The south loop of Yellowstone National Park is scheduled to reopen at 8 a.m. Wednesday, June 22, park officials said on Saturday. The south loop is accessed from the East (Cody), West (West Yellowstone), and South (Grand Teton/Jackson). Areas accessible include Madison, Old Faithful, Grant Village, Lake Village, Canyon Village and Norris.
Park officials on Sunday said that although the northern entrances to the park will remain closed for the time being, they expect to open the northern loop to access from the south within the next two weeks.
