GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK ACTIVITIES
Park rangers provide a wide variety of activities for park visitors including hikes, slide shows, childrens's activities, and wildlife viewing. While most programs are offered during the busy summer season, fall brings wildlife caravans for elk watching and spring is the time to visit if you would like to see the sage grouse strut.
December through March, rangers offer guided snowshoe hikes from the Moose Visitor Center. Call (307) 739-3399 for more details and to make reservations.
Look in the current park newspaper, available on the web or at any park entrance stations, for a detailed listing of available programs.
Permits are not required for mountaineering, but climbers on overnight trips must have a backcountry permit to camp or bivouac. Download the Backcrountry Camping brochure for more detailed information.
Current and detailed information is available at the Jenny Lake Ranger Station in the summer, (307) 739-3343. In the winter call (307) 739-3309.
From June through September, all Garnet Canyon permits and permits for any trip involving technical climbing or mountaineering should be picked up at the Jenny Lake Ranger Station.
There are lots of opportunities for enjoying water in Grand Teton National Park. The Snake River flows through the park and features world-class fishing, unparalleled wildlife viewing, and mild rapids. Many of the more accessible lakes are open for a variety of activities.
