Grand Teton National Park is located in the northwest of Wyoming, south of worldfamous Yellowstone National Park, its big neighbour. The park was established much later though compared to Yellowstone, only in 1929. Although Grand Teton can be visit as a daytrip from Yellowstone if you are short on time, spending a week alone is possible as well, especially if you go on one of the beautiful backcountry hikes.
Generally the park itself is open 24/7, 365 days a year, but not that during the wintermonths (November to April) many trails, lodging and other facilities are closed. Best time is from May to October, when you can go to most places by car.
