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.

Half the trail was closed for maintenance so we did String Lake to Moose Ponds and back. We saw a moose at Moose ponds, then two more moose on the west shore as we rode a 30 minute boat ride from the pier down from the visitor center. Pretty crowded trail though, we avoided the crowd by hiking the Jenny Lake road bike lane back to our car parked close to the String Lake trailhead. Good shortcut, we saw more wildlife there than on the trail itself.

Easy hike with nice views but the second loop is really poorly maintained.

From Teton Village you can get this trail from up the Teewinot slope (just turn right towards the Apres Vous lift after passing the Four Seasons and heading up the big hill for a quarter mile). Then follow Valley Trail signs. Took the trail to Phelps Lake and around for a moderate hike. Not a lot of incline, but there were some snow covered trail areas even at the end of May.
