Yellowstone National Park
Great nearby recreational activities include famous ski resorts, fishing, whitewater rafting, hunting, sightseeing at national parks, hiking, biking, snowmobiling and horseback riding. There are over 1,000 miles of safe, well-marked backcountry trails in the park. Many ranger/naturalist conducted hikes help you to enjoy these.
Yellowstone is the first designated and second largest park in the national park system. Over 2.2 million acres were set aside on March 1, 1872. Nearby are Grand Teton Nat'l Park, Jackson Hole and Bridger-Teton National Forest.
We recommend putting serious forethought into any preparation for a Yellowstone vacation. Nearly 70 percent of the park's visitors come during July and August when park facilities are hardpressed. Allow three to five days to tour the park. Principal park roads are usually open from early May through October, depending on weather conditions.
