yellowstone bike ride and ntd winter hike - April 12, 2024

Join this annual pre-season road bike trek into Yellowstone the weekend before the park is open to cars. The park service is preparing for the season so the roads will be plowed, but being flexible is key. Plan A is a SLOW MEANDERING bike ride from West Yellowstone to Terrace Springs or Gibbon Falls, intentionally taking about 4 hours for the 40-mile round trip. Plan B will be dictated by whatever Mother Nature is dishing out that morning. Come prepared for every combination of sun/snow/rain/wind/hot/cold. Sunday morning, the group will head out for a snowshoe/ski/microspike trek to look for moose, muskrat, and swans, departing for home in the early afternoon. Base camp is the Kilgore cabin compound in Island Park. Because of the limited space, RSVP priority will be given to WMC members.
