HikingGreat!Rocky

Hiking the Teton Crest Trail was incredible!! It was not easy and I had to push myself each day to continue the hike. We did the hike in 4 days but when I do it again I would add one more day to make it a little more enjoyable. One day we did 11.5 miles to get to the camp site. Also you need permits to camp in the park and they go fast so get to town early. I am now in love with hiking and can not wait for the next adventure.

had to regretfully pull out from doing the trail because the smoke is terribly bad right now there. fair warning for anybody currently interested in this hike. what makes this trail is the expansive teton views and right now you can barely see them standing in front of them. super bummed but my lungs will thank me later. hoping for clear skies soon

BackpackingGreat!

Loved it!! Well marked which is very important to me. Varied terrain. Took the Bridger gondola up and then hiked to Corbits, past Marion Lake to right outside the park at fox creek pass for night 1. No water from Marion Lake for another like 7 miles so had to carry a boatload of water to the campsite (about 1 mile). Second day was relatively easy to Sunset lake but the final hour is kinda killer going up the switchbacks. The lake and camping at Sunset lake was awesome! Took a dip to cool off and got an early start the next morning which was the longest. 2 miles to hurricane pass views which were stunning then happy to go all downhill, about 13 miles after back to Leigh lake. All in all, 8 hrs day, 5 hrs day 2, and 8 hrs day 3. So gorgeous

Amazing trip. Started at Teton Village, went up Granite Canyon trail to Upper granite campground. Dozens of down trees blocking the trail. Had snowed the night before on 9/6 so the campground was covered in snow. Super cold night, woke up to frozen shoe laces. 2nd night in Death canyon shelf, third night in South fork cascade, 4th night in lower paintbrush campground to String Lake. Cold nights and sunny days, no bugs, bunch of marmots, refreshing lakes. 45 miles with 9k elevation gain. Epic scenery.

Did this over 4 days, but started at Granite Canyon TH because the tram isn’t running this summer. Permit was for middle granite night one - it was a pretty long 10 mile all uphill day, but doable. Alaska basin night 2 was pretty crowded. Also came out over paintbrush divide instead of cascade canyon which was definitely the right choice! You get great canyon views in the north/south fork areas and paintbrush is awesome. Definitely makes the last day way harder but views are very worth it. Recommend parking at the string lake TH, not Jenny Lake as the latter is really crowded. Overall so amazing, highly recommend. Hard work though!

HikingGreat!

