Map of Jackson Hole

The name Jackson Hole refers to an entire valley in the northwest corner of Wyoming, surrounded by mountains.  Originally named after an 1820s fur trapper, Davey Jackson, it's 48 miles long and between 8 to 15 mile wide.  The northern end of the valley serves as the southern gateway to Yellowstone National Park and is about 6,779 feet above sea level.   The town of Jackson (whose name is often confused with the valley, Jackson Hole) sits at the southern end of the valley, at an elevation of about 6,069 feet.  See our article on "Getting Oriented" for more information.
