Itinerary help

Will be visiting our son in Rapid City the end of September. Thinking of doing 3 days in Yellowstone(if we can get rooms). Would appreciate any help in planning an itinerary for 3 days. Would like to do some moderate hiking, seeing geysers is a must. TIA.

It will be a full days drive from Rapid City to Yellowstone.

Do you have three full days- 4 nights for YNP? Do you have extra night for the Tetons? Are you returning to Rapid City?


Day 1 Rapid City to Cody

Day 2 Cody into YNP. Lake/Canyon area, overnight Canyon

Day 3 Canyon to Lamar Valley to Mammoth to OF, overnight OF or West Yellowstone

Day 4 Thermal areas, overnight OF or West Yellowstone

Day 5 OF to GTNP?

Late September may be nice, or it may be winter weather, so be prepared.
