Serious hikers need only apply- because this next trail could take up to two weeks long! The Thorofare Trail is a strenuous 65-mile point-to-point trail located near Mammoth. It leads along Yellowstone Lake and into the flat valley; the Thorofare.
Calling it the best view could be debatable since Wyoming has many beautiful places to hike. But, Hidden Falls in Curt Gowdy is undoubtedly one of the top best views. It has fantastic scenery with rock formations in the background, and tons of trails for hiking and mountain biking. It even has a hidden waterfall. It’s the perfect place for picture opportunities.
This is another relatively easy trail, spanning about 1 and a half miles. Even the kids will love tagging along on this one. It will be fun for them to hear the folklore surrounding the origins of the tower and get their take on the whole thing.
