Grand Teton National Park is Just Ahead’s newest smartphone audio tour, joining its fabled neighbor, Yellowstone National Park, in our growing collection of narrated guides to America’s most gorgeous destinations.
It’s hard to beat Grand Teton for scenic driving. The park has 152 miles of paved roads that deliver views of the majestic Teton Range, follow the course of the winding Snake River, and bisect the vast, sagebrush-dotted valley known as Jackson Hole. Just Ahead guides you along all of the most scenic routes, pointing out the marvels as they appear. And in between, you get tales of the park’s human history, dramatic geology, and abundant wildlife.
Speaking of wildlife, you have a chance of spotting such charismatic critters as elk, bison, moose, and bears—black bears much more likely than grizzlies—as well as 300-some species of birds, including bald and golden eagles. We tell you the best places to watch for them.
Some of our feature stories tell you about the man who skied down Grand Teton mountain, the derring-do of the park’s early mountaineers, and one of the most famous and successful horse rustlers of all time.
We also call out the best places for tent camping and RV camping, and the park’s fabled lodging: Jackson Lake Lodge, Signal Mountain Lodge, Jenny Lake Lodge, Colter Bay Cabins, and Climbers’ Ranch.
Grand Teton is a place that begs to be explored and experienced, which is why Just Ahead points out trailheads for some of the park’s best hikes, as well as out-of-the-way secret spots for breathtaking photography. And always, the jagged mountains tower above you, forming the world’s most photogenic backdrop.
With Just Ahead, you get a full, rich, engaging, and entertaining experience of one of the most inspiring landscapes in the world.
