No. Grand Teton and Yellowstone are both within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, but they are distinct parks with incredibly different geologies. Shortly after leaving the Tetons, you'll recognize a dramatic shift in the landscape from craggy peaks to flowing hills and wide-open wilderness punctuated by rocky buttresses along the 7-mile John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway that connects them.
Despite its smaller size, Grand Teton is still a prominent, must-see tourist destination. Its panoramic scenery and opportunities to view wildlife rival those of Yellowstone. The highlights of Grand Teton are easily viewed by car or shuttle along the 45 mile “inner road” towards the peaks for which it is named. However, the Park’s true majesty is only truly realized by more adventurous souls who wander its hundreds of miles of backcountry trails that weave through the park. Yellowstone is 7 times larger than Grand Teton and offers its own natural geologic phenomena which can be viewed by developed trails, pathways and scenic routes, and other backcountry opportunities. Both national parks present sight-seers with unique experiences to view wonders unrivaled by other natural attractions.
Yes, there is cell service in the developed areas in the park. Additionally, the Forest Service has plans to erect 9 cell towers along the 45-mile length of the mountain range to provide signal to the entirety of the park. These plans are still waiting on approval and have yet to be put into action. For now, you can expect cell service around Jenny Lake, Flagg Ranch, and the Jackson Hole valley. However, service is not always available in the far reaches and deep canyons of the park. Grand Teton's backcountry is considered to be the most remote territory in the continental United States.
