Getting Here and Around
Coming from Yellowstone or Grand Teton national parks, you enter Jackson from the north on U.S. 191, passing the sagebrush flats of the National Elk Refuge. West of town, Hwy. 22 comes in from Idaho, over 8,431-foot Teton Pass; those entering Jackson from the "back side" of the Tetons should expect snowy conditions as late as June. Reach Jackson from the south via U.S. 191 from Pinedale or U.S. 89 from the Star Valley. The two routes merge 13 mi south of town at Hoback Junction. Driving in Jackson can be frustrating, particularly in the pedestrian-heavy and traffic-clogged downtown area. Best to hoof it, ride the free and frequent START buses, or rent a bike from a local outfitter—a fleet cyclist can cross town end-to-end in fifteen minutes.
