Explore 17' Solar Eclipse Wyoming - view hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

With only two days until the solar eclipse, consider heading to Wyoming! In light (or lack thereof) the event, AllTrails has created a list of WY's best eclipse-viewing spots. Six WY State parks/historic sites, including Grand Teton National Park, fall in the path of totality. Nestled in a Teton background, spectators who venture to the park will experience the moon’s shadow racing towards them as the sun disappears among fleeting rays of pink and silver. . In Casper, The Astronomical League is holding its annual convention—that means there will be experts on hand to educate and provide insight on the astronomical phenomenon. Further East, the Gros Ventre Wilderness and Wind River Range boast some of the best hiking and backpacking in the country and are ideal for those who want to escape the crowds in the vast backcountry. With ample public land access, the lowest light pollution in the country, and eclipse celebrations galore—WY seems like the ideal place to be on August 21.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Quite the challenge in certain areas, but to each challenge, the reward is tenfold.

The scenery is unbeatable. We saw a mother and baby moose. If you are in Teton you HAVE to do Jenny Lake and Cascade Canyon trails!

We hiked to the fork in late September. The weather was perfect - mid 60s and sunny. A lot of folks head back after seeing Hidden falls. Don’t! At the very least walk about a mile past and into the canyon. The mountains looming over all is an astounding sight! Highlight of Teton!

Favorite Trail so far in the Tetons! Absolutely beautiful in the Spring

Did this spectacular hike to the junction. Next time to lake solitude. Inspiration point is good and fine, but it’s the canyon that’ll keep us coming back. Going in/out of forested patches only to be hit with the breathtaking mountain views again and again is something I’ll never forget. Crowds blissfully thin out once you get into the canyon.

We started at the south lot and went clock wise. If you go counterclockwise you will actually get better views of the mountain while hiking. We had to keep turning around to view them. Part of the trail was closed for reconstruction but they give you an alternate route which is very similar. Saw a bald eagle, no bears.

There was a bit of snow but nothing you can't do in boots.

We hiked around the lake counter clockwise and hit the waterfall. Great hike with sun and snow coming off the peaks. Well maintained Trail affords not having to look down for steps but enables you to take in the great views

This hike was so much fun. The views were breathtaking. The trial winded in and out of the woods making for an adventure I’ll never forget.
