In 1973 the Bridger and Teton National Forests merged and become one national forest encompassing nearly 3.5 million acres. The Teton part of the forest borders on both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It includes over 1.5 million acres and is located near the Continental Divide. The timber of the Teton Division of the forest includes Aspen, Englemann Spruce, Douglas fir, Alpine Fir, Whitebark, Limber Pine and Lodgepole Pine. The forest is home to many different types of wildlife, and you may even spot some Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep in the early morning or late evening hours.
The Bridger Division of the forest was named for the famous mountain man and explorer, Jim Bridger. It consists of tall mountains, alpine meadows and many pristine lakes. If you’re so inclined, you can also find miles and miles of trout streams, providing opportunities to catch Rainbow, Native Cutthroat, Golden, Brook, German Brown, and Mackinaw trout.
Wildlife in the Bridger-Teton forest is diverse. Summer visitors to the area will be treated to views of trumpeter swans, sandhill cranes, coyotes, bald eagles and elk, to name a few. Animals that may be more visible in the winter include moose, mule deer and bighorn sheep. Bridger-Teton also houses more than 355 species of birds.
