Grand Teton

TOP 10 THINGS TO DO

Grand Teton

Where to stay

Jenny Lake Lodge

In the park: Jenny Lake Lodge— an incredible location at the park back by beautiful accommodations, activities and dining options.

In town: Try Trail Creek Ranch for a private ranch experience or the Huff House Inn for a B&B style stay in town with affordable rates and amazing food!  

WHERE TO HIKE

String Lake

It’s low-key and incredibly beautiful. If you’re more experienced, check in with the rangers about some of the best backcountry trips or better yet, hike & mountaineer Grand Teton itself! 

MUST SEE LANDMARK

Schwabacher's Landing

It’s essentially the best parts of the park all combined in one accessible spot.  

WHERE TO SEE SUNRISE/SUNSET

Curtis Canyon

A personal favorite of mine for our nearby public lands, the views are incredible of the valley and Tetons. You’ll need a 4wd vehicle, as the road tends to get gutted!

QUINTESSENTIAL SCENIC DRIVE

HWY 89

In the winter, HWY 89 which is one of the only roads open in the park but will take you from one end to the other for some amazing views and creature sightings! In the summer, cruise the Teton Park Road!

SECRET SPOT

Teton Pass

Most people cruise over it if at all and head on their way, but there are tons of amazing hikes in the summer and skis in the winter (trained & avalanche prepared aware skiing only!).  Granite Hot Springs is another worthy visit!  

WHERE TO REFUEL

Picas

It’s our favorite local dirtbag dig for the best  Tex-Mex food, super low-key easy going feels and great people. In the summer, the patio is the best in the evening! And, the guac and chips are out of the world. Be the ultimate local and get a “wet burrito”.  

WHERE TO ENJOY A COLD ONE

Trapper Grill

A casual spot to grab food and drink with incredible views of the park. Don’t miss snagging one of Jackson’s local brews when you’re in town, though!  

SELFIE SPOT

Antler Arches or Mormon Row

In town, the antler arches are an endless favorite. For a more wild feel to your selfie style, head out to Mormon Row for amazing old barns & a straight shot view of the Tetons.  

RADICAL ACTIVITY

River Rafting

In the summer, join one of the local rafting crews and hit the Snake River, it’s our favorite off-day activity. Grab a Jackson classic “sloshie” afterwards. In the winter, hit Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for some insane skiing. In the park itself, join one of JH’s Ecotours to learn about the landscape and creatures that make the park so incredible.
