The final crossing of Moose Creek can be quite dangerous and is un-bridged.

Runner Notes

This is a very difficult, but doable run. Steep grades and remoteness make this a rewarding challenge.

Description

Coal Creek serves as an entry point to the Teton Crest Trail. A sign on Wyoming Highway 22 marks the beginning of the trail. After 2.3 miles of moderately steep running, Coal Creek Meadows is reached, whose deep grass and large spring make a beautiful campsite. Another .3 miles leads to the Coal Creek-Mequite Canyon divide and an intersection with a trail to Phillips Pass.

From there 2.0 miles of moderate running down Mequite Canyon presents Moose Meadows, an area filled with large beaver ponds and grassy meadows frequently used as campsites. After an un-bridged and sometimes hazardous crossing of Moose Creek, the trail intersects Moose Creek Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Beaver, moose.
