Jackson Hole Maps
Jackson Hole in true western spirit is in a word, vast. And with a town, a region, and a resort all carrying the name Jackson, at times, things can get confusing.
Jackson Hole is the entire area. The hole is made up of the valley at the base of the Teton Mountain Range. The hole - or the valley - begins six miles south of Yellowstone National Park and tapers down to the width of the Snake River south of Jackson.
Jackson is the major town within the valley, and was founded in 1894 when the post office was established. Many other holes were named in the intermountain west during the 1800's but few were marked on maps.
Given Jackson Hole's size, as well as that of the surrounding wilderness, different maps can serve different purposes. If you prefer print maps, please stop by one of our visitor centers - you can even speak with an agent who can share advice for your itinerary.
