    Default Least mountainous Yellowstone access routes?

    If you wanted to avoid the steepest inclines/declines heading to Yellowstone, what would be the best way to get there?

    The wife really wants to see the park again before we move to Alaska, so I am going to include it in our route west. We are towing a trailer with a couple of motorcycles on it, and I'd like to avoid the steepest routes.

    Back in 2001, we came in through the Beartooth Pass, on 212. Absolutely beautiful, but too much for our concerns about safety this time.

    Thanks!
    Andy

    Andy, I am guessing that this would be going west from Michigan? If so, I would follow I-90 to US-16 and go over Powder River Pass.

    That route is beautiful, if a bit mountainous, and so if that is still too rugged than I would drop south on I-25 to Casper and then US-26 to Shoshoni and then diagonal north to Cody on WY-120 into the park.
