Description

Nestled between Wildcat Peak (9,086') and Bobcat Ridge, Middle Pilgrim Creek is an awe-inspiring venture through some of the most remote, grizzly-packed wilderness in the US, all within sight of Grand Teton.

Starting from the parking area off of Pilgrim Creek Road, Middle Pilgrim Creek trail rises, as the creek itself falls at a very easy rate at first, then more rapidly, until it reaches an intersection with Wildcat Peak Trail. Before this intersection however, you'll bypass West Pilgrim and Pilgrim Trail and shortly after exit the cover of trees and into meadows overflowing with wildflowers.

After intersecting with Wildcat Peak Trail, Middle Pilgrim drops at a reasonable rate to Arizona Creek Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Summer brings trumpeter swans, sandhill cranes, ducks, geese, and songbirds. Grizzly bears, grey wolves, mountain lions, and bison wander across meadows. Golden and bald eagles, grouse, coyotes, beavers, martens, bobcats, porcupines, otters, and mink make
their living here.
