This iconic Wind River Range trip is for the traveler who wants a real adventure and to experience as much as possible over 5 days. Despite being only five days in length, this trip feels more like a seven day llama trek because of the amount of country we see and breadth of experiences.
Our trip begins in Jackson Hole, where we pick you up at your hotel for a shuttle to the trailhead (about 2.5 hours). Our route takes us along creeks, past towering cliffs, and then into the high country. We reach the alpine quickly on this trip and stay high for most of the trip (above 10,000 feet). We’ll set up camp the first night on the shores of an alpine lake, and the second night deep in the wilderness with fantastic views of the towering summits of the Continental Divide. On Day 3 we’ll leave camp set and explore Titcomb Basin, one of the most challenging and stunning backcountry mountaineering destinations in the United States. We’ll be staring up at sheer cliffs guarding the summits of 13,000+ foot peaks like Jackson Peak and Fremont Peak. We’ll discover the meandering alpine creeks, wildflower-filled meadows, crystal clear mountain lakes, and generally awe-inspiring scenery of this truly amazing area. After our day in Titcomb, we’ll head back out of the mountains, again soaking up the solitude and beauty as we hike and camp our way out.
The Wildland Trekking Company operates under a permit issued by the Bridger-Teton National Forest, and is an equal opportunity employer.
