“Laurence Rockefeller's influence is everywhere, as he wanted this area to be enjoyed by ALL in perpetuity.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Views, wildlife. Saw foxes, moose, deer, antelopes, everywhere one looks there are unspoiled views. I am due that in the summer months the roads re clogged with tourists. Best time to visit seems to be before July 4th and after Labor Day.

“Not many scenic roads like this one....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

They say that only 1% of tourists driving through GTNP get out of their car and hit a trail or float the river or ride a horse. This drive from Jackson to Flagg Ranch at the south end of Yellowstone NP is one of the most beautiful in North America. Watch for wildlife. Bison love to stampede across the road. PLEASE stop for any wranglers trying to get horses across the road. The only other comparative drive would be the Beartooth Highway between Cooke City and Red Lodge Montana. You'll think you're in heaven on either drive....

“Thank you Mr. Rockefeller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This is a beautiful drive, and if you learn the history of Grand Teton National Park and of the leadership and generosity of Mr.
Rockefeller in acquiring the land and his efforts to ensure it's safety by working for it to attain National Park status--it's easy to
see he was a true philanthropist.

“The Visitors Center and Trails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Beautiful center. Good trails carefully marked so you can find your own level. A ranger is always on duty in the center. Always carry bear spray when hiking.

Its a nice road that connects Grand Tetons to the Yellowstone roadways. Lovely views and not a lot of traffic.
