Contour Road is located in the Custer Gallatin National Forest just 20 minutes west of West Yellowstone, Montana, and the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Custer Gallatin National Forest is one of the most ecologically diverse landscapes in the region and covers more than 3.1 million acres. This road does as the name implies, climbing nearly 1500 feet along the mountain's contours for six miles. Contour Road ends near the 7900 feet elevation mark and offers incredible views from 1500 feet above Hebgen Lake, the highest vantage point of Hebgen Lake accessible by vehicle. Contour Road is not often traveled. The only noises you're going to hear up high on this trail are the bugling of elk, the screeching of birds, and the wind whispering through the treetops.
