Route to Yellowstone

I'm heading to Yellowstone from Denver in about three weeks. Pulling a 40'5th wheel. Any issues with using 25 to Cheyenne, 80 to Rawling, then 287/26 to Moran? Appears to be the flattest and least congested route to the south entrance of the park

You have that one pass (9600') just west of Dubois that could be interesting if it snows. We went thru there a few years ago during road construction after some wet weather. That made it entertaining.

Like you said, the rest of the ride is fairly flat with a lot of open country.

While I have not been that way we have gone up 25 to Casper then over on 26 to 134 then 133 then back to 26 (to save backtracking on 26 down to Riverton)it is also decent and pretty flat. However from where 26 and 287 meet as mentioned the only significant portion is the pass west of Dubois. We went a few years in a row up there and they had been doing major road work on the pass area that was a bit painful. I recall our last trip a couple years ago that they were mostly finished with the work on the road so it should be done by now and quick look at the Wyoming DOT site shows no work being done in that area currently.

If you wanted to avoid the pass on 287 (not a biggie for us), then from I-80 go to Rock Springs and take 191 into Jackson and then through Grand Teton Nat'l Park - you ARE going to stay there, also, aren't you? Just south of Jackson are a couple large grocery stores if you need to stock up before entering the parks. Smith's is on the left and I think it's Albertson's on the right a little further toward Jackson.

I-25 to Fort Collins, 287 to Laramie, then I-80 to Rawlins and head north again is the route we always take.
