This stop is a must see if you are in the Grand Teton National Park. There was plenty of parking when we arrived late afternoon, but the lot is small and right off the road. We did not see any wildlife but the views of the lake are spectacular and there are plenty of photo opportunities. We did not see any wildlife as advertised but you are able to stop right off the road.

Lovely quick stop to stretch your legs and take a photo of the beautiful scenery. No restrooms though!

This is located halfway between Jackson Wy and the southern entrance of Yellowstone. It is of course, one of many places and or ways you can stop to view/appreciate the Teton mountain range. What makes this place unique in viewing the Tetons….. in the morning, when looking east towards the mountains, on a clear day, you can see the reflection of the Tetons in the Snake River.

How long did we stop, 15 minutes.

Beautiful scenery for photos. There is a turnout on the road, so you can get out and snap some photos. It is worth a quick stop to see the River and the mountains on this curve in the road. Lovely.

Went to Jackson with a large group of good friends. We discovered this place driving through the park and pulled over on the side of the road (realized afterward there is a small turn-out/lot, too). We walked down the small embankment to the water's edge and ended up spending 2 hours just sitting there talking and enjoying the insanely beautiful view. Of the 5 days we spent in Jackson, those 2 hours here are among the most memorable.

Great view of Snake River with pelicans and quiet, peaceful scenery. It's one of the easiest lookout points to get to.

This is the iconic location for Grand Teton with a beautiful view of both the river and of the Mountains. It is best to see it in the morning

I honestly felt a touch underwhelmed by this spot as its often touted as one of the best spots for photography for the mountains, but I honestly found it to not be in my top 5 in terms of some other spots I'd put above it, like the Snake River Overlook, the John Moulton Barn, and there's a spot near the Cathedral turnout near String Lake that was also really great. Anyway, I just didn't find the shot here I was hoping for.
