Yellowstone Day 4: Lamar Valley, Norris Geyser Basin, and More

To get detailed information about lodging, amenities, and more when planning your Yellowstone trip, click here for an overview of the park before you go.

This is the fourth and final installment of the series “Yellowstone in 4 Days”. To see the other days, check out these links below:

  • Yellowstone: Day 1 (Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Upper and Lower Falls, and More)
  • Yellowstone: Day 2 (Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic, and More)
  • Yellowstone: Day 3 (Yellowstone Lake, Hayden Valley, and West Thumb)
  • Yellowstone: Day 4 (Lamar Valley, Norris Geyser Basin, and more)

Lastly, on the final Day 4 of your trip, we will be covering the northeast quarter of Yellowstone, with springs and falls interspersed among mountainous terrain. 

Today, you will see:

  •  Norris Geyser Basin
  • Roaring Mountain
  • Mammoth Hot Springs
  •  Undine Falls + Wraith Falls
  •  Tower Fall
  • Lamar Valley

This part of Yellowstone is a more interesting mix of highlights. Rather than focusing on one aspect of the park (such as waterfalls or hot springs), here you’ll find a hodge-podge of all the 3 previous days’ aspects rolled into one. 

The Northeast includes the Lamar Valley, a popular spot for the iconic bison, located just off of the main road, as well as sections of the Grand Loop trail cutting through the mountains. 

Expect to find waterfalls, rivers, animal sightings, sulfur-inundated geothermal spots, and more today. 

Here’s the day-by-day plan in case you want to look at Day 4 of your Yellowstone trip from a birds-eye view:
