Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park in Mid October. Please Help!

Jump to last reply

Hi, I have been doing some reading on this forum and found many interesting posts about trips to Yellowstone and Grand Teton from Bozeman, MT. This is the best forum I found, but I didn’t see anything about a trip on October. I will be flying into Bozeman on Oct 11 and need to back in Bozeman on Oct 17th. It will be me, wife and 2 kids (5 and 6 years old). I learned that many lodges and roads will be closed in the parks. Could anybody offer some trip ideas and suggestions for that time of the year? We will be renting a car at the airport and we would like to sight see, entertain the kids and enjoy nature. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Not many days, but we are trying to make the most of it...

What do I have in mind? meaning - what have I been reading about?
Chico Hot Springs
Bear Tooth Highway (it will close on Oct 14. So we will have to get to it within the first 2 days of the trip if it is indeed a good idea)
Teton Pass - Wyoming Highway 22
Gardiner, MT
West Yellowstone, MT
Junior Ranger for the kids
Maybe a boat ride? Raft?
Mesa Falls

Thanks for reading and if you have something to share please do. We don't have anything defined other than the fact that we are flying in on Oct 11th. Thanks again. Eduardo
