Yellowstone Roads Begin Closing

October 11, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments
Dunraven Pass

It’s a sure sign of the changing seasons.  Yellowstone National Park has announced the closure of some of the higher elevation roads.  Parks Spokesman Al Nash says last week, the high section of Beartooth Highway closed just northeast of the park.  Nash says travelers can still go through Cooke City and Silvergate to Cody, but the park has now also closed the entire road over Dunraven Pass for the season.  Nash says while other roads are still open for the fall traveler, that park visitor should not expect many facilities to be open.  Nash says there is only a handful of things that remain open, and you can still purchase gas at any of the park service stations by paying at the pump.  Nash advises, “If you’re planning a trip to the Park, you just need to be rather self-sufficient this time of year.”  Most of the remaining park roads other than those on the north end of the park close to wheeled vehicles on November fifth.
