Grand Teton National Park


Wyoming

Scenic Drives Grand Teton Nationalpark, Wyoming

Many turnouts along park roads offer exhibits on park geology, wildlife and plants. Turnouts also provide safe places to enjoy scenic views and take photographs. Do not stop in the middle of the road to view wildlife.

The Teton Park Road follows the base of the Teton Range from Moose to Jackson Lake Junction.

The Jenny Lake Scenic Drive skirts Jenny Lake and provides spectacular views of the peaks; the scenic drive is one-way and begins just south of String Lake. Access the scenic drive by driving south at the North Jenny Lake Junction.

The Signal Mountain Summit Road climbs 800 feet (242 meters) to panoramic views of the Teton Range, Jackson Hole valley and Jackson Lake.

Watch ALWAYS for large animals on the road. Drive slowly at night. Elk, bison, and mule deer frequently migrate at night and may be difficult to see. Moose use roads as travel corridors. Hitting a large animal at highway speeds has resulted in fatal accidents. Careful driving protects you and the wildlife. Always wear your seatbelt.
