Fall Colors in October

Grand Teton in the fall runs from September through mid-October. Although you can’t predict the peak dates to see the fall colors, it usually happens around the 3rd week in September and continues through mid-October.

The Grand Teton Scenic Loop drive is 42-miles of stunning views. Here you can see an abundance of wildlife, exhibits, and majestic views of the Grand Teton Mountain Range.

Take a Scenic Drive

The bears will be foraging for food to get ready for winter hibernation so be extra cautious on the roads and trails. It’s exciting to see the moose at Grand Teton in the fall, especially the male moose with their large antlers.
