Things To Do Outside West Yellowstone

The area surrounding West Yellowstone and Yellowstone National Park is almost entirely Forest Service land and is awaiting your company for hiking, biking & exploring of all kinds! Hebgen Lake is less than 15 minutes away with access to fishing, swimming, paddle-boarding, canoeing, boat rentals and more! Take a drive down Highway 287 and enjoy a lakeside view of Hebgen Lake and Quake Lake (the Quake Lake Observatory is an interesting stop filled with info about the 7.2m earthquake that devastated the area and formed Quake Lake in 1959). Henry's Lake in Idaho is a short drive down Highway 20 and is also a beautiful spot to recreate. Some of the most fantastic fly-fishing in the world can be had in Yellowstone National Park and its surrounding areas, visit a local fly shop for tips on great spots outside the park to find solitude and lunkers!

`Quake Lake` - Earthquake Lake Visitor Center

`Quake Lake` - Earthquake Lake Visitor Center

On August 17, 1959 an earthquake in the Madison Canyon River Area, near West Yellowstone, formed Quake Lake. The earthquake created a massive landslide of about 80 million tons of rock, which stopped the flow of the Madison River in the Madison River Canyon gorge. The slide moved at 100 mph and in less than 1 minute, over 80 million tons of rock crashed into the narrow canyon, blocking the Madison River and forming Earthquake Lake. This earth- changing event, known as the Hebgen Lake Earthquake, measured 7.5 on the Richter scale. At the time it was the second largest earthquake to occur in the lower 48 states in the 20th century. Twenty-eight people lost their lives in the event.
