Avoid surprise encounters by being alert and making noise.

A traditional cattle drive took place early Saturday morning. Pinto Ranch wranglers herded approximately 290 cattle from their pastures outside of the park to summer pasture lands at Elk Ranch Flats. The cattle drive is a reminder of Jackson Hole's ranching history which persists to this day.

In accordance with the 1950 Grand Teton National Park enabling legislation, certain historic grazing...

Please be cautious when around bodies of water, and aware of high water conditions. High water means swifter and stronger currents, as well as rapidly changing conditions. Only those with experience piloting watercraft on dynamic braided rivers should attempt to float the Snake River at this time.

The Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Center is open for the season! You may notice it looks a little different this year as it no longer has a front porch roof.

The porch roof collapsed during the winter under the snow. Contractors removed the damaged roof this May and repaired the wall so you would never know anything happened. Building safety checks have been completed and you're invited...

Hiking Update: Warm temperatures (in the 70s) have finally come to the valley! However, you don't have to get too far into the backcountry to find evidence of winter. Expect to find snow on any trails that are shaded by trees, on north facing slopes, or above 7500 feet.

Please be prepared for these slippery conditions before heading out on a hike. Happy Trails!
