Getting Here is a Breeze

No matter what your point of origin might be, heading to Jackson Hole is made simple when you fly into Jackson Hole Airport. Located just 20 miles from Jackson Hole Resort, this airport is served by airlines out of 12 major U.S. cities. Airlines that fly into Jackson Hole Airport include Delta, United, American, Alaska, Allegiant, and Sun Country. The airport is also open to private jet services. While you’ll likely be ready to hit the ground running once you land, it’s fun to note that Jackson Hole Airport is the only commercial airport of its kind in the country that enjoys a location right in a national park. As soon as you’re wheels down on the runway, you’ll find yourself in Grand Teton National Park with just a 36-minute drive ahead of you to reach Jackson Hole by car.

Getting Around Once You’re Here

Having a rental car in Jackson Hole in the summertime is highly recommended. This is particularly true if you’re planning to venture out into the national parks or staying in Teton Village which is 12 miles northwest of Jackson Hole. That said, Jackson Hole is also equipped with a public bus system and many visitors opt to rent a bike while they’re in town for getting around when they’re staying close to one destination.

Summer Activities to Enjoy

Once you have that bike rented, you’re going to want to get out and explore Jackson Hole’s terrain. There are fantastic mountain biking trails right at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort as well as more leisurely paved trails running through town. Head over to JH Sports for mountain bike rentals or Teton Village Sports for an e-bike if you prefer. For summer travelers who are looking for a new view of it all, this is the season for sensational rock climbing in Jackson Hole. Alongside an experienced guide, you can tackle the Jackson Hole via Ferrata atop the Bridger Gondola and the reward lies in some breathtaking views that await. Climbing options are just as inviting over at Grand Teton National Park which is also a great option when you’re looking for fun hikes, or afternoons enjoyed cooling off at Jenny Lake. Phelps Lake is another great choice for a swim while guided wildlife-watching tours through the park will put you within reach of amazing creatures of all kinds. If you’re a visitor with a passion for time on the greens, Jackson Hole hosts five area golf courses as well as a disc golf course to utilize over at Teton Village. When you’re traveling this way with the entire family in tow, activities like horseback riding or riding the Jackson Hole Aerial Tram and dining on gourmet waffles at Corbet’s Cabin afterward could just be the highlight of your seasonal adventure.

Summer Temperatures to Consider

Jackson Hole is a four seasons destination and in the summer, visitors can count on warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Average temperatures in June linger around the mid-70s while July and August see those numbers jump into the 80s. If you’re planning to be out exploring extensively, sunscreen, sunglasses, bug repellant, and hats are highly recommended. When you have hikes on the to-do list, pack plenty of water and remember that leaving earlier in the day will help make every step more enjoyable.

A well-deserved journey to scenic Jackson Hole puts travelers within easy reach of exciting destinations like Grand Teton National Park. All year long, this national park has something thrilling to offer outdoor adventurers whether they’re looking to relax, enjoy nature photography, make the most of wildlife watching, or spend time hiking and climbing their way through a stay. While Grand Teton National Park has a long list of beloved landmarks waiting to be explored, the park is also home to some hidden gems that are well worth adding to an itinerary. When you’re looking for something a little different the next time you’re here, the following stops are sure to inspire.

Find the Perfect Cabin for Your Stay!

Spend time at Leigh Lake

With good reason, many Grand Teton National Park-bound travelers will set their sights on well-known bodies of water like Jenny Lake and Jackson Lake during a visit. Yes, these lakes are breathtaking but if you’re looking to enjoy time lakeside at a place that’s a bit more off the beaten path, you’ll want to set your sights on Leigh Lake instead. This beautiful lake is adorned with clear waters and stunning mountain scenery to enjoy from a place on its beach. To reach Leigh Lake, be sure to head southeast of Mount Moran where you can enjoy time on a trail that leads you to the water. This tranquil spot is always a treat so don’t be surprised if you end up lingering a little longer than you planned.

