The Aerial Tram offers a unique hiking experience unlike any other in the Jackson Hole area. Ascending 4,139' in just 12 minutes, the tram leaves hikers at 10,450' among the high peaks of the Southern Tetons. From here you are free to access a vast trail network connecting Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Bridger-Teton National Forest, and Grand Teton National Park - all while avoiding the 4,000+ foot climb to the top. Enjoy your time at the top for photos and hiking, and catch the tram back down, they come every 15 minutes during operating hours. Don't forget to stop into Corbet's Cabin and pick up a world famous waffle to end your day.

Teton Crest Trail
A must-do hike for any backpacker, the Teton Crest Trail starts at Teton Pass and follows the ridgelines through Teton Village, all the way to Mt. Moran at the north end of GTNP. Jump start your Teton Crest Trail experience with a ride on the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram, avoiding the initial 4,139’ uphill hike, to meet the trail at the top of Rendezvous Mountain. The trail follows the high crest through wildflower meadows, around glacial lakes and offers panoramic views. Backpackers can end their adventure at a number of different locations depending on the desired length of the trip. This is a true wilderness adventure and an experience of a lifetime. However, it requires extensive backcountry experience, endurance, and skills. If you are not up for a multi-day hike*, check out Marion Lake and Granite Canyon for day hike options in GTNP.
This hike starts at the summit of Rendezvous Mountain and makes its way up through alpine and sub-alpine terrain to Marion Lake in GTNP. This is a great overnight in the backcountry*. 12.5 miles round-trip, 7 hours, 4,250’ total vertical rise.
From the top of the tram, take this strenuous hike down into Granite Canyon’s alpine forest in GTNP, ending at the Teton Village base area, or hike from bottom to top for an uphill challenge. 11 miles one way, 7 hours, 4,100’ total vertical rise/descent. Shuttles can be arranged from Teton Village to the Granite Canyon trailhead to avoid the Valley Trail hike to Teton Village.
The most moderate of them all, the Valley Trail originates in the Teton Village base area and traverses along relatively flat terrain to Phelps Lake adjacent to the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve in GTNP. The trail winds through alpine forests that are home to local wildlife such as bears, moose, marmots and miles and provide great views of the valley. The hike ends at the shores of Phelps Lake and provides an ideal spot for picnicking and swimming. 5.1 miles one way, 2-3 hours, minimal vertical rise. Shuttle a car to your destination if you only want to hike one way.
*All backcountry camping requires a permit and park-approved bear canister. These can be obtained at GTNP ranger stations or Visitor Centers.
