Glacier Nat'l Park, Mt. to Jackson Hole,Wy

I have tried 3 different GPS services for a trip from Columbia Falls Mt to Jackson Wy. I get three different routes.
Is there anyone who has made this trip and can provide me with a good route? Because I am driving a big rig I don't want to try Teton Pass.

You definitely don't want to do Teton Pass. Instead, from Idaho Falls take Hwy 26 east into Hoback Junction, WY and then north to Jackson. It's a beautiful easy drive.

Fuel up in Hoback Junction as the stations in Jackson are a madhouse this time of year. If you do need groceries, there's a Smith's on the left and Albertsons on the right just south of the town of Jackson. There fuel stations, too, but we just find it easier with lots more room to do Hoback Junction.

Do you have a place to stay once hitting the Jackson area. I assume you'll be going to Grand Teton Nat'l Park. Colter Bay RV in the park is great for hookups. If you don't need hookups plan to stop at Gros Ventre campgroung in the park or further north next to Colter Bay RV is Colter Bay campground. We like Gros Ventre the best. Both have 300 non-reservable sites and rarely fill. Try to come in during the morning for the best selection for big rigs. Have a good trip!

When we left Columbia Falls last September we were going to West Yellowstone. We took US 2 east to US89 at Browning, then US89 south to Choteau, then US287 to pick up I-15 at Wolf Creek. Had a great ride through a large swath of rural Montana. If I recall, I think we did a Wally World CC overnight near Helena. From Wolf Creek you can take I-15 right into Idaho Falls, and US26 east as suggested by twogypsies.

Enjoy!!

I have done Teton Pass both ways from Jackson Hole.
If you have a nice diesel rig like yours with pac or VV turbo and Jake it's no big deal - in fact it's a great drive.
