Trail shared by Allen Cain

This is the first half of the shorter, but far more difficult, route to Table Mountain.

Description

Oh the things you'll see! Oh the mountains you'll climb!

Face Trail to North Teton Trail (Huckleberry Trail) to Table Mountain is the common sequence of trails to reach the fantastic views at the top. As the sign says at the beginning of the trail, this is "Not Recommended". However, while it is very difficult, it is doable. Those who are faint of heart (and lung) should not attempt. But for those that do, it is well worth the accomplishment. Folks often take this trail up and the easier, more relaxed, North Teton Trail (Huckleberry Trail) back down.

There are no water sources on the trail. Be prepared for high steps, loose soil and rocks, and very steep sections. In the first half of summer, be prepared to cross snowfields.

Average time will be 6 to 8 hours round trip to Table Mountain and back.
