Wyoming’s mountain trails are known for their gorgeous and impressive wildflowers. If you’re looking to track down quite a sight this summer, plan a day hike or backpacking trip into Paintbrush Canyon, one of the highest rated trails in Grand Teton National Park
Hiking through Paintbrush Canyon in Grand Teton National Park is a breathtaking experience that should be on everyone's bucket list.
You can hike for miles and miles into Paintbrush Canyon, and many choose to extend this hike all the way to String Lake.
Along the way, you'll pass millions of wildflowers. The Canyon is known for being of the best places to spot mountain wildflowers throughout the state.
In fact, Paintbrush Canyon is named after Wyoming's state flower - the bright red Indian Paintbrush.
You'll see Indian Paintbrush, Lupine, and many, many more beautiful wildflowers along your journey.
After climbing up in elevation, you'll reach Paintbrush Divide. The views from 10,700 feet up are absolutely breathtaking.
Spend some time enjoying the sweeping panoramic views of the Teton Valley. You will feel like you're on top of the world - and this is about as close to heaven as you can get in the Cowboy State.
If you do choose to turn your trip into a backpacking excursion, there's no better place to pitch your tent than scenic String Lake. Relax here before having to hike back to reality.
