Description

Starting from the Lupine Meadows trailhead/parking area, Garnet Canyon climbs more than 2,500 feet. As the trail switchbacks up the mountainside, views of the lakes and eastern ranges abound. After 2-miles, the trail forks from Amphitheater Lake Trail and heads southwest into Garnet Canyon proper.

Garnet Canyon is the most popular approach route for climbers attempting to summit not only Grand Teton (13,775') but also Middle Teton (12,804'), South Teton (12,514'), Teepe Pillar (12,266') and Disappointment Peak (11,618'). The trail continues beyond its mapped extent, but is unmaintained once it enters boulder fields at approximately the 9,500-foot elevation point.