Enjoy an Afternoon at String Lake

Yet another one of the fantastic hidden gems in Grand Teton National Park for travelers to check out while they’re here is String Lake. While more well-known lakes at the park are likely to be packed on a busy summer day, String Lake takes you out of the way and far from the crowds so you can truly enjoy some much-needed tranquility in nature. The lake is dotted with benches and there’s a hiking trail that runs around the perimeter so you can make the most of the view from varying angles. String Lake is a wonderful place to pack a picnic lunch and enjoy a fresh-air meal or take a refreshing swim in the water. If you’re willing to bring your gear with you, String Lake is a great place to enjoy paddleboarding or kayaking for a fun afternoon out on the water. Just be prepared for the chilly water as this lake is the result of glacier run-off and it maintains cool temperatures year-round.

Add Schwabacher Landing to Your List

If your Grand Teton National Park tour plans include time at the iconic Snake River, you’re going to want to expand on the fun with a stop at Schwabacher Landing. Sitting along the river’s east shore, Schwabacher Landing is an idyllic place to enjoy wildlife watching and the trail leading to this location is relatively flat and less than two miles total. A trip here around sunset is highly recommended as both the mountains and evening colors are beautifully reflected in the water. Be sure to bring a camera for this stop that comes with a reputation for incredible views.

Hike Your Way to Hidden Falls

For travelers with a passion for cascade hunting, Grand Teton National Park is home to Hidden Falls. Much as the name indicates, these cascades aren’t necessarily the easiest to find, but they’re certainly worth the effort. To locate Hidden Falls, you’ll need to follow Cascade Creek and hike your way to the waterfall opening. The Hidden Falls Trail is about a mile long in total and is moderately difficult, so you’ll want to be sure you have on appropriate hiking boots and outdoor apparel. Once you reach Hidden Falls, you’ll be treated to sights of cascades that flow nearly 100 feet off the ground. It’s truly a sight to behold and might just be the highlight of your stay.

Stop by the Chapel of the Transfiguration

A really unique and memorable experience is waiting for you in Grand Teton National Park when you make time to drop by the Chapel of the Transfiguration. Located in Moose, this chapel is a small log structure within scenic surroundings. It was designed specifically to frame the Cathedral Group of peaks in the park through the window just behind the altar. Come and see for yourself and enjoy some time adding another amazing stop to your park itinerary.

They’re kept well maintained by an endless seasonal supply of antlers left behind by the herd over at the National Elk Refuge nearby.

Enjoy a Float Trip Down the Snake River

By Memorial Day, temperatures are finally warm enough for visitors to enjoy a scenic float trip down the Snake River while they’re in town. This is a great way to get on the water, enjoy wildlife-watching, and spend quality time with family and friends. There are a variety of local outfitters that offer guided float trips so you can enjoy peace of mind and all the gear you’ll need along the way.

Whether you’re one for nature photography or simply enamored with breathtaking views, these destinations both have everything you’re looking to enjoy and more.

Take Holiday Photos in Town Square

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on gratitude while spending quality time with family and friends. When you find yourself in Jackson Hole this time of year, you can capture those moments on camera by planning to take photos at iconic Town Square. Here, you’ll find four massive arches made of elk antlers that are shed seasonally at the nearby refuge. These arches are unique and stunning, making for a great photo opportunity that might just end up being worthy of your annual holiday card! Once you’ve grabbed your photos, you can spend some time checking out the many charming shops and restaurants that adorn Town Square as well. It’s a great place to hang out, people-watch, and enjoy some downtime this holiday.

Hit the Slopes

If you stick around until the day after Thanksgiving, you just might be one of the first on the ski slopes when Jackson Hole Mountain Resort kicks off its opening day. Whether you’re new to skiing or a pro on the snow, taking time to explore some of the first tracks at the ski resort when ski season opens is always a thrill! They have trails fit for skiers of all skill levels and plenty of options for booking ski lessons if you need a refresher or it’s your first time giving the sport a try. Of course, the après ski scene here is just as appealing as the slopes when fresh powder falls!
