I've visited two straight years, both times in October, so I cannot comment on other seasons. But this was a can't miss place for wildlife -- moose, beavers, bears in particular. Go early or late in the day, drive slowly, be prepared for other tourists, and be alert. Others are correct about the potholes (the size and abundance of which... More

There is great scenery from the mountains to the foliage to the wildlife. But much of the road is not paved and can be a bumpy ride. Not to be missed though.

Take a winding, sometimes dusty road between Teton Village and Moose, throw in the beauty of the forest and the chance of spying wildlife and you have an adventure. Also a good shortcut to airport or The Parks if coming from Teton Village. A few places to stop, but the National Park Service usually accommodates stopped cars and people trying... More

I'd been told about Moose Wilson Rd by some fellow photography buffs before I even got off the plane in JH. It definitely didn't disappoint with the wildlife & general scenery that was a bit off the beaten path!

We were lucky to sight a mom moose here with her baby in the brush behind her. A really special treat. This road often has wildlife on it.

Just did this earlier this week. Potholes are real axel breakers if you don't go real slow. My take is to start at the NORTH end which is the best part anyway and then turn around when you reach the Rockefeller nature preserve(there's a big sign and driveway on the left). The pavement goes past this for a little way... More

I never in all my life have seen such rude tourists as I have seen on this road. We twice saw photographers harassing the moose so bad they ran out in to traffic, with the mother and calf both nearly being hit by vehicles. Sadly, the wildlife enforcement seems to be understaffed and not aggressive enough towards these abuses which... More

moose, small bear, elk, nice fall foliage made this drive worth doing. Stop at Rockefeller Preserve and hike to Phelps Lake if possible. Saw a small black bear at the preserve at dusk

We travelled this road several times during our visit to Grand Tetons. It is addicting, because you always see something. You can only pull off at the graveled part of the road, where there are several parking spaces. We always saw photographers with their tripods and long lenses looking at something, and usually they were really nice and would show... More
