Visit Grand Teton National Park

The sight of the jagged teeth of the Teton Range and Grand Teton National Park as you come over Togwotee Pass never fails to quicken the heart. The most scenic access to this spectacular national park runs through Wind River Country on Highway 287. This scenic byway parallels the Wind River Mountains, bisects the painted badlands of Dubois, and then rises over the Continental Divide through the turrets and spires of the Absaroka Mountains.

Grand Teton National Park is just one scenic drive of 60 minutes over Togwotee Pass from Dubois.Or extend your trip to circle the continental divide! Discover Wyoming’s Wind River Country and enjoy all this room to breathe before or after exploring Grand Teton National Park.

The Rockefellar Parkway

The Rockefeller Parkway connects Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. The late conservationist and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. made significant contributions to several national parks including Grand Teton.  Congress also named the highway from the south boundary of Grand Teton to West Thumb in Yellowstone in honor of Rockefeller.

Did you know that a large fault lies at the base of the Teton Range? Every few thousand years earthquakes up to a magnitude of 7.5 on the Richter Scale signal movement on the Teton fault, lifting the mountains skyward and hinging the valley floor downward. Courtesy of
