Trekking Grand Tenton National Park Wyoming, USA

Trekking Grand Tonton

Next to the well known Yellowstone National Park, the Grand tendon national Park is worth visit. This is how you can have a great adventure experience in the Grand Tenton National Park.

GET IN THE SADDLE

Experience the West in true cowboy form. Choose from a variety of guided horseback rides from short, family-friendly trips to over- night pack trips. You’re guaranteed a fun ride and sweeping vistas of the Tetons, Christian Pond and Oxbow Bend on the Snake River.

PEDAL A PATH

Although biking on trails is not permitted in Grand Teton National Park, cyclists are allowed to pedal on road- ways. And, don’t miss a ride along the paved, multi-use pathway that stretches eight miles from Moose Junction all the way to South Jenny Lake. To get in some off-road biking, head to nearby Jackson, a mountain-biking haven.

RAFT AWAY

Float down the relaxing Snake River while enjoying spectacular views of dense forests and the majestic Tetons. On a guided float trip, you’ll get a lesson in Wyoming’s flora and fauna and have a chance to spot local wildlife such

as moose, bison, bald eagles, elk and beavers. For adventurers seeking a bit of excitement, opt for a guided whitewater excursion, which will take you through canyons and rapids.

TACKLE THE TETONS

Experienced and novice hikers alike will love the range of scenic trails scattered throughout the park. Beginners should try a low-elevation route, such as the 1.2-mile hike to Phelps Lake, whereas advanced adventurers can opt for a chal- lenging trek up Hanging Canyon. Hikers looking for a moderate challenge should try the trail leading to Solitude Lake. The 16-mile journey starts at South Jenny Lake and winds through wildflower-filled valleys and Cascade Canyon.

DROP A HOOK

With its abundance of deep blue lakes, spring streams and the Snake River, Grand Teton National Park offers plenty of options for anglers looking to snag their next big catch. Head to Colter Bay Village Marina on Jackson Lake for fishing licenses and boat rentals, or schedule a guided fly-fishing tour.

WATCH FOR WILDLIFE

Sixty species of mammals, more than 300 species of birds and a half-dozen game fish call the park home, so spotting critters in their natural habitats should be easy — as long as you know where to look. Bring a pair of binoculars and search for osprey, bald eagles, elk, coyotes and muskrats.
