Grand Teton National Park Information
Grand Teton National Park is located in Jackson Hole’s backyard. It is named after the Grand Teton, the largest peak in the Teton Range. French speaking trappers named the mountains ”Les Trois Tetons” (the three teats), which was later shortened to The Tetons. The youngest range in the Rocky Mountains, the Tetons rise almost 7,000 feet above Jackson Hole. Grand Teton National Park has become very popular for its abundant mountaineering and hiking opportunities. The park has several beautiful lakes and streams as well. The well known Snake River is noted for world renowned trout fishing. The park is one of the few places to catch the Snake River Fine Spotted Cutthroat Trout. Visiting Grand Teton National Park is an easy half or full day trip from the Town of Jackson, and offers an endless variety of adventures for young and old alike.
