Travel + Leisure: 10 Scenic National Park Drives Everyone Should Do at Least Once

According to a recent article in Travel + Leisure, these scenic drives are worth the trip and it is no surprise Signal Mountain Summit Road in Grand Teton National Park made the list.

Grand Teton National Park is home to the tallest peaks in the 40-mile long Teton Range, the valley of Jackson Hole, lakes, meadows, wildlife, hiking trails, and alpine terrain. Bighorn sheep, elk, moose, bears, mule deer, pronghorn, and bison thrive in the park. Things to do include mountaineering, fishing, hiking, biking, camping, horseback riding, and in winter, skiing, snowshoeing, and snow activities.

Scenic Drives

Grand Teton National Park isn’t large at 484 square miles, so visitors can take several scenic drives to enjoy the variety and beauty of the park. Jenny Lake Loop Road takes drivers along the shore of the pristine lake at the foot of the Tetons. The Moose-Wilson Road drive starts at the park’s entrance just past Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

If You’re Not a Hiker

From Signal Mountain Summit Road, several overlooks let you see in every direction for a panorama of the Tetons and Jackson Hole, with views of herds of elk, moose, or bison.
