    HIKING & BIKING: One of the most unique features of the Grand Tetons National Park - other than the majestic snow-capped peaks that rise straight from the valley floor - are the more than 100 miles of paved roads designed with cyclists in mind. Bring your own or rent for approximately $50 a day from nearby Jackson, Wyoming.

    ALPINE ASCENT: While the majority of park visitors will enjoy the overlooks and hiking trails, the more adventurous will attempt to scale the higher elevations for a closeup view of the Teton Glacier. For those eyeing the latter, plan to train in advance and spend a little on a mountaineering guide company. There are several offering multi-day trips that will undoubtedly be memorable.

    SNAKE RIVER: After your bike ride and rappelling, how about a little rafting? From late May through late September you can book a guided tour through a number of companies that will give you amazing views of the mountain range as well as some of the park's wildlife: bald eagle, moose or beavers.
