YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK – Due to recent and predicted significant snowstorms, Tower Fall to Canyon Junction (Dunraven Pass) is now closed for the season. The pass was originally scheduled to close to public vehicles on October 15.
Staff temporarily closed the road Tuesday evening, October 8, because of accumulating snow, wind, and ice that made for extremely unsafe driving conditions.
