    The Rendezvous Mountain Hike is a dynamic trek that grants incredible views, exhibiting the mountains’ magnificence. While the ride down the Aerial Tramway is free, those taking the gondola up will have to purchase a ticket. Check out the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort website for updated pricing and hours. If you wish not to take the tramway up the mountain, add on a few miles by hiking the Wildflower Trail up to the trailhead. Don’t forget your canister of bear spray; this route explores bear country! Note the Grand Teton National Park charges an entrance fee; refer to the NPS website for additional information.

    After your spectacular gondola ride up to the summit of Rendezvous Mountain, you will find a trailhead signposted as the Top of the World Loop. Take this route heading southwestwardly, and you will soon confront an intersection with the Rendezvous Mountain Trail, veer right here. This scenic route travels via switchback down the rocky terrain through tree stands and montane meadows. Tracking westwardly, you will be motivated by inspiring views of the nearby craggy peaks.
