Encompassing northwest Wyoming, southwest Montana, and a bit of Idaho, the Greater Yellowstone region focuses on Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, and several National Forests surrounding both parks. Here, you will find not only the world-famous thermal features and parades of wildlife, but rugged canyons, remote lakes, alpine peaks, and gentle valleys graced with fragrant sagebrush and pine forests.

Because the situation on the ground is changing rapidly and so many different jurisdictions and land agencies are involved, we will no longer be updating individual parks, trails, or regions for closures. We strongly recommend you stick with neighborhood walks to support efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19. Please read this post for more information.
