The Best Hiking Around Jackson Hole

When the snow melts and the wildflowers begin to brighten up the hillsides, the hiking trails also emerge from under the snow.  It’s the perfect season to lace up those hiking boots and hit the trails!

Easy

  1. Seven Bridges Trail – Pick up this trail from the top of the Teewinot chairlift, and follow it to the top of Union Pass chairlift.

    Distance/Time: Approx. 0.78 miles; allow 1-2 hours.
    Difficulty Rating: Easy

  2. Top of the World – Experience spectacular views of the Teton Range and Jackson Hole as you hike along the Rendezvous Mountain ridgeline at 10,450 feet. Beautiful alpine wildflowers blanket the landscapes with bright colors as you wander through this sub-alpine environment.

    Difficulty Rating: Easy/Moderate

Moderate

  1. Corbet’s Trail – This trail takes you down to the entrance to Corbet’s Couloir. The couloir is a narrow passageway through the rock that challenges skiers and snowboarders alike during the winter. This is a short hike, but more steep than Top of the World. Beautiful wildflowers bloom along this trail during peak months. It offers great views of the valley.

    Difficulty Rating: Moderate

  2. Saratoga Loop – Start at the base of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and plan about an hour for this short hike, which begins near the bike park by the Teewinot slope and will take you 1.66 miles round-trip. At first, the route follows the Summit Trail before it veers toward Grand Teton National Park and forms a short loop. On the lower part of the loop, you can link up with the Valley Trail to head into Grand Teton National Park for a longer hike.
    Distance/Time: Approximately 1.66 miles; allow 30-60 minutes
