Backpacker Magazine calls the 40-mile Teton Crest Trail one of the “Best Hikes Ever” with “mesmerizing and constant views of jagged peaks.” It passes through all of the best, most iconic landmarks in Grand Teton National Park (GTNP), including Death Canyon Shelf, Alaska Basin, Hurricane Pass and Paintbrush Divide. Besides the towering granite Tetons, there are pristine alpine meadows, crystal clear lakes, glacially carved canyons and some of the boldest marmots anywhere. Paul and his family hiked the trail over four days in July and then spent three days relaxing in Jackson. He is excited to share their photos, talk about the differences between GTNP and Glacier National Park, and discuss a few of his “take-aways” from the hike.
