Granite Canyon can be an out & back trail if you begin at the Granite Canyon Trailhead, or you can take the tram in Teton Village to the top of Rendevous Mountain and hike down to Marion Lake and out to the Granite Canyon Trailhead. This is a great place to see wildflowers. This is also a good hike to get up into the mountains, and it is not as demanding as some of the trails that lead into other canyons in the Tetons.

My husband and I did this trail last week. Almost got to the end before we could no longer find the trail due to the snow. Nice trail. Long and not too steep. Great views of the river and multiple waterfalls. We did not see anyone else the whole time.

Great trail with many optional side trails up hill. One of the best for fall foliage.

Great out and back hike from the Granite Canyon parking area. We started early and glad we did. Nice gradual elevation gain and shaded but many open areas. According to Alltrails app we about 12.5 miles. When we arrived back at the trail head it was 88 degrees. Glad the sun was at our backs.

It was a very nice walk. Very gradual inclines. Most of the hike was shaded in the trees. We started early and saw Deer and Moose.

We did an out and back going in about six miles. Next time we are here we plan to ride the tram to the top of Rendevous and then do the canyon from the top.

We did it other way that states here. We started in Teton village and rejoined the Granite canyon trail, hiked up to Marion lake and then looped back to top of Rendezvous mountain where we took the tram down to Teton village.Was a long day. Definitely not an easy hike that we did but was rewarding. Mileage pounded on...
