Scenery

Beautiful ride at every turn. Going around Palisades Lake is beautiful. watch for Ospreys, dear and other wildlife. Between Swan Valley and Victor ID is just a BEAUTIFUL ride. Watch for a few rough spots where the road has slid. at Teton Pass the view from the top is worth the ride. Snake River Canyon has all kinds of wildlife watch for mountain goats, deer and elk. It runs along the snake river make sure you bring your camera.

Drive Enjoyment

Between Alpine and Swan Valley it is a few curves and nice rolling hills. Pine creek between Swan Valley and Victor is curvy towards the top there are place where the road surface is broken up a little. Otherwise all other road surfaces are good. Snake river canyon is sweeping curves. The whole ride has everything from flat roads to curvy hills.

Alpine has eating, bars, and lodging, fishing camping. In Swan Valley stop at Rainy Creek Store and have a square ice cream cone. In Victor has an historic Railroad Depot, and a hot dog stand jsut you make the right. Jackson has everything you might need, shopping, museums, bars, restaurants, white water rafting, camping, anything you might want. Even a cowboy shoot out during the summer.

I rode the segment from Victor, ID to Jackson, WY. What a great ride! There were some nice, twisties and great changes in elevation. Have to watch your speed on those downhill curves, but this was fun!