Terrific hike! With the aerial tram out we started at the Granite Canyon trailhead ~5 minutes up Moose Rd. Highly recommend that instead of taking the gondola -- it's much less steep, and more scenic personally! August 16-23 we had amazing wildflowers most of the hike. Bugs weren't nearly as bad as we thought they'd be, especially near all the lakes. By the time bugs got bad we were ready to get in the tent for the night. There's hardly any shade from Marion Lake to South Fork Cascade Canyon. Be prepared for some scraped legs if you wear shorts; many parts of the trail (particularly GC) had brush overhanging the trail. We only had one rainy night/morning in 8 days, but that might've been lucky--the day after we came out the weather returned to the classic afternoon thunderstorms. Oh, and pack superglue in your first aid kit—I had two nails split from the dry air, for the first time ever. MAKE SURE you bring a poo shovel, the ground is HARD so it's not as easy to dig poo holes as it is out east. Leave no trace friends :) And enjoy! It’s a beautiful blast!! We spent quite a while on the trail—camping as well as backpacking, and hitting extra highlights along the way. Day 1: Granite Canyon to Marion Lake Day 2: Marion Lake to Fox Creek, just outside GTNP boundaries Day 3: Fox Creek to Death Canyon Shelf Day 4: Death Canyon Shelf to Alaska Basin Lakes via Devil's Teeth Stairs and Teton Canyon Day 5: Alaska Basin Lakes to Sunset Lake, went the roundabout way to hit Meeks Pass and Static Peak--HIGHLY recommend this addition! Day 6: Sunset Lake to North Cascade Fork (if you go to Lake Solitude after ~5 pm for dinner you're the only people there--all the dayhikers will be gone by then!) Day 7: North Fork to Upper Paintbrush (only 3 small snowfields left on the descent) Day 8: Upper Paintbrush to String Lake parking lot (we parked here on Day 0 and hitched back to Teton Village -- just made a cardboard sign asking for the ride and wore masks. A reviewer on recreation.gov said they parked a bike at String for one person to ride back to their car at Granite Canyon trailhead--a brilliant idea.) Total on-trail mileage: 63 miles, ~13,000 ft elevation gain Tips for the various campsites: Some camp zones had marked sites and some didn't. Zones with unmarked sites still had flattened-down obvious camping areas, but you’ll wander a bit more to find the good ones. Zones with marked sites: lower and upper GC, ML, SFCC, NFCC, HL, LP Zones with unmarked sites: FC and AB (b/c not technically in GTNP), DCS, UP Other campsite notes: Marion Lake has a bear box for all the tenters, so you don't need to fit all your food in your bear canister the first night if you get a permit for ML. It looked like the designated group site in almost all the camping zones have bear boxes so if you use group sites you might not need a bear canister, lucky! The water source in Fox Creek is one small lake near the northern forest/park boundary you cross right before getting to Death Canyon Shelf. The lake isn't visible from the trail but we spotted it while checking some campsites to the right of the trail. The lake was the muckiest of all our water sources (watched moose pee in it). So if you camp in Fox Creek make sure you have a terrain map to find the lake and a plunger to clean sawyer water filters. Death Canyon Shelf didn't have a ton a water. We camped where the most sites were, by the biggest stream about a mile or two from the end of the camping zone. The sites at the end of the zone don't have great views or water so unless you have a killer day the next day, don't go all the way to the end of the camp zone before picking a site. Alaska Basin lakes have a ton of cool sites, explore for a while before picking yours! Sunset lake was fine, a nice sunset but it's not over mountains or anything scenic, so we wished we'd been daring enough to camp overnight at Hurricane Pass to watch sunset and sunrise there. South Fork Cascade Canyon sites looked awesome--camp with views of all three Tetons, a glacier, and sound from the rushing stream all night. North Fork also had a great view of Grand and Owen from the higher campsites; ours was unfortunately partially obscured by Idaho wildfire smoke. If you camp in the top 3 marked sites in North Fork you'll be within a mile or two of lake Solitude, so you can go there for a beautiful private dinner and breakfast the next day! Upper paintbrush and Holly lake were both great zones--paintbrush had great views of the canyon; Holly was a beautiful lake but might be buggier. Lower paintbrush sites looked fine but not terrific. Many people were being reckless about their food and bear canisters. Cook food and keep your canister 100’ from your site AND OTHERS’ campsites. Not 10’, 100! Also, don’t wash clothes or dishes in streams—do it 200’ from water bodies. If we all take a little more time to protect these resources, they’ll remain thriving and beautiful for folks to enjoy in the future....

BackpackingGreat!

From 8/23/20 to 8/27/20 we backpacked the Teton Crest Trail from Phillips Pass TH on Hwy 22 to the String Lake Trailhead via Paintbrush Divide and Paintbrush Canyon, for a total of roughly 44 miles and more than 9,000 feet elevation gain. This trail is a show stopper with the most beautiful and varied features--mountains, forest, meadows, canyons, alpine lakes, waterfalls, glaciers, etc. Day 1 was a long 15 miles to the Death Canyon Shelf. Day 2 took us 11 miles along the DC Shelf, through the Alaska Basin, over Hurricane Pass (a highlight of the trip), and into South Cascade Canyon for camp 2. Day 3 we camped high in North Cascade Canyon and spent the afternoon at Lake Solitude, which is an absolutely stunning lake and actually provided solitude after about 5pm when all of the day hikers had left. Day 4 took us up high over Paintbrush Divide and then down to Holly Lake for camp 4. Day 5 was a quick 6.5 miles down to the String Lake TH and the least interesting. Weather: When we arrived on 8/22, smoke from wildfires in California and Idaho had settled over the Tetons and the valley obscuring our views, but the smoke cleared some each day. Most mornings were sunny and clear with afternoon temps topping out in the low 80s (above average), with some wind and clouds passing through in the afternoon, and then late evening or in the night a brief thunderstorm would pass, with night time lows mostly in the 40s. This is an epic trip I would recommend to anyone with some backpacking experience and would do it again in a heartbeat!

