3 Spots to Enjoy Top Sunset Views in Jackson Hole 

Jackson Overlook 

If you’re chasing a sunset like no other, follow the paved path up Signal Mountain Summit Road for one of the best sunsets in Grand Teton National Park. Stop when you reach the Jackson Overlook to enjoy the remarkable vistas of the Grand Tetons, Jackson Lake, and the Gros Ventres! Once the sun has set, head back down the mountain to enjoy dinner at the Signal Mountain Lodge and continue admiring the mountains.  

Snow King Mountain  

Another great spot to watch the sunset over the Teton Range is from the top of Snow King Mountain. Take a seat on a chair lift, enjoy a ride up the mountain, and take in an uninterrupted view of the valley. On your way up, be sure to look for the National Elk Refuge and spot the creek that flows through the Tetons and the Gros Ventres.

You may have seen Ansel Adams’ famous image of the Tetons towering over the Snake River and wondered where it was taken; now you have an answer! That breathtaking photograph was captured from the Snake River Overlook, and the view is even better in person! With beautiful colors painting the sky, rushing river waters, and a panoramic view of the Tetons, the Snake River Overlook might just be the best place to watch the sunset in Jackson Hole!
