This is one area of the Tetons where you have your best chance of seeing moose. We saw a mother and two of her calves. Down the road from them we saw a black bear eating berries from a tree.

If you are looking for a scenic drive where you may see moose, deer, elk or even a bear, then this road from Grand Teton to Moose is spectacular. It is not a drive to be taken in a hurry, apart from plenty of wildlife and the beautiful scenery to enjoy, the road itself is gravel in parts and very... More

We highly recommend this road especially in the morning and just before sundown for seeing wildlife. We have seen bear in the past and frequently see a moose.

This was a beautiful scenic drive through the Tetons on our way out of the park. We unfortunately didn't see any moose, but even just the scenery was beautiful!

This is the place to see Moose. Their eating habitat is ideal on this road, especially closer to Moose (the little village). However, while there used to be about 1200 Moose in the area, today there are only about 300; so its rarer to see them; but this is the place.

This place is phenomenal for viewing wildlife! It ended up being shut down the day after we left. There are so many places along the road to explore. The road connects Moose to Teton Village "the back way". There are trails all along the way and Phelps lake to explore as well. Everyday we went we say black bears.Every day.... More

A major part of this road is unpaved and very very rough. If you take this road right near the visitors center at GTP park to Teton village it is not paved. Unfortunately for us the map on my cell phone sent us down this road. Once we went a few miles we debated whether to turn around, but we... More

Rental cars not recommended on this road. Yes, this road is pretty rough. As it should be to keep speed to a minimum. It is as beautiful as any road gets. Definitely should be traveled at dawn or dusk to view abundant wildlife.

This road connects the Moose entrance to the Wilson entrance of the GTNP thus the name. Almost a single lane road the pace is slow. That's ok as this area is rich with wildlife and views. You access the Lawrence Rockefeller Preserve via this road. Two other great trailheads are also along the way. The Wilson side has a stretch... More

We read the reviews and decided to take this road into the park. It's a little rough with quiet a few potholes and we were in a rental and sis just fine. It's quiet and very peaceful. We didn't see any moose and enjoyed the drive anyway. I recommend stopping at the first scenic turnout that over looks a marsh... More
