Good scenic drive. The viewpoint have a great view of the Teton valley. However, DON'T expect a good view of the Grand Teton mountain range. We got lucky and saw a bull elk up close on the drive. Got within 25 feet of it. That...More

Great views from the first landing to be" topped" at the top landing. Very enjoyable! It was bit smokey the day we were there, fires in Idaho, Montana and Canada.

Take the Signal Mountain road to the top and park. Follow the trail that leads to the overview. You will enjoy a great overview of the Grand Teton range of mountains. Enjoy!

It's worth the trip all the way to the top despite the annoying wifi/cell tower at the top. The views are wonderful. There's two places to stop for a view and both are worth parking and getting out at. Great place for a panoramic photo.

The view is awesome, plus , on the way down, we saw a bear and a mule deer. The deer was squatting down, doing his usiness right by the road. What a hoot!!

This 4.5 mile ride is car friendly. There are 2 stops, the first offering iconic views if the Tetons and Jackson Lake, the 2nd a valley view. Not busy along the way to the top either. Mark this a must stop along your trip.

This is really a MUST SEE for you. It's worth the drive up the winding mountain path. This is where we saw another elk by the side of the road and it was still there when we left with people continuing to stop and photograph...More

I don't know if the road is closed at night. The NPS website doesn't tell. I guess the best is to ask directly to the rangers through their website.

These are called "slash piles" and are used for controlled fires as a form of fuel reduction. In areas where infrastructure is built, the trees are thinned out and wood piled. Once there is snow on the ground the piles will... More
