Yellowstone is a seasonal park. In the warmer months you can hike, bike, camp, whitewater raft, horseback ride, and climb…not to mention ziplining, fishing, and backpacking. In the winter months, leave your car at Mammoth or a gateway town, and get around by snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, or even dog sledding.
