Hayden Valley Reviews & Ratings

  • The scenery around here is really underestimated. Hidden gem without doubt especially in the morning during the sunrise time. The morning fog here makes it a mighty spot.

  • The valley area is gorgeous! We stopped to take a bunch of silly videos and pictures to add to our trip because it was an easy stop between destination spots!

  • Probably my favorite place in Yellowstone! Woke up super early to come watch the sunrise and was not disappointed. Saw deer, buffalo, and elk! You really get to see the valley come to life!

  • Great place to see the Buffalo!

  • Didn't see any animal at the early May. But the snow with river looks really nice and amazing.