BackpackingGreat!

This was tough to do in three days but we’ll worth it for the magnificent views and acres of wild flowers in mid-August. And virtually no bugs! Getting from the gondola to the spot where the tram would have taken us was a challenging additional 2 miles or so plus 1400 feet of elevation gain to start the hike. We were blessed with no crowds (saw 8 or 9 hikers along the first 20 miles or so) until half way down Cascade Canyon on the way to catch the ferry ($10 one way) across Jenny Lake. The weather was good but between Marion Lake and Alaska Basin the trail is exposed with virtually no shade and you should load up on water from the stream you’ll cross just before Marion Lake since we didn’t find another source for about 6 miles.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Most of the trial was great. We started in granite canyon and ended at string lakes, so it ended up being about 40 miles and 9600 ft of elevation gain. The beginning through granite canyon was thick bushes and not very scenic. Once we were up higher it was better. Camped in upper granite along a stream with nice views. Second night at sunset lake In the Alaska basin- great spot except for wind. Very scenic valleys and lakes. We spent the third night in the upper portion of the north fork. Great views on the Tetons and nice little stream, but again, very windy. Tough climb over paintbrush divide with great views the whole way. Had some snow and a rock fall coming down the other side along with a steep trail and lots of loose rock, making it a bit treacherous. Saw one make and one female moose! Wild flowers were awesome. Watch out for porcupines! We had one visit the first night and he ate my boot and my husbands’ trekking poles!

I hiked from Philips Bench Trailhead to Jenny Lake Via Cascade Canyon in a day, definitely the best hike of my life. If you plan to do it in a day you definitely will be sore, but its very doable, I did it when I was 15. I did it the day the smoke from wildfires in Colorado rolled in so it was hard to see too far, but the views were still some of the best I've ever seen.

Unreal. We started from Phillips Canyon and bushwhacked ~5 of the first 9 miles. Recommend starting from the resort. Also recommend buying the stuff that deters biting flies (deet doesn’t do it). Besides those things, the trail is all-time and I highly recommend.

Hi! For my birthday my gf told me to pick a trip and this is the one I picked! We are both first time backpackers and honestly In not the best shape. We started on July 25 going through the granite canyon. It was mostly up hill ( we are from Louisiana, we aren’t used to inclines) so we did our best to reach the Upper granite. There was a decent amount of skeeters and we did not expect that to be the case but we had some lotion handy. For us water was easy to find, creeks were plentiful in volume and in number, since it had rained the night before. On our second day we aimed for the Alaska Basin, but my partners knee was giving out (she hurt it in Devils Den Arkansas about to weeks ago) so we decided to do our best and stop at the first decent campsite we saw in the Basin. I had to pull out some Ibuprofen from my first aid kit to relieve her pain. Since neither one of us knew how to wrap a knee we just went slow. Our third day was a bit harder, it started raining when we were half way though the basin, it got really foggy and cold. We decided that the best way to stay warm but not hot was to keep our rain jackets on, throw on a beanie and keep moving. During this day we passed through hurricane pass and the actual crest. It was pretty fun, but very snowy so we took our time and made sure we didn’t commit any mistakes here. We staid at the South Fork Cascade campground, we had an incredible view within the valley. Our last day we decided to just go to the Jenney lake. Where we were going to decide if we should go out through Leigh lake or Jenny lake, but we decided to take a boat across. Overall we could have been better prepared. The hike was really fun and really miserably incredible at times. It would have helped if we hadn’t done a spontaneous trip to Arkansas two weeks prior but oh well we made it. I definitely recommend this hike to everyone, it’s not really overtly strenuous nor dangerous.

