Map of the Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park 1882

This map, intended for early tourists to the Park, shows roads, trails, areas of geyser formation, and a proposed railroad line. The railway was planned to run north-south through the western portion of the Park from Mammoth Hot Springs, past Elk Park, through Geyser Basin, along the south shore of Shoshone Lake, and then south following the Lew’s Fork.
