Alpine is located at the end of the Snake River Canyon , 36 miles southwest of Jackson Hole. The Town is also known as Alpine
Junction. As it marks the point where US Route 89 & US Route 26 turn in opposite directions.Three Rivers come together in the
vacinity of Alpine; The Snake, The Salt & The Greys. All there flow together to make up the Palisades Reservior.
Alpine sits at the north entrance to the Greys River Road. It is a popular location for winter activities, including some of the finest
snowmobiling and backcountry skiing on the continent. Average snowfall can exceed 500 inches. Nearly endless terrain and lack
of people draw the visitors from a much more crowded Jackson Hole Area.
The Grey's River Area offers over 471,000 acres of National Forest with tons of recreational possibilities: kayaking,whitewater rafting,camping,fishing,hunting,boating and countless miles of trails for hiking, horseback riding,dog sledding, 4 wheeling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
Just south of town there is a wetland/waterfowl viewing area. Where you can see pelicans,osprey,eagles,swans,ducks and geese.
A little closer to town is the Alpine Feed Ground wich draws as many as 1,000 Elk from November to April.