Set out on this trail on June 28th, 2020. We planned to hike up granite canyon, over death canyon shelf, over paintbrush divide and down paintbrush canyon but the weather had other plans for us. We knew there would be snow so we came prepared, but we thought it would be melting as the temps had been consistently in the 80’s and sunny for the couple weeks prior. June 27th was sunny and 80degrees when we arrived. We started up granite canyon on June 28th when a cold front came through. It was 40degrees and raining when we started. As we got to 9000+feet, it was 30degrees and snowing. We found a dry spot to set up came at Marion lake and it snowed on us all night long. The next day, we started around 6:30am and had no trail to follow. Snow was about 4feet deep in most areas as we continued upwards. There was no sign of a trail or even footsteps because of all the fresh snow. We used all trails and our gps to see where we were in comparison to the trail and made our way to the top of death canyon valley. It was a little sketchy at times, but we had our crampons, gaiters, treking poles, and ice axes. We knew there would be no dry spot for our tent if we continued up to death canyon shelf....Also my sleeping pad had an undetectable leak so I had to sleep on the cold ground.....so we decided it would be best to hike out. BUT Getting down death canyon was going to be an adventure for sure. Because we couldn’t see a trail, the safest way down appeared to be down a very steep hill, so we used our ice axes and slowly made our way down several hundred feet until we found some footsteps!! We hiked out death canyon valley, which is beautiful by the way, and got a hotel for the next 2 nights. We did long day hikes back up into the snow through paintbrush canyon and cascade canyon the next 2 days. We hiked around 45 miles in 4 days and it was absolutely worth it even though our plans changed quite a bit. We saw lots of wildlife including 3 grizzlies, 1 black bear, 6 moose, 2 fox, and many deer and marmots. The day after we left was 80degrees and sunny again so the snow began to melt again. Bad timing for us but we made the absolute best of our trip and had an amazing time in the snowy, beautiful Tetons!! You just never know what weather you are going to get in June-early July in the mountains!! BE PREPARED!!!!

2 of us started at the Granite Trailhead, we left our car at Jenny Lake caught a cab, and started from the south. Off the bat, huge piles of what I'm guessing are bear poop? every 10 feet. Some looking pretty fresh. Good start, be alert, have bear spray ready to go. We head up the granite canyon lower group through an intensely green forest with tall pine trees. Huge pieces of granite rock all around, a large creek next to the trail. We are working pretty hard to get to the middle fork. The forest changes, you end up going into a mountain top meadow full of rocks and wildflowers. also you do not see water... for hours, because the stream is dry. There is an area with some snow you could melt... So you need to swing back out to middle fork creek on the other side for water, where there is also a group campsite, and generally flat un-rocky ground. Day 2 pushing towards Marion lake. beautiful clear lake over 9k feet. terrain is changing to mountain top meadows without rocks. open Green fields with wildflowers. Huge mountains in the vista. A trail that goes on forever. I felt like I was headed for the emerald city wit the Tetons in the deep background. This took us to death shelf campground. Super vertical wall of stone that is a shelf above a green valley. Saw a black bear through the binoculars meandering around the other side of the shelf. it was huge. a very cool place to camp. We rolled the rain fly back that night. clear skies and a new moon. The milky was blazingly bright above us. somehow marmots still managed to eat the salty from sweat handle off wrecking poles we had staked vertical into the ground. Earlier a porcupine was all over these poles when we left camp for 10 minutes and totally uninterested in leaving camp :) cool to see from a distance. watch your poles! I started to hoist all my gear into the trees at night. Marmots want salty. Day 3 (favorite day) takes you through Alaska Basin. which is a lot of switchbacks going down to a basin full of scattered granite, and times it just feel like a nature stone sidewalk. then back up the Sheep's steps which are a challenging set of steep granite rock switchbacks. You see sunset lake, beautiful pristine, clear. Then you push up around a mountain above the valley sunset lake is in... and think, wow I've done a lot of walking. Great views here. This twist up to the schoolroom glacier. Standing at the edge of a cliff looking at a lush green Valley below with the 3 Tetons right in your face, a large glacier and aqua blue run off pool below. Feels kind of "lord of the rings" if you will. This takes you down hurricane's pass. Loose narrow gravel switchbacks with snow on them going a long ways down. You can do it, it's also super pretty, but don't enjoy the view too much. We hiked into the south fork valley and camped our last night. rain and lightening. This part is super lush and green and has a huge creek running next to the trail. In the morning we took this to the cascade canyon pass. Another area with huge granite rocks (good for climbing around on). A huge creek, many places to swim and also... lot's of people. We made our way down to Jenny Lake and hiked around the lake to the car. took a dip in the lake to celebrate. It's cold, real cold.

