Grand Loop Road, Yellowstone National Park

(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
A hodgepodge of different building styles and sections exist along Grand Loop Road, which gives visitors access to many of Yellowstone National Park's most famous and noteworthy sites. Stretching more than 225 km (140 mi) on multiple segments of highway, the National Register of Historic Places-listed route will take you from the main park offices to the shores of Yellowstone Lake and back again. As you drive through canyons and alongside waterfalls, rivers, and the vast Wyoming landscape, you'll find that the loop offers numerous turnouts and turnoffs toward nearby towns and other parks. Famed attractions, such as the Old Faithful geyser, also lie along the route. Put Grand Loop Road on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Yellowstone National Park trip itinerary builder.

  • The Grand loop road is the road in Yellowstone Park. You passes all major attractions. There are also some branches, that are also worth such as for example the Firehole Lake drive. As in the entire Park, so here too early is worth, not everywhere to meet crowds of tourists
