Grand Loop Road, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA
The best way to tour Yellowstone National Park is by driving A 142-mile-long road that curves around in a figure-eight past the park’s most striking natural features. At each attraction, well-maintained boardwalks and hiking trails take visitors TO breathtaking view points.
Driving the entire length of both loops can take between four and seven hours, depending on traffic. In the summer months, the traffic can be stop-and-go the entire way. For those sightseers with only a day to see the park, the best approach is to explore half of the Grand Loop’s figure-eight.
The Grand Loop tour described below starts at Old Faithful, near the southern entrance to the park, continues on to the far north of the loop, and finishes near the same point in the south. The order of attractions can be adapted depending on time constraints and which of the five entrances visitors use to enter the park.
