Grand Loop Golden Gate Sunset

Sunset at Grand Loop Golden Gate in Yellowstone

Let's go for a nice, relaxing ride.

The Grand Loop Road provides access to major areas and features of Yellowstone park, including the Upper, Midway and Lower geyser basins, Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Fall, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Yellowstone Lake.

Captain Hiram M. Chittenden of the US Army Corps of Engineers was the one who originally planned the 140 mile road system in the early days of the park, when it was under military administration. The road was named by Harry W. Frantz in 1923. He served as the park's publicist before beginning a journalism career.
