I was scanning through the yellowstone national park website and looked at the backcountry trip planner  :
It has a section in a text box on page 4 which I copied out below which seems to indicate that rangers will allow for phone reservations from CDT hikers. Do you think this represents a relaxing of the rules to make it more practical for long distance hikers or has the literature always been like this?
thanks Brian
Entering the Park From
a National Forest
When possible permits should be
obtained in person from the backcountry
offi ce nearest the start of your trip.
However, if you are entering the park via
a national forest trail and cannot stop at
a permitting offi ce, please contact the
Central Backcountry Offi ce in advance to
make other arrangements
for obtaining your permit.
The Continental Divide
National Scenic Trail (CDNST) and the
Nez Perce National Historic Trail (NPNHT)
utilize parts of Yellowstone’s trail system.
For further information on these trails,
contact the Central Backcountry offi ce.
