Anyone ever driven the Teton pass Hwy 22 heading north out of Jackson WY?

I know this is short notice but tomorrow July 10th I am leaving Dubois Wy heading towards Jackson WY then up the Teton Pass north pulling a 11,000 lb 5th wheel!! Any suggestions or ideas what it is like?

Thank you

You didn’t say what you’re pulling it with .... makes a big difference. Better be hefty for Teton Pass. Twisty and steep, up and down. Beautiful pass, not for the faint of heart in about any RV. Not many pullouts.

Go down to Alpine and take 26 instead. . beautiful drive without the 10% grade of Teton Pass.

We drive that Pass a couple times a year., we have done it in our Diesel Pusher as well. There is a stoping point at the top to pull off and take a break and allow the people behind you to pass. Take it slow on the way down.... or as previously suggested go the Alpine rout, It is a great drive, takes a little longer but a beautiful drive, make sure to keep an eye out for the Eagles that nest along the way !!!!

We did it last year with a ‘16 F350 pulling a 17.5K HitchHiker. It’s fine with a good engine or exhaust brake. 2nd gear all the way down and used brakes only to slow for curves. Used one turnout to allow traffic to pass. I would definitely go thru Alpine if I didn’t have the exhaust brake. It is a full 10% as I recall. Good luck.

There are so many warnings about taking RVs over the Teton pass via 22. Why take the chance you'll be the one with the problem. There is a big difference between can I, and should I.
As stated the route thru Alpine, is not that much longer, and it is super scenic.

I have no info about your route, but I am wondering where you are heading to from Jackson that Teton Pass is an option?

I was thinking of jumping into Idaho and driving around Yellowstone instead of through Yellowstone heading to Dubois from West Yellowstone. This route would take be onto Hwy 26 and through Alpine like several has suggested.

Excellent advice. Don't do Teton Pass!

We drove Teton pass in the early 2000s with a 99 F250 diesel and a 30 ft 5th wheel. No exhaust brake. We pulled into the turn out and shifted into low range! Then it was a piece of cake. 10% for several miles is pretty darn steep! I'd go a different route if I went that way again.

Teton Pass

I have driven this route many times and would suggest the alpine route if possible. The pass is do able but is not enjoyable in an RV. Alpine route very nice and very easy.

We were there last June and I would have to agree with twogypsies.

We are staying in Ashton ID which is about 60 miles from the West entrance.. I almost drove through the south entrance to the West entrance. Good luck and we are so glad we did not go through the Teton Pass
