Nice drive and yes there were moose!

This is a nice drive with a few places to pull over. If you want to see moose, start early. I also recommend stopping and taking a hike at the Phelps Lake area.

We decided to try this road on the way out of Yellowstone in the middle of the day. We were not real confident but It was worth the extra few minutes. We were able to get within 30 yards of a young bull moose and a large cow. We also saw mule deer as well.

This area is quiet but very convenient to Jackson. Head north from here to get to Jenny and Jackson Lakes. There are plenty of places to rent and we stayed in a 2 BR loft condo. We were 5 minutes from Teton Village and 15 mins from downtown Jackson. We did not want the cacophony of the city yet enjoyed... More

We stopped by this location twice, the first day we didn't see any moose but the second day we were rewarded. There was a mother moose eating and a baby moose that was sleeping in some tall grass. Eventually the baby moose got up and started walking towards it's mother - it made my day. We did see other moose... More

Seeing moose on this trip was high on my wife's list of things to do during this trip. We took folks advice to drive down this road as the sun was rising. We saw a huge herd of elk by Teton Village. Within minutes of getting on the dirt road we saw the first of three moose for the day.... More

We did not see any moose in Yellowstone over several days, but we did see two on the Moose Wilson Road.

My main goal for visiting the Tetons was to see a moose. Fortunately we were able to see a female moose and her calf just a foot away from the road. The mother was in a pond next to the road and the calf kept crossing the road back and forth (I was very worried about it getting hit by... More

Must do this drive during the dusk and down time to see the moose and other wild life. Just a short drive and scenic too. Plan ahead if you are entering from the south side drive via Wilson town and continue to moose Wilson road that will merge into the moose junction. Moose are mostly found in the wet areas... More

We drove about 1 mile in and there is a turnout on the left side of the road. Overview of a creek and a little marsh. There was a moose and a baby moose(2-3 weeks old). We did not drive the entire road. We went about 5-6 miles. The road is mainly paved. It does get into a patch of... More

This is a scenic drive between Moose and Teton Village. Many people drive it during dusk to look for wildlife. There are pull-outs along the way to stop and view. We saw a huge owl (don't know what kind) and a moose. I can definitely see how it is a good area for wildlife viewing. Part of the road is... More
