Most Yellowstone National Park roads close Monday to autos
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. • The roads to most Yellowstone National Park destinations will close to automobile travel on Monday as the park begins preparing for the winter season.
The only road in the park that is open to wheeled vehicle travel all year is the section from the North Entrance at Gardiner, Mont., 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, Mont.
All other roads will close for the season at 8 a.m. Monday so park staff members can begin preparing the roads for limited, commercially guided snowmobile and snowcoach travel beginning Dec. 15.
