One of the few places where you can drive up for a pretty overlook in a various directions. The top parking lot overlooks a pretty valley and distant mountains. The lower lot overlooks the famous Teton Mountains, but you have to walk a short easy path to get the best views. Sometimes the lower lot is full, just go to... More

Great perspective on Jackson Hole. It's fun to see the hawks and cranes flying "below" where you're standing.

The view is good but too many dead trees in the way of good photographs. Really good view of the Snake River Valley.

Having biked this road numerous times over the years I have to say that at the upper parts it offers outstanding views of the Teton range and the glacial topography in Jackson Hole. Unparalleled views of the kettles and glacial outwash geology can be seen, along with the mountains to the east and the Snake River. Wildlife is often visible.

This drive is not for the faint of heart! It is a long and winding road up a mountain, but the reward is a spectacular view of the valley.RV's and trucks are not allowed. The road is totally paved, but there are a minimal amount of guardrails, etc and no lights, so this is a definite daytime activity.

This a very windy and narrow road up the mountain. There are three places to stop to get really great views of the mountain range and of Jackson hole and the more flat portion of the park. Absolutely worth the drive up and down the mountain.

It is a winding paved road with two stops that provide great views of the Grand Tetons, the Snake River and all of Jackson Hole. There is no charge, and there are short paved walks from the parking lots to the viewing areas. There is a modern Port-a-John at the top parking area. The view is great at just about... More

We went up yesterday, and due to clouds the view wasn't as spectacular as we had hoped, but we did see a large bull elk and a black bear on the road down!

This is basically a scenic drive. There are two places to park. When you reach the first place, there is parking but not much else. The views are great. But keep going - the road climbs a little higher and at the top, there are better views, parking and an outhouse if needed. You can see the Grand Tetons on... More
