This was such a peaceful drive and the views were amazing! Take your time to fully enjoy the scenery and watch for wildlife on the road. Stop at Jackson Lake for some great photos!

This is a very easy drive with spectacular views all along the way. Lots of places to pull over and take pictures. There are so many features to focus on: forest, Tetons, lakes, wildlife, and so on. Beautiful drive!

We drove this beautiful parkway several times during our visit to the Tetons. There are many turn offs and parking areas where you can view wildlife and view the mountains. The speed limit is anywhere from 25 to 45. You can do the speed limit and enjoy , but be prepared to get passed by all the folks who are... More

We would have loved to stop, but we were on this road just two days after it opened, which meant the trails were snow packed. That being said, its still a beautiful drive snow covered or not. Next time, hopefully the snow will be less and we can get out an explore.

This is a beautiful route any time of year, and we've driven it often in summer. This year, we visited the area in January, and it was even better. Besides the gorgeous vistas of snow-covered mountains, there's the added treat of frequent and close wildlife sightings. Drive carefully, especially in early morning or late evening. Close to, or even on... More

This treasure between Yellowstone and Grand Teton is often overlooked by travelers, but it's a natural wonder that should be taken slowly and appreciated. Often see bears and elk along here, and the occasional moose if you're lucky.

Scenic drive makes time go by faster. Best/only way between Tetons and Yellowstone? Stop at Jackson Lake Lodge if you have time.

Scenery is spectacular, with mountain views, animal sightings, grassy meadows, evergreen forests, wildflowers galore and blue alpine lakes. Summer road construction causes some delays, so take snacks and something to drink. Have your camera ready!

It's a great road to drive on between Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Parks. The roads are packed with people so it can be slow going, enjoy the views. And then get wowed by what is beyound the next bend in the road.
