Path of the Pronghorn Wildlife Corridor

Each fall and spring, pronghorn migrate 150 miles to Grand Teton National Park from their important winter range near Pinedale, Wyoming. For over 6,800 years, members of this indigenous herd travels from the Green River Basin, a place rich in water and hardy forage that fosters the largest gathering of pronghorn on earth, to migrate across four major rivers – the New Fork, the Green, the Gros Ventre, and the Snake to pass through a 9,000 foot pass in the Gros Ventre Mountains to return to Grand Teton National Park for the summer.

This great Pronghorn migration, named by U.S. biologists, is remarkable and one of the last long-distance animal migrations in the world. For a patient visitor, bring a spotting scope and a warm coat and be prepared to see wildlife appear anywhere along the nation's first federally designated wildlife migration corridor on route on US Highway 191/Wyoming Centennial Scenic Byway, six miles north of Pinedale to protect this exclusively American animal and several other species of Wyoming wildlife.
