MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, WY – Yellowstone National Park will begin to issue free day ride permits to individual users who take stock on park trails in 2017. This is a change as the park has not issued day ride permits in the past. The purpose of the free permits is to help the park understand where, when, and how many individual stock users visit Yellowstone. Park rangers may ask to see users’ permits during rides on trails.
Stock users can obtain their free permits online, by calling the central backcountry office at (307) 344-2160, or at any of Yellowstone’s backcountry offices.
Yellowstone’s stock packing regulations remain in effect.
Traveling in Yellowstone’s backcountry with stock is an exciting way to see the park. The free day ride permits will help park staff assist riders in planning safe, enjoyable, and low-impact trips.
