and wildlife habitat. This trip literally travels through the heart of Yellowstone, and does have some long days.
