YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyoming — Visitors to Yellowstone National Park have only a few more days before roads will close to vehicle traffic for the season.
The National Park Service announces that roads will close to vehicle traffic to most of the popular locations in the interior of Yellowstone at 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 3.
The exception is the road from the park's North Entrance at Gardiner, Montana, through Mammoth Hot Springs to the park's Northeast Entrance and the communities of Cooke City and Silver Gate, Montana. That road remains open all year, weather permitting.
All other park roads close for the season to allow staff members to begin preparing the roads for guided snowmobile and snowcoach travel beginning Dec. 15.
