Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in northwestern Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton, which, at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.The name "Tetons" originally was intended to describe several hills near the town of Arco, Idaho. They were named by a French trapper who thought that they resembled a very specific part of the female body. Many years later the name was mistakenly applied to the mountains of present day Grand Teton National Park due to the poor map-making and map-reading standards of the time.

Dogs are NOT allowed on this trail, as described. I recommend the full Teton Crest Trail (40m) starting from the Pass / Phillips Trailhead : https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/teton-crest-trail--9

Took the boat across Jenny lake to start the hike up to Inspiration Point, which lives up to its namesake! Then you head back into the Canyon which is jaw dropping. We saw picas and a total of four moose. My kids were in heaven. My favorite hike of our vacation to The Badlands, Yellowstone, and Grand Teton!

Nice trail along the east side of Leigh Lake, add String Lake for a nice hike. Great views of the Tetons along the way.

Think many confuse this set of historic cabins at Menor's Ferry with Mormon Row's Moulton Barn. Menor's Ferry is located in Moose, and the historic district includes the Chapel of the Transfiguration - https://www.nps.gov/grte/learn/historyculture/menor.htm. We also drove by the Moulton barn and stopped; got out and walked around, close to the cabin, and there are Bison in the fields around it, so don't provoke them. Great photo opportunity with barn, bison and big Tetons in the background. Must stop if in Jackson Hole.

Great drive through the middle of the the valley east of the Tetons on the North-South Hwy, takes you by Ansel Adams famous shot at the Snake River Overlook. See bison, pronghorns, elk, moose, deer, coyotes and if lucky a bear. This is wide open country on the road between GTNP and YNP. Arrive at Jackson Lake, where you can overnight in style. Enjoy the ride.

We drove west on Hwy 22 from Jackson, took a right turn onto Hwy 390 (Moose-Wilson Road) toward Teton Village and Grand Teton NP. The Teton Range loomed along the whole left side of the road. Big granite peaks topped with snow like ice cream and aproned by blue-green prairie shrubs and trees. We passed by Teton Village and could see the how the tram snaked its way up the mountain. We drove on to the GTNP entrance and went a couple of miles on pavement and onto a gravel road. We stopped at the entrance to Granite Canyon to check out the trail but were attacked by biting flies. So we drove on, saw a big mule deer in the brush and came back to the paved road and back to the main inner loop road. The visitor’s center was to the right, but we went left through the Teton entrance gate. The Chapel of the Transfiguration and Menor’s Ferry were to the right just past the gate entrance. We opted to go on and our first stop was a spectacular view of the Tetons at the Windy Point turnout. We then drove on to the Jenny Lake Visitor’s Center and walked down to the boat dock, purchased our tickets to take the boat across Jenny Lake. We really enjoyed Hidden Falls, Inspiration Point and Cascade Canyon - will plan to go all the way to the end of Cascade next time. The next day we visited The Chapel of the Transfiguration, an Episcopal chapel, which frames the main Tetons through the clear pane glass just behind the cross inside. The main Tetons are Grand Teton, Middle Teton (black granite), and South Teton, Mt. Owen (next to Cascade Canyon) and Mt. Moran (with a vertical black granite “spike”). This particular stretch of road on up to Jenny Lake is right next to the big five and is great for walking, biking and a scenic drive. Highly recommend it.

Great little hike, be sure to see Hidden Falls to the ~northwest of the loop.

We went here while it was still very cold. We did not get to see any large wild life, but we did see some moose tracks and a bald eagle.

Great hike back in August of 2015 - saw multiple moose and a brown bear. Hiked to Hidden Falls - beautiful area

Excellent hike. Expect crowds in the summer.

Awesome trail with some challenging spots. Great views!

Amazing trail! I don't give many hikes a five star rating but this trail is truly amazing. Mountains, lakes, and wild life everywhere you go.
