Yellowstone National Park is nearly 3,500 square miles of wilderness ecological and recreation area. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, rivers, lakes, hot springs, lush forests, thermal features, mud pots, and geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It’s also home to hundreds of wildlife species including bears, wolves, bison, elk, antelope, and more than 150 species of birds including bald eagles, osprey, and peregrine falcons.
Yellowstone National Park is located 45 minutes South of Big Sky, Montana. The West Entrance is normally open to car traffic from mid-April to late October each year and open to snowcoach and snowmobile tours from mid-December to mid-March each year. The North Entrance (located in Gardiner, Montana) provides access to the park all year, but in the winter months most interior park roads are closed to car traffic.
