Driving in Yellowstone

Jump to last reply

I and my 15 y/o daughter plan to visit Yellowstone next summer and I have some concerns about the roads.

I plan to fly into Jackson hole and rent a car for the duration of the trip(at least 1 week). I have an extreme fear of heights and treacherous roads(Ouray, Colorado to Silverton!!!)

Are there any vertiginous roads in YNP, especially going over the pass to the Lamar Valley? Or are the roads fairly flat and level, with no significant drop-offs?

I would love any advice on which roadways to steer clear of. Thanks so much!
