Craig Pass

A curvy paved road to Craig Pass in the heart of Yellowstone

Craig Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.525m (8,284ft) above the sea level, located in Teton County, in the U.S. state of Wyoming.

Located on the Continental Divide in Yellowstone National Park, the road to the summit is paved. It’s called the Grand Loop Road (U.S. Route 191). It’s a very scenic drive, with uncountable turns and twists. Open to traffic throughout the year, the road may be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad. The pass was named after Ida Craig, supposedly the first tourist to cross the pass after it was completed in September, 1891.
