Grand Teton National Park
At the north end of Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park preserves an extraordinary landscape rich with majestic mountains, pristine lakes and abundant wildlife. In the winter, the park’s main roadway is plowed and open for travel from the town of Jackson to Flagg Ranch near Yellowstone National Park’s south boundary. The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose is open year-round, except for December 25th. Cross-country and back-country skiing are winter highlights. In summer, visitors can enjoy a range of activities that include fly fishing, river rafting, kayaking, hiking, mountain climbing, horseback riding, camping, mountain biking, stand-up paddle boarding, water skiing, nature watching and more.
Imagine owning a property with this spectacular park as your neighbor.
Yellowstone National Park
It’s a wonderland, and the South Entrance is approximately 90 miles north of the town of Jackson. Established in 1872, Yellowstone is the first and oldest national park in the world, covering nearly 3,500 square miles of northwestern Wyoming as well as parts of Idaho and Montana.
Yellowstone is an important, self-sufficient ecosystem and home to a variety of free-ranging wild animals – including bison, elk, wolves, moose, and bears (both black and grizzly). Preserved within the park are Old Faithful and a collection of the world’s most extraordinary geysers and hot springs, as well as the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, which is 900 feet deep and a half-mile wide, with cascading waterfalls and brightly colored red and yellow walls, a result of geothermal and chemical reactions to the iron in the rock.
In winter, snow coach, snowmobile, and snowshoe adventures bring the park alive for visitors, while in summer visitors can enjoy fly fishing, hiking, camping, boating, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, horseback riding, nature tours, and more.
With easy access to hundreds of miles of roads and even more (seemingly endless!) backcountry trails, Yellowstone is a powerful, stunning, priceless national resource that everyone should see. It’s one of the last places in the world that’s truly alive. But words and descriptions only go so far – ultimately, Yellowstone begs to be experienced, explored, and discovered.
Bridger-Teton National Forest
Easily accessed in Jackson Hole, Bridger-Teton offers more than 3.4 million acres of public land for outdoor recreation enjoyment. With its pristine watersheds, abundant wildlife and immense wild lands, these forest lands comprise a large part of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem – the largest intact ecosystem in the lower 48 States. Offering about 1.2 million acres of designated Wilderness, over 30,000 miles of road and trails, and thousands of miles of unspoiled rivers and streams, the Bridger-Teton offers something for everyone.
