As others have said, if you want wildlife, this is a must do.

We had not gone five minutes down the road and we had our first moose. It was our only moose, but it was the middle of the day, generally the worst time for wildlife.

And its a very pretty drive.

Some people warn about the road, but it was not too bad in our rental sedan.

We've been coming up here for years and checking this out...my husband used to live in the area. Wow...every time we drive the road we always see wildlife and are NEVER disappointed. The drive is so peaceful and beautiful and just something you must do when you are in the area. We see more wildlife here than we usually do in the Tetons just driving through. Go early in the morning or in the evening for the best wildlife sightings. This time around we saw deer, elk, a moose and even a curious fox, and some osprey up in their nests. Not overly crowded.

I will start by saying - you better go there! We found the road by tempting the back way into the park from Teton Village. If you are going to see large wildlife in GTNP it will likely be here (by the way many of the paid wildlife excursions were seen touring this area during our visit) Reminder much the road is in rough/verily improved surface. We managed in a rental car in August. As reported much of this area is closed in the winter so those of you planning a summer trip need to include this as a 1-1.5 hr wildlife excursion. Enjoy--

If you want to catch views of black bears, moose & mule deer this is the most likely road to travel. We were very successful over the course of three days in sighting bears and moose very close to the road.

A must see if you want to catch these creatures!

Nice little winding road - but you'll see everything here. We actaully saw a bear up in a tree, munching on leaves. A beaver den/dam. And don't miss the Laurence Rockefellar Preserve along the way!
