Find solitude with this surf-and-turf trip.

Rating

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
