Backpack - Teton Crest Trail


Backpack - Teton Crest Trail

Please note: we are no longer accepting registration requests for this trip as it has a full roster & a long waitlist. Backpacking the Teton Crest Trail is a chance to experience glorious high alpine scenery like nowhere else in the USA.

  • Strenuous
  • Challenging
  • Mileage: 30.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 7,400 ft
  • Pace: 2 mph

Jackson, Wyoming, Sept. 1, 2023. Time, exact location TBD.


  • One-way, point-to-point route along the beautiful Teton Crest trail in Grand Teton National Park (sorry, no dogs allowed).
  • Plan on arriving the day BEFORE we begin hiking in and it would be wise to NOT plan on catching a flight on the same day that we exit as we can't guarantee the exact timing

Please Be Aware...

  • Weather, wildfire smoke or other hazards may cancel this trip.
  • Backcountry camping permit has already been obtained by trip leader from the national park and we aren't be able to add additional people.


  • Participants are expected to arrange their own travel and pay their way to Wyoming and for any lodging there.
  • Arriving the day prior to this trip's start date in order to participate in the group check-in & avoid travel snafus is required.
  • Participants are expected to pay their share of the camping permit and any trailhead shuttle service arranged by primary trip leader.
  • Your registration will be canceled if you do not pay these costs to primary trip leader - costs will be shared in advance.

Get stoked!
