Synopses & Reviews
Grand Teton National Park may be one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring parks of the Rocky Mountains. The craggy Teton peaks reach as high as 13,770 feet, forming a bony ridge through Wyoming along the Continental Divide. Fronting the Teton Range lies the twisting and curving Snake River, winding its way down the Jackson Hole Valley. The reflections of the Tetons gently ripple across the river¿s serene water.
Day Hikes In Grand Teton National Park includes a thorough cross-section of 72 day hikes throughout this national park and around its perimeter. Now in its fourth edition, the guide includes all of the park¿s most popular hikes as well as a wide assortment of secluded backcountry hikes. Hikes range from easy lakeshore paths to rugged canyon hikes that gain several thousand feet in elevation (and consequently offer some of the best views). Highlights include panoramic vistas, glacier-carved canyons, tumbling creeks and waterfalls, several large lakes, old-growth forests, meadows, hot springs, historical sites, prime wildlife habitats, North America¿s largest landslide, and two hikes atop the Jackson Hole Ski Resort.
Each hike in this guide includes a detailed map, accurate driving and hiking directions, and a quick overview of distance/time/elevation. In addition, several overall maps show the hike locations in the larger area. The summaries allow hikers to choose a trail appropriate to their ability and desire.
