"This is the only point in the park where an extensive transformation of natural conditions by the work of man has been permitted. Yet, it was unavoidable here, and in yielding to this necessity, the effort has been made to provide a substitution that would be in harmony with the natural surroundings, and would itself be a feature of interest."
Major John PitcherActing Superintendent   1901- 1907
A stroll along the sidewalks of the fort takes you back to when the West was being tamed, the national park idea was new, and visitors travelled the dusty roads in horse-drawn carriages. · Enhance your tour by purchasing the self-guiding publication available here or in the visitor center. · Allow 45 minutes for a leisurely stroll along the route. · Approximate distance .3 mile (.5 km). · Tour route is entirely paved and wheelchair accessible.Special Note: The Albright Visitor Center in front of you is open to the public year-round (hours are posted on the door). However, most other structures in Fort Yellowstone are employee residences and are not open to public use. Please respect the privacy of residents by staying on the paved tour route and treating their living areas with respect.
