The Teton Scenic Byway runs along the western slopes of the spectacular Teton Range. It’s a 70-mile trip that includes breathtaking vistas, rivers, historic sites and access to the Grand Targhee Resort. In the Teton Valley there’s even a bike trail that runs parallel to the byway and an annual balloon festival in the quaint town of Driggs. Further north along this route the Upper Snake River Valley is full of fields of potatoes and other crops.
