Description

Static Peak Divide starts at a junction off of the Death Canyon Trail near the Death Canyon Barn and climbs steeply to Static Peak Divide. From the divide, the trail splits with Alaska Basin Shelf and heads west, into the Jedediah Smith Wilderness. Along the way, you'll pass just below the summits of Albright Peak, Static Peak and Buck Mountain.

There are no camping zones on the trail within Grand Teton National Park, however in National Forest lands within Alaska Basin, camping is permitted anywhere more than 200 ft away from lakes, though no open fires are allowed. The Alaska Basin Trail is often used by climbers attempting to ascend Buck Mountain (11,938').

Conditions


Minor Issues 63 days ago
Snowy, Mostly Dry - The climb up from Death Canyon is almost entirely snow free. There are three snow chutes still holding snow near the top of the divide that an ice axe would be recommended for transit. Snow free from the divide along the exposed section of trail until the last half mile prior to entering the Alaskan Basin. Heavy snow through the bowl that continues well into the Alaska Basin. Ice axe recommend.
