Yellowstone questions

Jump to last reply

Hi I have looked and haven't found this information anywhere. Thanks for your help!
We will be in Yellowstone for 7 days the end of June and two days in the Tetons the beginning of July, flying home on the 3rd. We have teenagers and love to hike but my brother has younger boys- we will have 9 boys with us. We will split up some days because a 2 yr old can't do what an 18 yr old can obviously.

Besides the Old Faithful area, what areas get the most crowded? I want to make sure we hit the really crowded areas first thing in the morning. We are staying at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Mammoth Springs Cabins.

Could anyone give an estimated driving time for these trips, barring no animal disruptions- of course I know that adds time. I know people say 30 mph is a good estimate for driving speed.
drive from south gate of YNP to south end of TNP through TNP if no stops?
drive from Old Faithful to Mammoth Springs probably 8 am or 8 pm approx?
drive from Old Faithful to the Canyon area 8 am or 8 pm approx?

I have planned our activities but if something had to go because of time, which area or activity would you toss out first? In other words, what disappointed you?
Thanks!
