Summary Trip Description |
This is certainly not your typical Yellowstone trip. This will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience. Referred to as the Cascade Corner of Yellowstone National Park, the Bechler Meadows adventure takes you through one of the most waterfall-rich areas in the world. Located in the SW quadrant of Yellowstone Park, the Bechler River drainage is home to a dazzling number of waterfalls and cascades including the legendary Twister Falls, Three River Junction, The Cascades, Treasure Island, Iris and Colonnade Falls. There are so many gorgeous waterfalls coming off the plateaus of the Upper Yellowstone country that it would take a lifetime to visit them all. We will cross the Bechler River many times, making this trip the ultimate outdoor adventure.
On this trip, you will definitely get wet as we cross many streams along our journey. The water can be cold and the current swift, even in August, which adds to the thrill of this ultimate backcountry experience. Our trusted string of experienced pack llamas will carry all your gear. The experienced guides will make each crossing safer and more comfortable. We’ll soak in the hot springs known as Mister Bubbles, a legendary soaking pool at a temperature of 110 degrees, minus the people. The Bechler River is not accessible by road, so only hardy hikers are found along its banks. This 37-mile point-to-point hike traces the bends, bows, and cascades of the Bechler River from its headwaters. The trails are good and not too difficult.
Along the lakes, rivers and streams, we may see beaver, muskrat, river otter, osprey, bald eagle, and waterfowl. In the meadows, we may find sandhill cranes, moose, and bears, and will certainly discover an array of wildflowers. Spending time in the beautiful region, one cannot help but respect the power of water in the Bechler River drainage. For anyone seeking some peaceful time in the mountains, in a landscape surprising for Yellowstone, this is a great option for a week-long (5-day) escape from civilization. This trip has everything you would expect from an adventure in one of the wildest and most remote areas in North America.