Best hike of my life, Teton Crest Trail! Ended up doing about 35-40 miles on July 6-10, 2020. Chickened out at having to go down steep snow on the east side of the Paintbrush Divide, instead turned back, and hiked out via Cascade Canyon. Three days ago, July 15, two girls 19 years of age were airlifted from falling 500 feet down snow into rocks in that east side of Paintbrush Divide spot. Ice axes, crampons or spikes are highly advisable. We ran into 2-3 groups that crossed the divide, but they all looked like seasoned mountaineers- not weekend hikers. Being from Florida, my group turned back. Also, Aerial Tram is closed for the Summer 2020 season. If you do this trail, then take the Gondola to start at the Cirque Trail, then it links up with the Rendevous Trail, which ultimately links to the Teton Creat Trail. Make sure you have a GPS, as 60-70% of the Trail was hidden under snow and river streams of snow melt. We had to stop every 200 ft to check our location. Marmots will chew all your gear, so either rope it up high off the ground in trees or sleep with it in your tent. A porcupine are all the straps from our hiking poles, and marmots ate a hole in our water filter hose while it was on the ground for 5 mins. Another hiker had his backpack straps all chewed up, as they like the salt from where your sweat is on your gear. We also saw lots of deer, a moose and a black bear! Ended up sleeping 4 nights out: 1st night - Marion Lake 2nd night - Sunset Lake 3rd night - South Canyon Fork 4th night - North Canyon Fork (intended for Holly Lake, but didn’t brave crossing the divide) To get to Sunset Lake, the trail is steep and hidden - and the waterfall crossing up top looks way more intimidating than what it was. :) pics and videos posted on Instagram at @katyacreative

Just come back from Teton Crest 7/10 Marion Lake 7/11 Alaska Basin 7/12 South fork cascade canyon We are a family of 4. The is my wife's first backpacking trip. She had a kneel surgery before. As we already knew, the Tram is closed, so we took Bridger Gondola instead. The Cirque trail is completely dry out. No problem for navigation. Just an unpleasant kicking-off due to the uphill. My little boy made it to the teton crest trail head in two hours. After that, we met the biggest nuisance in this trip: snow. We didn't expect there are some many in the shaded wood area. We brought micro spike which is not quite useful in the soft snow. Due to snow, we got lost a couple of time especially when the footstep is gone. I used Gaia gps which really saves our life. One example is how to get in and out of Alaska basin. Snow also slowed us down, forced us to slide down the Sheep Steep (to Alaska Basin). If I had choice, I would have came in mid/late August when the snow is totally gone. There are some other steep slopes where the tail is totally gone and it is covered by snow, like Marion lake area and hurricane pass to Cascade canyon. I know the condition is ok for most veteran hikers. (most of them don't bring GPS) However, considering the condition of my wife, we are lucky to get out without injury. We always fell behind schedule and had no time to savor the beautiful landscape. I think I will definitely come back but without snow!! Alaska basin is the most beautiful campsite during the whole trip. I should have stayed two nights over there. Watch out the porcupine in Marion lake. It will chew through everything you leave outside the tent.

Make sure and check trails conditions, even into July. We did this last year and hiked in 5-6 foot snow drifts. Have done it before in middle of July with no snow. The Tram to Marion lake is hardest part, especially when you get close to Marion lake but it’s not terrible. Once you get past Marion lake it’s easy sailing until you get past the Alaskan basin and into hurricane pass.

Trails are well marked and can be crowded in certain areas. For example cascade canyon down to Jenny lake or within a few miles of the gondola. However if you’re doing the whole trail, you’ll go stretches without seeing people. We only encountered a few horses, a few moose and one looked to be adolescent grizzly. The weather is very changeable, so be prepared. Wildflowers? Incredible…
