Description

Starting from an intersection with Emma Matilda Lake Trail, head north and start the gradual climb to the top of Grand View Point. Just prior to reaching the point, the trail levels off at what might be confused as the summit. Keep chugging though, as this is just a false summit! Walk a little further and you'll eventually reach the summit.

From the top, enjoy an outstanding view of Mount Moran (12,605') and the rest of the majestic Teton Range, although some of it is obscured by the trees. As an added bonus, turn your eyes to the east and enjoy an amazing vista of Two Ocean Lake, its associated meadows, and the wilderness beyond.

If the views of Two Ocean Lake entice, continue north as the Grand View Point Trail plummets to the lake below.
