Grand Teton National Park Travel Guide: 314 reviews and 925 photos

It's hard to believe this park is overlooked by so many and just a route to visit its famous northern neighbor Yellowstone. The scenery is outstanding and some of the best I've seen in the U.S. A mountain range I will never forget rising abruptly from the Jackson Hole Valley all angles and viewpoints stunning. In addition, the reflective lakes, streams, abundant plants, trees and wildlife all add to the natural beauty of the area. Not a place I would tire of as there are numerous hiking & boating oppotunities.

We spent part of a day driving through the park to Yellowstone, then 3 full days towards the end of our weeklong trip. There is so much of the world to explore but this is one area I'd definitely return to.

Admission to the park is $20 per vehicle for 7 days. It includes a park service map and admission to Yellowstone as well. You will be given another map of Yellowstone if you visit.

The Grand Teton name was derived from French Canadian trappers who named them three breasts or Les Trois Tetons.

View from Signal Mountain Lodge.

    Ann, thanks for the tips and photos of GT. I'll be there this time next month and am getting rather excited about the trip. Never had heard of the Chapel of the Sacred Heart. Looks like a must see!

    If it weren't for the view from Leeks I would not return. In my opinion, when I worked in the park in 1196 and 1997 the Pizza was better.

    A nice tour of the main stops in the Park. What is amazing is really how small this range is when you are on top;-]

    Is this the church that was used in the film "Spencer's Mountain" If you haven't seen it you shoul rent it from your local library. It is filmed in GTNP with henry fonda.
