Yellowstone Roads Update

The East Entrance to Yellowstone National Park opens to automobile travel for the season at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, May 4th. Yellowstone National Park spokesman Al Nash says With repairs completed on a section of road temporarily closed south of Canyon Junction, this allows all park visitors early spring access between the East Entrance, Fishing Bridge, and Canyon.

The road from the park’s North and West Entrances to Madison, Canyon and Old Faithful opened as scheduled on April 20. Roads from the Lake area and from Old Faithful south to West Thumb/GrantVillage and the park’s South Entrance are scheduled to open May 11.

The road from Gardiner, Montana, through the park’s North Entrance to Mammoth Hot Springs and Cooke City, Montana, is open to automobiles all year. Park crews are also making progress clearing snow from the road linking Canyon and Tower Fall over Dunraven Pass. It is also scheduled to open to travel on May 25.

Nash says limited visitor services are available at this time of year,  and visitors should be prepared for very unpredictable weather this time of year.

Updated Yellowstone National Park road information is available 24 hours a day by calling 307-344-2117.
