Grant Village Area: Lewis River Channel/Dogshead Loop Trail - Yellowstone National Park

Distance, round trip: 7 or 11 miles

Estimated time: 3-8 hours

Difficulty: moderately strenuous

Trailhead: Approximately 5 miles south of the Grant Village intersection, just north of Lewis Lake on west side of road.

This trail gives you a feel for Yellowstone's backcountry. Hike through forest to the colorful waters of the Lewis River Channel. Look for eagles and ospreys fishing for trout in the shallow waters. Turn around here for the shorter trip or continue on a loop trail that takes you to Shoshone Lake and returns on the forested Dogshead Trail. Beyond here the trail continues into Yellowstone's vast backcountry. The dayhike stops here; return by the same route.
