“A great ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We took this road quite a few times on our Grand Teton/Yellowstone trip. We entered at the southern entrance to Grand Teton Park. There were numerous wild flowers that we stopped to photograph and we saw moose, elk, deer, beaver and birds. There are not a lot of turn offs for parking and the speed limit is low so it is not a road to take if you are in a hurry.

“They call it Moose for good reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Driving along this road, just before the turnout overlook closest to the visitors center and park entrace, you are likely to see a moose in the pond. There are several trailheads along the road, and its a great drive from the south entrance near Teton Village, or the opposite way. We've also spotted sandhill cranes in the marshes near the beaver pond. Don't miss this.

“Excellent Wildlife Viewing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

It starts when you enter the gate just north of Teton village. On the left just inside the park gate is an osprey next. Right now it has a family of osprey there. They're fun to watch. As you drive along look carefully and you can see almost any of our local wildlife. We were there yesterday and we saw a cow moose, an elk, and a beaver. There is a very large beaver lodge near the north end of the road. A local photographer has taken up residence in the beaver pond as well. He has been wading in there for days photographing beaver antics.

You cannot be in a hurry on this road because it is heavily visited and very narrow. Also note that if you do stop please pull completely off of the road so that others may get around you.

“make sure you check this road out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Very cool road to check out. If you like beavers, make sure you check this road out. We were in the Tetons for a week and every night around 7 or 8pm the beavers were out. They were very close to the road which made for great photo opportunities.
We have also seen Moose, bull, female and baby, sandhill crane, golden eye with babies, bears, elk, pronghorn, and a great gray owl.
This is one of our favorite spots in the Tetons.

We drove this several times, just for the scenery, and actually saw a moose. No trucks, RVs or campers allowed.
