When you’re planning a trip, keeping track of all those little details can be quite tedious. Especially in Yellowstone where conditions can change quickly, so it’s good to be in the know for park info. The best place to get the most current park information is on the National Park Service website, where you can find maps and alerts with road closures, emergency notifications, and other details you need as your trip approaches.
You can also follow the park on social media for alerts and photogenic updates. If you’re eyeing a particular trail but you want to check in on bear activity or route closures, you can call the park directly to speak with a ranger.
