Approximately 3 million people visit Grand Teton National Park on an annual basis. It doesn't matter why you visit - to climb the granite or camp along the shores of Jenny Lake. You'll end up leaving with a whole bunch of beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

Backpacking the Grand Teton crest is truly the only way to enjoy everything the park has to offer. It is probably one of the most stunning hikes in the country. The trail starts at the park's southern border and runs north. It moves through the high country of the Tetons for 39 miles only to end at Paintbrush Canyon.

Another great experience in the park is to go on a trip down the Snake River. The landscape and scenery along the way is quite breathtaking. The river's source is in the Teton Wilderness; it travels until it reaches Yellowstone National Park, continuing to flow south into Jackson Lake, which is located in the park.
