US National Parks Travel Guide

Olympic and Yellowstone Road Trip

This road trip includes parks: Olympic National Park, Crater Lake National Park, Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and more!

Yellowstone is famous for hosting more than 10,000-plus hot springs and geysers, the majority of the planet's total. Yellowstone's geothermal wonders are created by one of the world's largest active volcanoes; its last eruption caused a crater or caldera that spans almost half of the parks size. We can't forget about Yellowstone's most famous geyser, Old Faithful.

Glacier capped mountains, wild Pacific coast and magnificent stands of old-growth forests, including temperate rain forests -- at Olympic National Park, you can find all three.

The central feature of the park is the Teton Range - an active, fault-block, 40-mile-long mountain front. The range includes eight peaks over 12,000 feet (3,658 m), including the Grand Teton at 13,770 feet (4,198 m).
