“This tour was incredible – a great way to experience all the beauty and magic of Yellowstone.” Sue F.
Explore The First US National Park
*Note: Because of the June flooding between Gardiner and Mammoth, we may need to adjust the fall tour to enter from West Yellowstone. Otherwise our itinerary will remain as published.
March 1, 1872 President Ulysses S. Grant signed into law the establishment of our nation’s first national park – Yellowstone. Widely held to be the first national park in the world, the park is known for its wildlife and its many geothermal features. It has also been a focal point for Timberline since our start 40 years* ago, included in both cycling and hiking trips throughout the years. So it is not surprising that we continue to evolve and improve our tours in the park. We are now offering an itinerary focusing on the gateways of the park – the lesser visited, but no less beautiful, trails and features. Our tour has been structured to capture not only the clearly recognized natural beauty of Yellowstone Country, but the incredible diversity of this region. A fall date will highlight the colors of the area. The crowds will have headed home, the wildlife will be in their final flurry to prepare for winter, and the temperatures are cool enough to encourage vigorous activity.
*In Timberline’s 40th anniversary year, we are celebrating all things 40
