The Bunsen Peak Trail in Yellowstone National Park is an amazing and strenuous 4 mile out-and-back hike to the summit of Bunsen Peak.

The mountain is located in the northwest section of Yellowstone, but the views from the top are just as stunning as anywhere else in the park. At the summit, you get a 360 degree view of north Yellowstone and central/south Yellowstone.

This is by far one of the best hiking trails in Yellowstone National Park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
