Take at Least Two Days on the Loop

We tried to do the Loop in one day and realized it really needed a good solid two days to do justice to all of the pullovers and basic trails. Time can certainly be adjusted... read more

Loop road is unbelievably scenic, traveling over Dunraven Pass, through to Canyon area then Yellowstone Lake, we went through to the Tetons then traveled back to Old Faithful and up to Mammoth. So many pulloffs to enjoy the beauty and you never know what animals you might see. Rangers do stop people for speeding so watch the speed limts.

The Grand Loop is a fantastic journey, however you must give yourself time to complete the route you select. Bison hold ups are common on the North East side, heavy traffic around the South west geyser basins can also frustrate your plans. Best take a few days and enjoy the trip, most people are lazy so get up early beat... More

You can see a little of everything from the Grand Loop Road, if you get out of the car. The scenery, wildlife, waterfalls, rivers, geysers are all here somewhere.

Scenery. Tons of overlooks and short trails to check out the scenery and animals. It will take all day but we saw the valleys, the falls, buffalo, a coyote, elk, crazy drivers, more buffalo. Walked a couple trails for better viewing so a good pair of shoes and some water work fine.

It was nice to drive the Mammoth to Norris section of the Grand Loop Road this year without the muddy mess. Construction delays were much shorter. Great wildlife viewing from this road throughout YNP.

Driving around the loop will take some time. I think we spent 4 hrs. or so. All the sites, the views and the animals. Watch out for the Bison they will walk, stand and cross the road. Again respect the animals and stay away, don't get out of your car and get up close and personal with them please.

If your’ going to see anything you’ll be on the Grand Loop Road. Be prepared, some people do not read the literature, and will stop in the middle of the road for a photo opt. even though there are plenty of turn-offs for your Kodak moment. It’s worth the drive for all the beauty, and wildlife that you’ll see. Just... More
