“Another great, well-organized Timberline trip!” Robert B.
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 earliest days, 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. This year we are offering a whole new 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. We have chosen a June date this year to enjoy the spring awakening. Yes, June is still spring at Yellowstone. The crowds have not yet gathered, the wildlife is still awakening, flowers are beginning to bloom and temperatures are cool enough to encourage vigorous activity.
