Grand Teton National Park: Wilcox Point-Moose Creek Loop

wy

Star Star Star Star Star

Find solitude with this surf-and-turf trip.

The Tetons' problem? Alpine beauty + short approaches = busy trails. Solution: Paddle away from the crowds on this 30-miler. Start at Lizard Creek Campground on Jackson Lake's east shore. (Rent canoes at Colter Bay Village Marina: 800-628-9988.) Paddle .75 mile west across the lake to Wilcox Point. (No boat? Reach the trailhead via a 7.5-mile hike south along the Glade Creek Trail.) Hike 10 miles up the Webb Canyon Trail, over Moose Creek Divide. Place your tent at the head of Owl Creek and enjoy stunning views of the Teton Crest's awesome spires. Return to Wilcox Point via the Berry Creek Trail.  --Steve Howe, howephoto.us

This is a great hike precisely for the reason given: nobody is on this trail. I did this hike with a friend years ago and did it all in one day (kinda crazy. couldn't walk that good the next day...). Having spent a few summers in the Tetons I loved doing this hike because it was different and out-of-the-way, and remote. It was unlike any of the other hikes I've done there (and I've done most of them). So check it out.
