Anyone in the area, whether having been there for a lifetime or for the first time, should check out the views from Sawtelle Peak. The views from the top of this mountain are the closest you'll be to having a birds-eye view without being in a plane. On clear days, one can easily see the distinct features of the jagged Grand Tetons in Wyoming to the south 60 miles away. Folks are often amazed at how large Henry's Fork River and Island Park Reservoir are. You never get a feel for their size amongst all the trees! One can look down onto Henry's Lake with a glimpse of Hebgen Lake over the next ridge. The Red Rock Lakes are hidden behind Red Rock and Nemesis Mountains, but the Red Rock River can be seen snaking through the green grassy fields off in the distance. This trail is located in Island Park, Idaho, 30 minutes from West Yellowstone and the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. If traveling through this area in the dry summer months, check out this trail. The views here may even rival your trip through Yellowstone and a whole lot less traffic.
