What to Expect

Grand Teton National Park is a visually stunning place like no other. The Teton Range pierces up through the flat valley with peaks at over 13,000 feet.

At the base of the range, lakes formed by ancient glaciers provide dazzling places to go hiking and sightseeing. And as part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, it has abundant wildlife viewing opportunities, including moose, elk, bison and both black and grizzly bears.

A tranquil contrast to its immediate neighbor to the north, Yellowstone National Park, it completes an epic road trip with dramatic mountainscapes, animal sighting, historic ranches and cabins, all easily accessible by vehicle.

The journey starts as you drive through any of the 4 main entrances, continuing along the loop that includes the 26/89/191 highways along the Snake River to experience the entire park drive route.

Along the way we discover how the Teton Range are some of the youngest mountains in the world, but with the oldest rocks. Relax and soak up the panoramic views of the Teton Range and surrounding valleys as we cruise to the elevated summit on Signal Mountain.

You’ll hear the stories of settlers and ranchers as you wander alongside homesteading era structures at the Mormon Row Historic District, such as TA Moulton Barn and at JP Cunningham Cabin.

Of course we head to Jenny Lake, where you can board a scenic shuttle boat and hike the many popular trails. Keep your fingers crossed and eyes peeled for wildlife along Moose Wilson Road, perhaps stopping to visit the Laurence S Rockefeller Preserve.

With all the extra stories, tips and directions, you’ll enjoy a road trip drive around the Grand Teton Loop, made easy.
