Yellowstone National Park

An exceptionally diverse landscape and varied wildlife have made Yellowstone National Park one of America's most popular parks.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Beartooth Hwy and S Rim Trail. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive and Cooke City Montana Museum. Explore Yellowstone National Park's surroundings by going to Mesa Falls (in Ashton), Cooke City (Yellowstone Trading Post & Sylvia's Sweet Shoppe) and Moose (John D Rockefeller Jr Memorial Parkway, Chapel of the Sacred Heart, & more). Spend the 3rd (Fri) exploring nature at Old Faithful Visitor Education Center. On the 5th (Sun), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Mount Washburn. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Grand Loop Road, cruise along Signal Mountain Summit Road, admire the sheer force of Upper Falls of the Yellowstone River, and explore and take pictures at Bear Tooth Pass Hwy.

For maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Yellowstone National Park online journey planner .

In April, daily temperatures in Yellowstone National Park can reach 42°F, while at night they dip to 17°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
