PROGRAM OVERVIEW

LOCATION

Grand Teton National Park Sunset from Moose, WY

Grand Teton NP encompasses the Teton mountain range and a portion of the valley of Jackson Hole, protecting both the scenic beauty of the alpine environment and the historic setting of fur trappers and early western settlement.  The park and surrounding area offer an abundance of recreational opportunities including hiking, backpacking, and world-class mountaineering experiences.  The Snake River flows through the valley floor in the park and provides for fishing and boating outings.  A series of lakes along the base of the mountains (Jackson, Jenny, String, and Leigh Lakes) adds to the scenic beauty and photo opportunities of this high mountain setting.  The park attracts nearly four million visitors per year.

THE BRIDGER-TETON NATIONAL FOREST

At 3.4 million acres, the Bridger-Teton is the second largest National Forest in the United States outside Alaska. It lies in Western Wyoming, adjoining Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, and within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the largest remaining area of undeveloped land in the 48 conterminous United States. It is noted for its unusual scenery and natural features, large and diverse wildlife populations, and habitat for threatened and endangered species.

The Forest contains the headwaters of 4 major river basins: the Yellowstone (Missouri/Mississippi Basin); Snake (Columbia); Green (Colorado); and the Bear River (Great Basin). Seven major mountain ranges are found within the Forest Boundaries. These mountain ranges are part of the northern Rock Mountain and include part of the striking Teton Range and Wind River Mountains.

The Forest borders Jackson Hole, famous in the history of early explorers and fur traders, and winter home of the well-known Jackson elk herd. The Forest, with its Supervisor's Office in Jackson, is composed of the Jackson, Blackrock, Pinedale, Big Piney, Greys River and Kemmerer Ranger Districts.

THE COMMUNITY

The Town of Jackson is the county seat and the only incorporated municipality of Teton County . “Jackson Hole" as it's often called, refers to the whole area which is a 50 mile long valley surrounded by high mountains. 

Jackson is a popular tourism destination because of its proximity to Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, its unmatched scenic beauty, the world-class skiing, and its western character. For tourism information, including listing of lodging, restaurants, and shopping, please contact the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce at 307-733-3316 or on the web at Jackson Hole Chamber.

This spectacular valley in the mountains offers residents and visitors alike an unparalleled array of outdoor activities for year-round enjoyment. From skiing, snowmobiling, backcountry touring and dog sledding in the winter to hiking, rafting, fly fishing, mountain biking and rock climbing in the summer. There is recreational opportunity for everyone.
