National Park
“Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.”

“Beautiful trail. You can hike all the way to Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park. It's recommended for an over night trip but can be done in one day if you really get after it!”

Hotel
“Plan a 1-2 stop to refresh at Signal Mtn. Jump in the lake or pay to shower in facilities that do ot require camping to use. Have your quarters ready to keep the hot water flowing. Check wifi at the Signal Mtn Store and go in to purchase craft beer, lattes, and high quality prepared foods. If you are too tired to cook this is a great spot. Better yet, mosey into Signal Mtn Lodge Bar and have a seat for NACHOS and a MARG. If you have an essential sports NBA/NFL game that is a not-miss chances are it will be on in Signal's Bar. PLUS CAMPING NEARBY BOTH FREEEE & PAY”

Trail
“We hiked this trail our second day in Jackson Hole and it did not disappoint. Not very crowded, but enough fellow hikers to not feel so alone deep in bear country. Lots of bear "evidence" but we did not see any, unfortunately (I really wanted to!). Definitely take bear spray. On the way in, we met a young lady who saw a "brown bear" up close and she had no bear spray. Needless to say she was ready to leave. Phelps Lake overlook offers a breathtaking view. We hiked the lake loop and watched a few jumping off the rock. As other reviewers have noted, I also recommend taking lots of water.”

Lake
“Took the ferry across Jenny Lake and by the time we were done we were VERY glad we did. This is a LONG hike 15+ miles with about 3000 ft elevation gain, and goes up to 9000ft elevation so oxygen is not as plentiful! If you are in decent shape do this hike. As beautiful as Cascade Canyon is (and it IS beautiful) easily the better views are along the North Fork ascending to Lake Solitude. End of July and there was almost no snow at all, only one very small area near the top. Lake was all water too. LOTS of mosquitoes around the lake but that was the only place we ran into them. You will be exhausted but exhilarated!”

“This trailhead takes you up Garnet Canyon. You can do some peak bagging or head to Surprise or Ampitheatre Lakes for a great hike.”
