Yes. While trails provide the most rewarding experience in the heart of the Tetons, at least two roads over the Tetons exist. Teton Pass is a highly traveled route at the southern edge of the Tetons between Jackson, Wyoming and Victor, Idaho that ascends to 8,432 feet and offering amazing views of Teton Valley and Jackson Hole. At the Northern end of the range, a 47.2 mile, largely dirt road extends between Flagg Ranch just outside of Grand Teton National Park all the way to Ashton, Idaho. The often bumpy route passes several backcountry lakes and offers dispersed camping and trail access to remote areas in the Greater Teton ecosystem.
About 6.9 miles. Yellowstone is separated from Grand Teton National Park's northern boundary only by the short and scenic John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway. The 24,000 acres connecting the two national parks was dedicated to Rockefeller for his contributions to Grand Teton National Park and others.
About 6.9 miles. Grand Teton National Park's northern boundary is separated from Yellowstone by a narrow band of wilderness known as the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway. The 23,700 acres connecting the two national parks was dedicated to Rockefeller for his contributions to Grand Teton National Park and others, and represents the ecologies of both parks and marks a transition zone between them.
The scenic drive from the south entrance of Grand Teton National Park in Moose, Wyoming to the transition into John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway at the park's northern fringe takes a little less than one hour without stops. Many take what's known as "the inner road" to drive close to the mountains in one direction, and exit the park in Moran to loop back toward Moose on "the outer road" for scenic variety and to shave a few minutes off the return journey. Others merely pass through on the way to Yellowstone, which is only about 6.9 miles from the north edge of Grand Teton National Park.
You can drive the length of Grand Teton National Park in under an hour, but locals are fond of saying they'll never see everything the Tetons offer. For a light experience, plan for one to three days. To go deeper in the mountains and experience more of a mountain wilderness trip, a week or more in prime hiking season (June through September) is recommended.
Jackson, Wyoming is 3.41 miles south of Grand Teton National Park. Often mistakenly called "Jackson Hole" after the valley it resides in, the city itself has a popluaiton of about 10,000 people. Jackson has a vigorous economy supported by tourism, the arts, and outdoor recreation. The iconic elk-shed antler arches in Jackon's town center are a must-see for many tourists.
