Hiking Trail · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Teton Pass is a high mountain pass in the western United States, located at the southern end of the Teton Range in western Wyoming, between the towns of Wilson, Wyoming and Victor, Idaho. The pass provides access from the Jackson Hole valley in Wyoming to the Teton Valley of eastern Idaho, including the access route to Grand Targhee Resort through Driggs, Idaho. To the south of the pass lies the Snake River Range.

The Teton Pass in Wyoming is designated as Wyoming Highway 22. At the state line, it becomes Idaho State Highway 33, then continues northwest to Victor and north to Driggs. The pinnacle of the pass is 8,431 feet (2,570 m) above sea level approximately 11 miles (18 km) out of Jackson. The maximum grade on the road is 10%, and several avalanche slide paths traverse the road along its length, including Glory Bowl slide area. During the winter months, the road is often closed in the early mornings for avalanche control by the Wyoming Department of Transportation. The area is popular for backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking.

The pass is a few miles south of Grand Teton National Park. Parts of the route to the pass are located in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest and in the Bridger-Teton National Forest. The small town of Wilson sits at the base of the east side of the pass, while Teton Village and the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski area are northeast of the pass.

  • We returned to Jackson from Idaho thru this pass. It was quite a drive; on par with the Beartooth Highway west of Yellowstone, and the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier. Great Views, including some...  more »
  • It was too crowded. Hotels are jammed up against one another. Disappointed. Should stay in Jackson Hole  more »
  • Day one in training for a peak in the Tetons, I hiked South and up from Teton Pass and did about a mile and a half, the moose in the photos, was actually a picture I took that morning running down by Wilson Wyoming but there is abundant wildlife!
  • Beautiful scenery.
