Yellowstone National Park Now Open to Cyclists

March 19th, 2015 Yellow Stone Safari

With winter coming to an end it’s that time of year once again when Yellowstone National Park opens up to cyclists. While the weather can still be a bit unpredictable during this time of year and more and more people are getting back outside and on their bikes. Fortunately for people who love riding there are almost 50 miles of trails and roads throughout the park that are available.


For anyone who plans on riding their bike around Yellowstone, there are a few things to keep in mind. First of all, as we already mentioned, we’re not quite yet in the heart of spring and summer. That means that you can still expect some areas of snow and ice, so just be careful, especially if you’re riding at a high speed.


There are also a couple of rules you need to follow when riding a bike throughout Yellowstone. If you are with a group of cyclists, you must ride single file so you don’t take up too much of the road. Like anywhere, cyclists and drivers must learn to share the road at all times. There are also several closed off areas that you should not enter on your bike, all of which are properly marked.


Overall, riding a bike around Yellowstone National Park can be a fun activity, whether you are going alone or with a group of friends. Just remember that safety should always come first, and the rules of the park need to be respected and followed.
