The breathtaking beauty of this national park is a scenic splendor. It is an abode to 1,100 different vascular plants species and another hundred different animals. There are over 130 lakes spread over this pristine ecosystem. Relive the history of these mountains from the last ice age and discover their yet unexplored secrets. The divine glaciers have 700 miles of hiking, which is the best way of exploring the park. 

Avalanche Lake Trail.
The most popular of the trials, Hidden Lake Trail, is a flat walk leading to fabulous natural beauty. The 1.5 mile trail is known for its fishing pleasures. But patience is a virtue when it comes to fishing at this lake for the Yellowstone cutthroat trout. For those interested in exploring the nature, a short two mile walk down the lake shore is surely stunning. 
Logging Lake Trail.
Solitude is bliss and all those searching for bliss, must take this hiking trail. The logging trail takes you through uncharted forests, with open canopies in a few burnt areas. It is a moderately steep climb but flattens out as you get closer to the 'Logging Creek Fire' scar area.
Iceberg Lake Trail.
This is the best designed hiking trail and gains a vertical heigh of 1200 feet as you reach the top.At the end of the hike lies the iceberg lake. Wildlife viewing is simply incredible here. The scenic heights provide the finest wildlife, with grizzly bears in abundance. Bighorn sheep, mountain grouse, ground squirrels, etc. are also found on this trail.
