A 96-mile, mostly gravel road up the Greys River, a rushing mountain stream that separates the high Wyoming and Salt River ranges. This drive follows Greys River all the way upstream to its headwaters at Tri-Basin Divide. The Greys River has carved a narrow valley between the Wyoming and Salt River ranges. Although the ranges have two different names, they are really one large mountain mass. Unlike the Tetons and other mountains not very far to the north around Jackson, these mountains remain uncrowded and relatively undiscovered. They rise to a high point of 11,363 feet at Wyoming Peak, have thick forests, clear trout streams, and even a few lakes.
The mountains are visited mostly by local residents. This drive lies largely in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the large forest that encompasses several mountain ranges in this area of Wyoming, including parts of the Wind River, Gros Ventre, and Absaroka mountains. Special attractions: Greys River, Salt River Range, Wyoming Range, Bridger-Teton National Forest, Lander Cutoff of the Oregon Trail, hiking, fishing, scenic views. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
