Yellowstone National Park
The nation's first National Park
Established on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the first and oldest national park in the world. Yellowstone lies 56 miles north of the town of Jackson. The towns of Gardiner and West Yellowstone, both in Montana, border the park on the north and west sides respectively. The closest town to the eastern entrance is Cody, Wyoming, though a nearly 11,000-ft. mountain pass called the Beartooth Pass makes Red Lodge, Montana accessible through the extreme northeastern part of the park. The only road open to traffic in the winter is the road entering Yellowstone through Gardiner and Mammoth Hot Springs and then proceeding east to Cooke City, Montana, cutting through the northern quarter of the park. The interior of Yellowstone can still be accessed via snowcoach, snowmobile or snowshoe (for the very ambitious).
