5 Amazing Backpacking Trips in Grand Teton National Park

Explore the best of Grand Teton National Park's wilderness.

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

Grand Teton National Park is one of the best parks in the world to visit if you’re an avid backpacker. One might even call it a backpacker’s heaven. With a plethora of stunning alpine terrain, wildlife, and wildflowers, these five backpacking trips are adventures you won’t want to miss.

For the perfect place to get a little R&R after your backpacking adventure, we recommend staying at Togwotee Mountain Lodge. Just outside of the park, away from the crowds, this lodge is a beautiful place to refuel with delicious food, sleep in comfort, and wake up in a prime location for more adventures.
