A Walk Through Time Day Hike
Cultural History, Day Trip, Hiking, Natural History
Come see first-hand Yellowstone’s geologic past, as seen in the rock layers of Mount Everts. You will hike off-trail to the summit of Mount Everts and stop along the way to identify the characteristics of the landscape that put the geologic history into context. The slopes of Mount Everts are open and give a wide view of the surrounding mountains and canyons. As we ascend higher on Mount Everts, the rock units get younger and younger, as we walk from the distant past up higher to the relatively recent remains of the last ice age.
