“Spectacular!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This is a very easy drive with spectacular views all along the way. Lots of places to pull over and take pictures. There are so many features to focus on: forest, Tetons, lakes, wildlife, and so on. Beautiful drive!

“Beautiful Vistas”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We drove this beautiful parkway several times during our visit to the Tetons. There are many turn offs and parking areas where you can view wildlife and view the mountains. The speed limit is anywhere from 25 to 45. You can do the speed limit and enjoy , but be prepared to get passed by all the folks who are in a big hurry.

“Beautiful Drive”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We would have loved to stop, but we were on this road just two days after it opened, which meant the trails were snow packed. That being said, its still a beautiful drive snow covered or not. Next time, hopefully the snow will be less and we can get out an explore.

“Take this drive in winter”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

This is a beautiful route any time of year, and we've driven it often in summer. This year, we visited the area in January, and it was even better. Besides the gorgeous vistas of snow-covered mountains, there's the added treat of frequent and close wildlife sightings. Drive carefully, especially in early morning or late evening. Close to, or even on the road were moose, bison, elk, and bighorn sheep. Keep watch toward the sky for trumpeter swans and bald eagles. The terrain is flat, so it's an easy drive. Don't miss it!

“John D Rockefller Jr Facility”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Easy yo get to. Well organized parking with a park ranger on duty. Close to Teton Village where we stayed. Beautiful drive to the Center via Teton National Park. Very clean. Educational for old and young alike about the surrounding area and nature. Rangers inside the building sat with youngsters and their parents helping them to do identification studies around the outside of the facilities, then noted in their journals. Excellent learning center. Lots of seating inside and out. Waterfalls, streams to walk along; goodhiking trails.
