We came to see Bears! When we tried to take the Moose Wilson Road we were told by the rangers that part of the road was closed because the bears were down eating the berries. I responded with that was the reason we wanted to go was to see the bears. The response I got was "well you won't". I... More

This 8 mile backcountry road between Jackson Hole and Moose, WY is a very good place to see wildlife, especially toward evening or early in the morning. We were following it mid-day and were still able to see two black bears at one of the viewpoints. There are no restaurants or gas stations along this road except at each end.... More

They recently fixed some of the potholes on the Moose-Wilson Rd, so my review may no longer be accurate, but when we traveled on it, it was one of the worst roads we've ever encountered. We were in a midsize rental car and it only had front wheel drive and it was a nightmare going through the unpaved portion. Had... More

We drove this road at dusk and saw a monstrous moose, so exciting! We also watched two buck Elks butting heads as this is the start of rutting season. Pretty cool!

We saw our first and only bear while in Wyoming on this road among other critters along with some pretty awesome scenery. Most of the road runs right up against the backbone of the mountains and there are some interesting clouds at sunrise and sunset because of this. Take your time and look carefully and you will be rewarded.

We drove this road early on a foggy Sunday morning and only saw two other vehicles the entire drive. We thought for sure we would see some animals but we didn't .....but we seem to always have bad luck. We only drove it once and I would love to have driven it at least one more time but we had...

We traveled this road a few times. Although we didn't see a bear as hoped, we did see many other animals, including the only moose we saw on our trip - he was walking alongside the car on the road. Also saw an owl and elk.

Road off the beaten path with many sightings of moose, elk, owls, beaver, etc. Stayed in Wilson; drove it every day in & out. One of our favorite rides in the Tetons.

Early in the morning and at dusk there are almost always moose to spot. We have seen moose and babies and lone moose many times on this road.
