It's a short day hike from Moon Lake Campgrounds to the Brown Duck Trail. There's plenty of camping opportunities in nearby East Basin. Please note some trail areas may be inaccessible due to winter weather. For more information, visit the Forest Service's page on Ashley National Forest: http://www.fs.usda.gov/ashley. Have a fun and safe adventure!

That is a question that has more answers than the Internet can provide : )

Our site's Yellowstone Pages has a "things to do" section that is fairly consistent with most people's top interests.  You can also visit the West Yellowstone Chamber site for more insights.  Definitely hit the IMAX theater in West on your way into the park (if you head in that direction!)

As of now all park roads are currently open except on the west side from fish creek to lodging creek and the quarter circle bridge road. This is subject to change if heavy snow creates an avalanche so refer back to the website http://www.nps.gov/glac/index.htm if anything changes between now and when you head out to the park.

The Rangers in Two medicine have already been hiking up the trail to scenic point. There are patches of snow on the trail, and as you reach the top, there will be larger snow fields to traverse.

It's always a good idea to be bear aware, but it's best to check with the park before your arrival to see if they recommend bear spray. Before you head out, check out these articles:

Yellowstone's Bears

Minimizing the Dangers of a Bear Encounter

If you do decide to purchase bear spray, don't forget to recycle your canister before you head home!
