I wouldn't advise that you take WY 22 (Teton Pass) unless you're really comfortable with a steep mtn. drive with 10% grades.

You can take 33 into Victor, ID but instead of 22 take 31 to Swan Valley and Hwy 26 into Alpine, then north into Jackson and Grand Teton Nat'l Park.

OR....from W. Yellowstone just drive through Yellowstone and south into Grand Teton Nat'l Park.

Both choices are good. If you come in from Jackson, just south of town are a couple big groceries and fuel stations if you need to re-supply.

Two gypsies thanks for advise. So I am assuming that I can drive 191 south through the park with no issues to Colter Bay Village? That would be 191 and 89? Is that part of the John D Rockefeller highway? My wife gets a little nervous, so want to take easiest route ! Appreciate the help.

As posted earlier, Teton pass is steep but doable. I've done it no problem in my 40' Class A, but I'm fairly used to mountain roads. Trade off going through Yellowstone is generally much slower due to traffic. No problems however with any size rig.

I never went over Teton Pass to get from W Yellowstone to Colter Bay, just take the main road through the park. Other than the summer tourist traffic stopping in the middle of the road to photograph wildlife, its an easy drive. This time of year traffic is much less. Yes its mostly 191, but sections of it are also labeled 89 or 287 or JD Rockefeller Hwy. Its the only main road from Yellowstone Park to Tetons, as long as you make the right (south) at Madison Junction, past Old Faithful, past West Thumb, past Lewis Lake, you can't miss Colter Bay Village.

West Yellowstone to Coulter bay through the park is a piece of cake. Good 2 lane paved road. Only hazard are the Bison, they own the road. We did the trip from Coulter to West Yellowstone last year in a 37 ft Bounder pulling a Colorado toad. Just Don't be in a hurry speed limit is 45 I think. It is really a nice drive.

Check Fires

News reports here in Montana yesterday said the south entrance to Yellowstone was closed due to fires. I wasn't listening to specifics, but please check prior to actually taking a route that way.

The national park web sites always give good updates to any issues - fires or various closings, road construction, etc. Always check them out before entering the parks anywhere. There is a lot of excellent information on other things, too, like campgrounds, things to do, etc.

Fire Info for all states (zoom out/in and click on a fire symbol and it will tell all about the fire and what to expect.

We've also driven though Yellowstone from West Yellowstone to get to Grand Teton through Yellowstone's south entrance. We did it early in the morning so we were treated to views of the park's wildlife and steam rising from the geysers into the cool morning air. Great photo ops!

As other said, this is a "piece of cake" route.
