Trailhead: Teton Canyon, off of Ski Hill Road just past Alta, Wyoming - Teton Canyon is undoubtedly one of the best spots to start a trip on the western side of the Tetons. From here, you can bag the top of Table Mountain, which on a clear day gives stunning views of the less-seen west face of the Grand Teton and surrounding peaks, or hike up to beautiful Alaska Basin and the steep and striking Devil’s Stairs. If you’re looking for a challenge, runners enjoy doing the entire traverse of the Tetons in one day – just be sure to arrange a shuttle beforehand. There are also a plethora of camping options in the Teton Canyon campsite and along the trails.

** We love to bike this trail and go across the train tressle. ** Built in 1912, the Oregon Short Line Railroad, a subsidiary of Union Pacific Railroad, connected the communities of Ashton, Idaho, through Drummond, Lamont, Tetonia, Driggs, and Victor. The railroad brought prosperity to the sparsely populated Teton Valley; it connected formerly isolated communities and commerce, and moved important agricultural freight, such as livestock, seed potatoes, peas, and grain. This 29.6 mile trail follows the abandoned railroad grade of the Teton Valley Branch of the Union Pacific Railroad from Ashton to Tetonia.

Congress created the original park in 1929 to protect the Teton Range and several lakes at the foot of the mountains. In 1943, Franklin D.
