YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — Bicyclists will be able to travel on nearly 50 miles of roads accessible from the West Entrance into Yellowstone National Park starting on Thursday.

The roads into the park from West Yellowstone, Mont., to Mammoth Hot Springs will open at 8 a.m. Thursday.

There is no bicycle access to Old Faithful or Canyon until the first interior park roads open to motorized vehicles on April 18. The road from the North Entrance at Gardiner, Mont., remains open all year as weather permits.

Park Service officials warn bicyclists heading into Yellowstone must be prepared for harsh weather. Snow and ice may still cover sections of road.

Bicyclists could encounter bears, bison, elk, wolves and other wildlife at any time. No services are available along the road.
