Yellowstone National Park is beautiful—definitely a bucket list must! Here is a breakdown of the best route to Yellowstone from Denver:
  • Getting onto I-25 North
  • Take US-287 North into Wyoming
  • Take I-80 West through the rest of the state.
  • Take Highway 191 and start heading North.
  • Follow signs for Yellowstone.
All in all, the trip from Denver to Yellowstone takes around 10 to 11 hours of driving time. Depending on the state of the roads, you may be able to take Highway 191 into the park. If Highway 191 is closed, you may have to enter the park from Idaho to the west.
Once you make it to Yellowstone you’ll have plenty to do, but make sure you plan. Start by double-checking your car insurance to make sure you have the best coverage for your trip.
