Upon arrival at the Jackson Hole Airport ( JAC) you will be met and transferred to your accommodations. This evening your guide will provide an orientation of the days of hiking to come before you enjoy a delicious welcome dinner.
This morning after a hearty breakfast, you will transfer to the trailhead. Located in the lightly visited Snake River Range and the southern part of Jackson Hole, Mt Oliver is a great hike to test your legs and lungs at altitude. With an initial high elevation gain and an easy scramble to the top, you will be rewarded with mountain views of Teton Pass, mixed meadows and the solace of nature. Return to the trail head along the same route, 8 miles roundtrip, and then continue back to your accommodations. This evening is on your own to enjoy dinner.
Another day of adventure awaits in the southern Teton Range. Embark on a steady climb as you walk along the Coal Creek through mountain meadows and thick aspen groves to reach a high alpine environment with amazing views. While slightly less mileage than the day before with 7.2 miles roundtrip, the increased elevation gain of 2800 feet make this day a bit more challenging than the last. Return to your comfortable accommodations after a rewarding day. Dinner is on your own tonight.
An early morning awaits for your final day in the Tetons. Explore the start of the Teton Crest Trail as you hike along the Teton Range. You will be dazzled by unparalleled views of both the Wyoming and Idaho Valleys as the Tetons flank the western side of Jackson Hole. This is a challenging hike with two big climbs at the end of the day. Our destination is the peak of Rendezvous Mountain and the famous aerial tram of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. After 14 miles and 4000 feet of elevation gain, you are rewarded with spectacular views as well as a delicious treat at the small waffle hut at the summit. Your trek officially ends with a scenic trip down on the aerial tram before transferring back to your accommodations. Enjoy a final dinner together to celebrate your accomplishments.
Enjoy breakfast this morning before being transferred to the airport in time for your return flight home.
