Hiking Yellowstone National Park  by Bill Schneider
Yellowstone National Park crosses the boundaries of three states (Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming) and has five entrance stations: North, Northeast, East, South, and West. You can drive into the park from five gateway communities—Red Lodge, Gardiner, and West Yellowstone in Montana or Cody and Jackson in Wyoming. In addition, you can enter the park at the Bechler River Ranger Station in the far southwestern corner of the park, accessed from Ashton, Idaho. Expect to pay a fee to enter the park.
