A 29-mile drive that begins in thick forest and continues through a stark canyon into a river valley formed by glaciers over the past 13,000 years. This valley offers good wildlife viewing, including the possibility (not probability) of sighting a wolf. The Northeast Entrance to the park, the most remote gateway to Yellowstone, sits in the Beartooth Range of the Absaroka Mountains. Although tiny Cooke City is the least accessible of Yellowstone’s entrance communities, it bustles with tourists, snowmobilers, and cross-country skiers both summer and winter. Nonetheless, the road that leads into the park from Cooke City is one of the least traveled. Special Attractions: Soda Butte, Buffalo Ranch/Yellowstone Institute, the Lamar Valley, good fishing in the Lamar River and Slough Creek. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
