NotesAlthough permits need to be booked in advance, it's well worth doing so for one of the world's classic walks. The views and perspectives on the canyon are ever-changing. By Late October, snow is likely at the Canyon Rim, but the lower areas of the canyon are still likely to be mild temperatures. Without the time or permit for an overnight trip, Plateau Point makes a good day-trip, or a long day-trip to the river from the Canyon Rim is possible is you're confident of covering the distance and altitude gain on the way up.

NotesThe heart of Yellowstone's geothermal area with the classic geysers Old Faithful, Riverside, Grand and Daisy. The route to walk will depend on the geyser eruption timings, which have a margin of error of around an hour or two for those geysers which erupt only once or twice per day. In addition to the geysers there are many multi-coloured steaming pools.
