Wyoming Is Home To The Best Backpacking Trail In The Country And You’ll Want To Hike It

Western Wyoming is absolutely breathtaking, as anyone who has ever hiked around the Tetons can confirm! When you’re looking for your next outdoor challenge, consider planning a backpacking trip along the Teton Crest Trail. It’s far from the easiest trek in the state, but after a few days of high elevation hiking, you will feel like you’re on top of the world.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

In order to hike the Teton Crest Trail, you’ll need to secure a permit. Visit the National Park Service website for more information. Many people leave their car at the Jenny Lake Visitor’s Center and take a shuttle to the trailhead, but if you choose to leave your car elsewhere, be prepared to pay for a shuttle bus back at the end of your journey.
