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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.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.
