You will earn unique views of the iconic, jagged Teton Peaks, and the valley floors on both the east and west slope of the Tetons. We will be hiking and exploring the high country of the Jedediah Smith Wilderness, which is full of rich heritage and western culture that will come to life for you as we hike.
This trip features amazing, remote camps; mountain rivers and streams; rich wildlife habitat; and two spectacular day hikes to high peaks with stunning views.
