hiking in Yellowstone/GT -- what about the car? trail blazes?

Jump to last reply

A couple questions about the logistics of hiking in Grand Tetons and Yellowstone:

1. At the trail heads is there a designated parking area? or do we just basically pull off the side of the road and lock the car and hit the trail when we see a blaze or a sign?

2. I'm assuming there are some sort of trail blazes. I'm familiar with the East Coast/AT system with diagonal blazes for turning left or right, etc, but I have never hiked out west without a group leader in my younger days, and am wondering would it be the same sort of thing on these trails? If we are hiking off by ourselves will trails be obvious and marked?

Can you suggest a trail map that I can buy in advance so we can plan out some routes?

thanks!
