Enjoy the Mountains
It’s all about the mountains in Grand Teton National Park.
Twelve snow-capped peaks surround the park’s namesake and act as a stunning backdrop for the entire region. Hardcore climbers scramble up icy moraine for an epic summit view, and hikers enjoy well-maintained trails that wind through fields of sagebrush and dense evergreen forests. Four visitor centers and six campgrounds operate during the summer; these are excellent starting points for exploring the area.
