The famous site where photographer William H. Jackson shot the first photos of the Grand Teton in 1872, this flat-topped, 11,106-foot summit offers the finest view anywhere of the Grand and surrounding peaks. The 13-mile round-trip hike--most of it within the Jedediah Smith Wilderness--follows the North Fork Teton Canyon Trail, at the end of Teton Canyon Road outside Driggs, ID.
