“Not many scenic roads like this one....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 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.
