Yellowstone National Park Closing Interior Roads For Winter

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK -

This week is your last chance to drive to many of your favorite Yellowstone National Park destinations, including Old Faithful.

The park will close all interior roads to vehicle travel starting at 8 a.m. Monday morning.

The only road that is open all year inside Yellowstone is the road connecting the north entrance at Gardiner and the Northeast Entrance at Cooke City.

Mammoth Hot Springs will also remain open.

Park spokesman Al Nash said they close the interior of the park to get ready for the winter season.

"We're closing down facilities, we are winterizing other facilities and frankly, we're waiting for snow to fall in order for it to get packed and groomed," said Nash.

Nash said while the roads are closed, the park is still open and people could walk or bike along the interior roads if they wish.

Yellowstone opens for snowmobile and snowcoach tours on December 15.
