A fairly flat and easy trail leads you to Yellowstone Lake. Storm Point is a good name as points of the trail were horrifically windy when we visited. Would not take the trail again, but did enjoy the bison that were near the trail.

This hike was a great easy hike. Children would be great on it. To make it even shorter, you can walk to the Lake and back. My husband and I enjoyed it after a few other strenuous hikes. Nice lake view.

I love to walk, and this trail is just a few miles long, just long enough to 'get the kinks' out. It is basically a loop to Stormy Point and back. I think one of the most interesting things is walking through the downed lodgepole...More

We did a ranger lead tour and whilst having some reservations about this found it very interesting and informative. It took about 2 hours and included a range of information that most people would not access to. Take water and mosquito repellant.

We had a pleasant hike with the litlle one in the backpack. Is a flat walk with nice variation, from small lake with grassy trail through a forest to the shore of Yellowstone Lake and back through to the forest in a loop!

Out of the 24 short hikes up to 10 kilometers long on the park service's sampler, this is my wife's favorite. While the trail to a rocky peninsula jutting out into Yellowstone lake is short, it serves as a jumping off point for strolling along...More

After doing hikes all over the park - Storm Point would be one at the top of my list upon return. Quick, easy, and the views of the lake are outstandingly beautiful.

If you are looking for a beautiful hike with level walking, this is the one for you! A few small hills, but nothing spectacular. We walked along the lake side to start, and really enjoyed the views. The overlooks at the lake are beautiful. We...More

This is a relaxing 2.5 mile hike close to the east entrance of YNP. It was our first family hike with 4 adults and 2 kids. The hike starts off flat and you go past a small lake before heading to Lake Yellowstone. The trail...More
