This weekend will be the last chance to drive to some of Yellowstone National Park’s most popular tourist destinations, as many of the park’s roads are getting set to close for the season.

Yellowstone National Park announced that roads to most of the park’s popular locations, like Old Faithful and Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, will close for the season at 8 am Monday, November 5th. Park staff members need to begin preparing the roads for limited, commercially guided snowmobile and snowcoach travel for the winter season (beginning December 15).

The only park road open to wheeled vehicle travel all year is the section from the North Entrance at Gardiner, Montana, through Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Junction and the Lamar Valley on to the park’s Northeast Entrance, and the communities of Cooke City and Silver Gate, Montana.

At Mammoth Hot Springs, the Yellowstone General Store, Post Office, medical clinic, campground and the Albright Visitor Center remain open all year. Pay-at-the-pump fuel is available 24 hours a day all year at Yellowstone Park Service Stations in Mammoth Hot Springs and Tower Junction.

The park reminds people to be ready for changing weather in the park during the winter. Mud and snow tires or tire chains may be required. Updated information on road conditions in Yellowstone is available 24 hours a day by calling 307-344-2117. Extensive information and assistance for planning a visit to Yellowstone is available on the park’s website.
