Description

This glacier carved trail spans from Moose Wilson Rd at ~6,400' all the way to ~8,900', and terminates at an intersection with Fox Creek Pass. From the trailhead on the road, head past the Teton Village Trail and enter Granite Canyon proper. From the canyon entrance, the trail ascends at a steady rate, passing South Fork Granite Canyon on the left, and Open Canyon on the right.

Granite Canyon follows Granite Creek all the way up to the beautiful alpine Marion Lake, if you take a right on Fox Creek Pass. Many people choose to pitch a tent here, and enjoy a night in the mountains before either returning to their car, or continuing along the Teton Crest Trail on Fox Creek Pass to Death Canyon Shelf.

To make this journey a little more manageable, many visitors will ride the famous Jackson Tram to the top of Rendezvous Mountain, down its namesake trail, and right onto South Fork Granite Canyon to connect to Granite Canyon.
