This hike was a great easy hike. Children would be great on it. To make it even shorter, you can walk to the Lake and back. My husband and I enjoyed it after a few other strenuous hikes. Nice lake view.

I love to walk, and this trail is just a few miles long, just long enough to 'get the kinks' out. It is basically a loop to Stormy Point and back. I think one of the most interesting things is walking through the downed lodgepole pines. Many of us are not used to forest that are just these trees. It... More

We took this hike early morning and while very pleasant, there was very little to see. The views of the lake are nice, but not really any different than anywhere else. We did not see any wildlife on our walk which was a disappointment. The walk is easy and is a good way to escape the crowds.

We did a ranger lead tour and whilst having some reservations about this found it very interesting and informative. It took about 2 hours and included a range of information that most people would not access to. Take water and mosquito repellant.

We had a pleasant hike with the litlle one in the backpack. Is a flat walk with nice variation, from small lake with grassy trail through a forest to the shore of Yellowstone Lake and back through to the forest in a loop!

Out of the 24 short hikes up to 10 kilometers long on the park service's sampler, this is my wife's favorite. While the trail to a rocky peninsula jutting out into Yellowstone lake is short, it serves as a jumping off point for strolling along the gravel beach to the west where we found thermal features against a natural jetty...

After doing hikes all over the park - Storm Point would be one at the top of my list upon return. Quick, easy, and the views of the lake are outstandingly beautiful.

If you are looking for a beautiful hike with level walking, this is the one for you! A few small hills, but nothing spectacular. We walked along the lake side to start, and really enjoyed the views. The overlooks at the lake are beautiful. We had hoped to see the marmot colony, but no such luck. :( The walk back... More

This is a relaxing 2.5 mile hike close to the east entrance of YNP. It was our first family hike with 4 adults and 2 kids. The hike starts off flat and you go past a small lake before heading to Lake Yellowstone. The trail hugs the lake shore for about a mile and then heads into the forest. We... More

This is an easy little hike with stunning views and beautiful trails in the forest and alongside Lake Yellowstone (loop - 2.1 mi/3.3 km). One great thing about this trail is that it leads through an amazingly varied landscape. The view on Lake Yellowstone is one of the best you can get and there`s lots of birds, lizards and other...
