We absolutely considered this to be THE place to guarantee wildlife sightings on our trip. We woke up before dawn to travel the road and view the sunrise from the top. We almost missed it because we were so captivated by all of the elk and deer we saw on the way up. We also came back in the evening... More

This road twists and turns ever higher and higher. There are a couple of stops for views. From the top you can see for miles, its incredible. We visited here after the long cascade canyon hike so took the opportunity to get out the camp shower and freshen up looking out over miles of wilderness, breathtaking.

An easy excursion off the main road. We actually found the lookout prior to the end of the road (second lookout) to provide the best views of the Tetons from the mountain - and a great picnic place if you don't mind cozying up to a bush. Feel free to do both stops as they are both unique.

This road is narrow and very winding. If you travel this road…drive slow….I am surprised there hasn’t been more accidents on this road. There were a lot of drivers driving way too fast for these roads. People have to understand you are on vacation and you do not need to drive like a road demon. Sit back and enjoy your... More

A good paved road, somewhat narrow and winding but still a good road. The view at the top is stunning and you are certain to see wild life if you travel this road early in the morning or late in the afternoon. We went at both times and saw elk and deer both times. The top gives you an excellent... More

10 years ago we found lots of wildlife on this road in the fall.. moose, elk, martin, deer. This year same season.. and we could only find a few deer. The views are a nice way to get the lay of the land in the area, but the wildlife seems to have moved on.

Somewhat winding but road pavement is new and the view is worth the 10-15 minute drive to the top. You can see for miles looking over the Jackson Hole or valley below.

It's a pretty drive, but there aren't many stunning views as there is fairly dense forest all around the road. There is one great view from a turnout about 1/3-1/2 of the way up on the left side. The top is a good place to camp out and scout for wildlife. Some older couples had brought some nice binoculars with... More

One of the main things I don't like about road trips is that a lot of these "scenic" roads have steep drop-offs and hairpin turns. This road is not like that at all. The road is somewhat narrow, but is lined with beautiful lodge pole pines. You never get that drop-off feeling. The summit rewards you with breath-taking views of... More
