A 5 stars road to Kingman Pass in Yellowstone NP

Kingman Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.170m (7,119ft) above the sea level, located in Park County, in the U.S. state of Wyoming.

Kingman Pass

Located within Yellowstone National Park, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Grand Loop Road (U.S. Route 89). The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow.

The pass road is 86.09km (53.5 miles) long, running from Gardiner to West Yellowstone (in southern Montana). The pass is closed in winters (from December to April). It is named for Lieutenant Dan Christie Kingman of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Kingman rebuilt this difficult portion of the road in the area, known as The Golden Gate, in 1883.
