“YCC Trail is mostly used by park employees moving from Mammoth Hot Springs to employee housing.”— Tom Carter
The Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) program offers young people between the ages of 15 and 18 a month-long residential program. Each summer 62 teen enrollees and staff work, learn, and recreate in Yellowstone National Park. The program is challenging, educational, and fun, and offers participants opportunities to expand their horizons while building work skills.
