FATMAP difficulty grade
A beautiful hike away from the crowds that explores the stunning wilderness of the Grand Tetons.
Plenty of places to camp along the shelf and valley in Death Canyon.
Extend the hike by following the Teton Crest Trail to the Sheep Steps switchbacks to campsites in Alaska Basin.
Give yourself time to adjust to the altitude, and look out for bears and moose around the Phelps Lake Overlook and the ranger station.
Bring along extra water, and be prepared for any weather
