Destination: Yellowstone

Established in 1872, the world’s first national park is an iconic landscape of exploding geysers, deep canyons and magnificent wildlife. And with more than 1,450km of trails, walking is by far the best way to experience its wonders – and escape the millions of visitors it receives annually.
