The Grand Teton Range erupts dramatically from Jackson Hole and Teton Valley in jagged spires of granite climbing as much as 7,000 feet from the valley floor.

Grand Teton National Park contrasts nearby Yellowstone's often quiet beauty with magnificence that's impossible to deny. However, the western slope of the Teton Range (Teton Valley) makes access to the peaks less straining by spreading the climb out over the foothills absent on the opposite slope.


While many choose to drive through Grand Teton National Park, you'll find much greater rewards if you take the time to explore the park. You'll be able to find endless trails, see magnificent wildlife, try your hand at kayaking or canoeing around Leigh Lake and String Lake, and discover backcountry lakes sparkling in the mountains.

Death Canyon cuts a jagged "V" into the Tetons at Phelps Lake. You can take a boat ride across the pristine Jenny Lake to access the thundering Hidden Falls. Put on the water yourself at Jackson Lake for fishing or wakeboarding under the Tetons. Watch swans, moose, eagles, otters, bears, and osprey at Oxbow Bend.

And all that's only scratching the surface. You'll discover more around every corner.

From Teton Valley Cabins, you'll be viewing the Grand Teton’s summit. But to enter the park you either need to hike into the mountains or drive over Teton Pass and through Jackson.

The drive to Grand Teton National Park takes about an hour to the southern entrance.
