The One Extraordinary Hike Under 5 Miles Everyone In Wyoming Should Take

In a state with hundreds of impressive trails, it’s no easy task to single out just one. But the truth is, not everyone has the time or skill set to tackle some of the multi-day treks through mountainous terrain. That’s where the hikes under 5 miles seem particularly appealing.

Uncle Tom’s Trail in Yellowstone is a popular trail for hikers of all skill level, mostly because of its extraordinary views of one of the parks most fascinating features: The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. This trail is actually less than 1 mile roundtrip, but don’t let that fool you. You’ll experience some of the most incredible views the park has to offer.
