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!
