What a view!

This is quite a drive from the main loop road through the park, but is definately worth it for the views from the top!

Lovely drive winding through the woods to a couple of overlooks. Great photo opportunities at both overlooks. Very windy at the top on the day we were there. Worth doing if you have the time.

We did this drive before leaving the park in the morning of early June. Of course, the scenery is beautiful! BUT... beware of the mosquitoes! My dad and husband went up to the very top while the rest of us stayed in the vehicle in the parking lot. And to see them racing back down to get back in the... More

We just happened on this road and we were so glad we took the detour. The road up to the peak is well-maintained. There is ample parking at the peak and the view is spectacular.

Take a drive to the summit for a spectacular sunrise ( on a clear morning) and panoramic views. The road is slightly steep and winding to the top. It may feel like you will never get there. But stay the course and you will be rewarded with great scenery in a tranquil setting.

We brought our lunch with us to this spot and scored even finding a picnic table. It's a cautious drive up and down, with the occasional speeder going up and down too fast, so be careful. Other than that, worth every moment.

A great road for views towards Jackson Hole and Jackson Lake. Can be good for wildlife if you get there early before it gets too busy. Dusky Grouse often by the verge near the summit and Ruffed Grouse at lower elevations. Usually close Mule Deer by the road.

We drove up here to see the view and were glad we did. From the top you can get almost a 360 degree view of the lake and the surrounding area. The trails are easy to walk and parking isn't too bad.
