Yellowstone Hiking Suggestions for a 7 1/2 Year Old

Jump to last reply

I may be able to take my daughter and then 7 1/2 year old granddaughter to Yellowstone next summer (2014).

I'm looking for hikes / activities in the OF, Canyon and Signal Mtn areas appropriate for a 7 year old. She still talks about our trip to Yosemite a couple of years ago.

Some I'm thinking of:

Upper Geyser Basin or Geyser Loop.

Grand Prismatic Spring boardwalk.

Possibly the first mile of the Fairy Falls hike and then up the unofficial trail to the elevated view of Grand Prismatic Spring.

Junior Ranger Program though I want to concentrate on outdoors and not filling in forms. Maybe download in advance and have her do most before.

Walk (we'll call it a hike) from the parking area to Moose Falls and possibly wade in the water bellow the falls. Not very far but it is in the woods.

Others?
