I hiked this 10 mile loop in late September, when there were not many people. There is not much gradient so it is a fairly easy, though long loop. There is a network of trails here, so you can do the whole loop out to...More

This 10-mile hike was a little more than we expected, but worth it! The views and the wildlife sightings were amazing. We even got to see trumpeter swans in flight!

I recently hiked this 8-10 miles loop trail in the Tetons. The hike is mostly flat with the majority of the trail passing through woods that provide some shade. The best part is the views from the point which are the best I saw throughout...More

We enjoyed this hike but it was very long. A round trip to reach hermitage point is at least 8 miles, plus anything else you do that day. We started around 9 and ended around 2 (I think) with a break for lunch. The views...More

The trail rides from Colter Bay use the same trails as hikers, for the most part. If you are on foot, you spend a lot of time stepping over and around the horse poop--apparently, no one cleans up. That said, it is a wonderful,shady walk...More

Chance to get away from people as you explore this area. The views of the lake and the mountains around it make for spectacular views

We arrived in Grand Teton on a perfect Saturday afternoon in late July. This is the absolute peak season there. The areas around Jenny Lake were packed beyond comprehension. I wondered if we would ever get a peaceful view of the jagged peaks across the...More
