The most moderate of them all, the Valley Trail originates in the Teton Village base area and traverses along relatively flat terrain to Phelps Lake, adjacent to the Laurance S.
Rockefeller Preserve in GTNP.
The trail winds through alpine forests that are home to local wildlife such as bears, moose and marmots and provide great views of the valley.
The hike ends at the shores of Phelps Lake and provides an ideal spot for picnicking and swimming.
Trail distance is 5.1 miles one way, requiring 2-3 hours and minimal vertical rise.
Shuttle a car to your destination if you only want to hike one way.
