Grand Teton National Park Sights

Oxbow Bend

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 11/05/2013

Fodor's Review

This peaceful spot overlooks a quiet backwater left by the Snake River when it cut a new southern channel. White pelicans stop here on their spring migration (many stay on through summer), sandhill cranes and trumpeter swans visit frequently, and great blue herons nest amid the cottonwoods along the river. Use binoculars to search for bald eagles, osprey, moose, beaver, and otter. The Oxbow is known for the reflection of Mt. Moran that marks its calm waters in early morning.

Don't Miss!

Absoulutely beautiful, especially at sunset. I recommend getting there 1hr before sunset and enjoying the view and wildlife. Great photo-op. Also be on the look out for moose in the area.
