Route Description for Arizona Creek Trail
Located on the eastern boundary of the Grand Teton Mountain Range, the Arizona Creek Trail has remained fairly undiscovered, which we love! This incredible trek is not difficult due to its terrain. Instead, it's the distance that demands a bit of a sweat, though intermediate hikers would be able to manage just fine. As with all adventures in the area, we encourage you or someone in your party to carry a can of bear spray and know how to use it! Note the Grand Teton National Park charges an entrance fee; refer to the NPS website for additional information.
Setting out from the parking lot and trailhead, the Arizona Creek Trail travels north through a forested canyon bisected by Arizona Creek. As you hike, you will be lulled into a state of relaxation by the sounds of the gurgling creek. Take your time as you climb and keep an eye out for soaring birds above and camouflaging wildlife in the woodlands. After some hiking, the path will demand a steep ascent out of the valley before plateauing.
Following the Arizona Creek Trail for the entirety of your hike, you will eventually reach your turnaround point at the junction with the Rodent Creek Trail. From here, simply retrace your footing along the path back to the trailhead.
