Auto Touring Grand Teton National Park

Some of Grand Teton National Park's most impressive scenery can be seen by people auto touring the park's paved roads. There are also a few unpaved roads that provide spectacular views as they lead to scenic vistas and backcountry trailheads. Most roads in the park are closed during the winter season because of heavy snow.

US Highway 89/191 provides the main access to the park. It cuts through the park's eastern section and provides access to many points on Jackson Lake and other scenic areas.

Below we list the main scenic drives in the park.

The Teton Park Road cuts through the center of the park, providing access to Jenny Lake, the southern portion of Jackson Lake and many other scenic spots. It is a seasonal road, closed during winter.

The Jenny Lake Scenic Drive skirts Jenny Lake and provides spectacular views of the peaks; the scenic drive is one-way and begins just south of String Lake. Access the scenic drive by driving south at the North Jenny Lake Junction.

The Signal Mountain Summit Road climbs 800 feet (242 meters) to panoramic views of the Teton Range, Jackson Hole valley and Jackson Lake.
