Star Valley to Yellowstone Scenic Highway

177.0 miles: 3 hours, 38 minutes

On the journey down US 89, you’ll pass through small towns as well as Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks. Stunning mountain backdrops will accompany you through most of the drive. Keep a sharp eye out in the forested areas for moose, elk and deer.


The gorgeous Red Mountains of southern Yellowstone National Park run beside US 89 with the Pitchstone Plateau rolling out on the other side. In Grand Teton National Park, the white-topped mountains line up behind beautiful Lake Jackson creating an exquisite, postcard-worthy sight, and in the southern part of the park Snake River winds in and out of view.
