My wife and I did this loop in October, 2014. It was an adventure of a lifetime. The Teytons are breathtaking!

We have our trip planned for June this summer 2015, first night Jackson, second West Yellowstone, three/four Cody, fifth Lander and then home. Debating on route from West Yellowstone to Cody, Wyoming. Either straight across from Norris Junction to Canyon and down to the Lake and over to Cody or head north at Norris Junction to Mammoth Hot Springs and around loop over and south to Canyon? Any thoughts

I'm glad you asked as I've ridden all of this as it is my "backyard." The most exciting route to get to Cody from West Yellowstone, if you want to stay in the park, is heading to Mammoth, then east to Tower, then south to Canyon and out to Cody. The ride near Mount Washburn is by far one of the best parts of the park for motorcyclists, which you will pass if you head this way.

However, the most scenic and most amazing ride to get to Cody is through the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway, which means you'll need to exit the park at Silver Gate, at the northeast entrance, and make your way towards the Beartooth Pass. There is a turn off at the base of the pass, way before you start climbing, that takes you headed southeast on the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway. Many of us locals call the Chief Joseph our favorite routes around here.

That said, of the all the entrances to the park, Cody is the most scenic. There is about 16 miles outside the park entrance at Cody that offer up some terrific scenery in the form of colorful rock formations. Nothing special in terms of highway turns, etc. I always wonder why the park planners didn't include that section inside the park.

Hope that helps.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading the article and all the comments. I'm riding a 2012 Harley-Davidson FXDF out to Yellowstone this August from the Seattle area. I plan to camp for five days in the West Thumb area (Grant Campground) and will ride each day to points of interest. I was already going to ride down to Jackson, but now I will add the loop around the Tetons. I'll also add more cold weather laundry in my bag after reading some of these posts. Thanks again.
