If you’re ready for an unforgettable hiking adventure, this trip is for you! This trip makes a fantastic add-on to a longer visit to Yellowstone Country, but is also a worthwhile standalone vacation. We’re going to head deep into the Gros Ventre Mountain Range outside Jackson Hole, where we’ll explore remote rivers and creeks, hike over several high passes, spend a layover day roaming the high country, search for wildlife, and enjoy fantastic wilderness camps where the night sky is like nothing you’ve ever seen!
The trip originates in Jackson Hole, where our trailhead is a short hour drive away. We’ll begin our hike up the Shoal Creek drainage, where we’ll camp the first night near Shoal Falls, a breathtaking waterfall. We’ll continue hiking up the drainage, nearly to the headwaters of Shoal Creek, where we’ll camp in a stunning basin below the high country. Then we hike over our first alpine pass and drop into a stunning meadow camp. We’ll take a day to explore Hidden Basin, an off-trail alpine area that is a highlight of this trip. Our route continues over another alpine pass and then drops into pristine Granite Creek. We’ll follow Granite Creek downstream and cap off the trip with a soak in Granite Hot Springs – a rustic, developed hot spring pool.
