Read on for some of the many scenic hikes around Jackson Hole.
Jackson Hole is known for its spectacular and challenging hikes but fear not! Jackson has actually got a bit of everything for everyone, whether you’re looking for something casual, dog friendly, or an epic adventure.
Leigh Lake is a flat family-friendly hike, where your little ones can play around the white sand shoreline of a beautiful beach. If you’re looking for something more challenging, you may want to give Death Canyon a whirl. While its name sounds foreboding, it may actually surprise you with its beautiful views: mountain lakes, pine-filled canyons, wildflowers, and wildlife. It’s a challenging hike overall but the first 1.2 miles to Phelps Lake Overlook is doable for families and offers a good turnaround point.
Just northwest of Jackson you’ll find the Grand Teton National Park, where you can hike the Teton Crest Trail. We’ve split up the 35-mile Teton Crest Trail into five separate adventures, all of which offer their own gems. You will not be disappointed if you choose to go via Paintbrush Canyon towards the Divide. It’s a long but rewarding hike where you’ll savour entire views of the Teton Crest.
