An awesome, short route featuring one of the best Teton Range views in the park.

Description

Starting from the Grand View Point Trailhead, run north on Grand View Point Connector and start the gradual climb to the top of Grand View Point Trail. Just prior to reaching the point, the trail levels off at what might be confused as the summit. Keep chugging though - this is just a false summit! Walk a little further and you'll eventually reach the true summit.

From the top enjoy an outstanding view of Mount Moran (12,605') and the rest of the majestic Teton Range, even though 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.

Once you've had your fill of the view, head back down the trail exactly as you came.
