grand teton national park backpack

We will drive up on August 28th (Sunday) and camp at the Gros Ventre campground at the south end of the Park. If we can obtain a walk-in backcountry campsite permit upon arrival for the necessary campsites, we will do most or all of the Teton Crest trail south to north from Teton Pass to String Lake, a distance of about 39 miles. The Teton Crest trail will require a shuttle. If that option is not feasible due to unavailability of backcountry campsites, we will backpack the more remote Webb Canyon-Owl Creek loop at the north end of the Park (about 41 miles). We will return sometime Labor Day weekend. Group limit of six. Registration required.
