A stunning trail with lakes, some climbing, and wilderness away from the tourists

Bill Sycalik

Overview

This run will treat you to beautiful views of two gems of the Grand Teton National Park - Jenny Lake and String Lake. In addition, you'll enjoy a long rolling run on the Valley Trail which gets you away from the tourists.
Features: Fall Colors — Lake — River/Creek — Views — Wildlife

Need to Know

The trails are very well marked. Watch out for bears and other wildlife. In the busy season, there are a fair number of people on the popular trails but get out onto the Valley Trail a bit and it clears out almost completely.

Runner Notes

Carry bear spray and know how to use it. Make sure to have enough water or a filter.

Description

Staring at the String Lake boat launch, loop counterclockwise around Jenny Lake and String Lake via the Jenny Lake Connector and String Lake Trail. Take the Valley Trail from Jenny Lake area all the way to Teton Village. Have your car or a ride waiting for you.

The Valley Trail is rolling with several good uphills and long downhills all the way to Teton Village. Note that the end of the run is not within the National Park boundaries. I was sure to complete 26.2 in the Park before continuing to Teton Village.

Flora & Fauna

Marmots, deer, bear (black and grizzly).
