We spent four days in The Grand Tetons which afforded us several opportunities to drive the loop. Each time the light was different, the clouds were different, and there was something new to see. Due to the relatively short length it was easy to do over and over. The pull-outs are well marked and in just the right place for... More

The name of the attraction says it all: 42-mile scenic loop. Every twist and turn brings you to another spectacular view. Take frequent stops to enjoy the scenery.

I loved loved loved the drive. We stopped at so many points. I loved the oxbow bend view. This is a must if you have lesser time.

This drive was my favorite part of Grand Teton NP. There was a plethora of scenic overlooks, and great short hikes. Sadly, the short hike to Hidden Falls was closed when we were there, but the views of the Tetons made up for it, even in the rain. To fully explore this loop, excluding day hikes, you need at least... More

We had no idea what to do here after spending 2-1/2 days in Yellowstone (which was very well researched). We stopped at the Ranger Station and this loop was recommended to us. The map had stops listed and it was a pure delight! It took us six hours of leisure driving, stopping and viewing. A wonderful experience.

The awesomeness of the Grand Teton National Park cannot be overstated. I drive about half the scenic loop on my south from Yellowstone and on my way to Idaho through the Teton Pass. Like Yellowstone, you could easily spend a week in the park. It's almost surreal.

This loop is breathtaking !! My husband and I also drove up to yellowstone and did the lower loop. I would take the 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive of the Tetons over yellowstone any day. (just my opinion) :) I highly recommend pulling over where ever you can and taking the time to explore and sight see. One thing I didn't... More

What a scenic drive! It’s full with dramatic views! It’s one of the best loop drives we’ve ever taken with my boyfriend! It’s 42 miles long. We also went to the great Craig Thomas Visitor's Center on the way and took a Grand Teton Guide which was so helpful for our journey.
