Description

One of the best trails in the park, Hermitage Point features awesome views of Mt. Moran (12,605') and the surrounding Teton Range.

Starting from an intersection with Swan Lake Trail and Jackson Lake Overlook Trail, Hermitage Point Trail heads south along the shoreline. The next intersection you'll encounter is at a Hermitage Point Cutoff, be sure to take a right here.

After departing from Heron Pond, the trail continues south, and Jackson Lake will be hidden by tree cover. Eventually, the trail enters an open sage meadow with stunning views of the Teton Range across Hermitage Point. The views last for another mile or so, all the way to the point.

After absorbing the views from the point, continue through the open meadows as your journey takes you north along the eastern shoreline of Hermitage Point. Pass the designated campsite and Hermitage Point Cutoff trail by staying right, then turn left at the next intersection with another Hermitage Point Cutoff . From here the trail goes over a tiny hill and terminates at a four-way intersection with Swan Lake Trail and Jackson Lake Overlook Trail - exactly where you started!
