    Route Description for Grand Teton National Park Pathway Hike

    The Grand Teton National Park Pathway is a well-maintained route that traces the Teton Park Road, showcasing some of the most impressive scenery in the park. One of the few routes accessible for bikers, this shared route sees moderate traffic, so you will likely enjoy solitude in the mornings and evenings. Offering breathtaking views of the Teton Mountains, this route is exposed to the elements, so check the forecast and dress accordingly. Additionally, as it is a one-way adventure, make sure you arrange for pickup at the trail’s end. Note the Grand Teton National Park charges an entrance fee; refer to the NPS website for additional information.

    Setting out from the southern trailhead, the Grand Teton National Park Pathway crosses over the Snake River before redirecting north, running parallel to the Teton Mountains. Revel in the grandeur of the towering chain of snow-capped summits that bound the western side of the Jackson Hole and enjoy views of the Gros Ventre Mountains flanking the valley in the east. Notice Grand Teton and the surrounding Cathedral Group rising above all the other summits, commanding the range.

    Eventually, the path will appear to end, merge onto the Jenny Lake Loop Trail, and trace the shoreline of the glacial pool mirroring the mountainscape. At the Jenny Lake Overlook, connect with the Jenny Lake Loop Road, which will ultimately deliver you to the parking lot, marking the end of your adventure.
