Wander the Sandbar in Yellowstone National Park

2 Miles Total - 0 ft gain - Point-to-Point Trail

Originally added by Benjamin Johnson

This sandbar provides for a gorgeous walk through the Yellowstone Lake and is an excellent spot for photography, fishing, chilling, and admiring as one of the many underrated beauties of Yellowstone National Park.

The Sandbar is an easy to access beauty that is right off of Highway 14 which trails the Yellowstone Lake. This was one of my favorite locations to chill while living in Yellowstone and is a one-of-a-kind feature of the park that is often missed by people despite its ease of access. Also, there is not a better place to fish on the Yellowstone Lake than this gorgeous natural fishing bridge.
