Your 7-day entrance permit to Grand Teton also allows you entrance to Yellowstone National Park through its South Entrance. (If you go to Yellowstone first, your pass will allow you entrance into Grand Teton.) Since these two parks boarder each other, visitors often plan to visit both parks while they are in the area. Yellowstone’s road is a figure eight, with the entire route being 142 miles in size. The lower loop of this road is 96-miles in size. If you are planning on staying in Grand Teton, say in the Colter Bay area, and want to just drive to Yellowstone for a day, do not attempt to do more than this lower 96 mile drive. Even though you will have to skip many of the sites, this lower loop will still fill an entire day. View some of the geysers and hot pools on the west; and on the east, drive the Canyon road, as well as the road that leads to my favorite canyon over look, Artist Point.
Better yet, if you go to Grand Teton first, move to Yellowstone National Park and plan a minimum of three days, which will still not give you time to explore everything, but will at least allow you to spend a day on each of the main sides. Visit the west side for geysers and hot pools; the north for Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, and Lamar Valley in search of wildlife; and the East to explore the beautiful Canyon and Hayden Valley.
