Route description

The road is the primary route from Jackson, Wyoming to Teton Village and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, which is located just south of the national park border. The area along the road to the ski area was originally ranch land, but it has been progressively developed over the years.

The state highway designation ends at the Granite Canyon entrance to Grand Teton National Park.[3]

North of the park gatehouse, the road narrows and winds its way through a forested area along the edge of the mountains. A number of trailheads are accessible from the road, including the Death Canyon / Phelps Lake trailhead located about 5 miles (8.0 km) from the northern terminus of the state designation. This section of the road is closed to vehicular traffic seasonally, typically November to May.[4] In these months, the Parks Service classifies it as a "skier tracked road", available for skiers, snowshoers, and hikers.[4]

The road's terminus is the park's headquarters and visitor center.
