Few wilderness backpacking trips in the country measure up, step for step, to a multi-day trek along the incomparable Teton Crest Trail in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. Variously 35 to 39 miles, depending on the route you hike, the TCT delivers a consummate backpacking experience. You enjoy frequent views of the magnificent Teton Range skyline and cliff-flanked canyons, and campsites that will rank among the most gorgeous spots you have ever slept outside. The wildflowers, mountain lakes and creeks are delightful. You have a good chance of seeing moose, elk, marmots, pikas, mule deer, and black bears. There are many reasons why it graces many lists of the best backpacking trips in America.

This exclusive, premium e-guide describes several variations of the TCT, making it effectively a guide to backpacking most of the Teton Range.
