Add other filters for a specific region, difficulty, dog friendly, distance and more. Be sure to “Allow this site to access your location” for the map to locate you with GPS so a blue locator will show you are in relation to the trail.
The snow-line is low due to cold April and May temps and precipitation. Aim for lower elevation, south facing trails. Avoid the mud, especially if you’re on a bike. Please respect dog-friendly trails and responsibly recreate with your pup.

Hole Hiking Experience – Early Summer Update
With the start of summer, snow melts at higher elevations and wildflowers dance in the meadows. With over 1000 species of flowering plants in Jackson Hole, summer meadows are spectacular and share a mosaic of colors. By the solstice, energy reaches a seasonal high with young animals, young birds calling from the nest, blooming flowers, sunny days, and lots of visitors.
97% of Jackson Hole is protected thanks to our National park and National forest public lands. Millions of acres to explore. Make sure to tread lightly and give wildlife space.
Enjoy the beauty of summer and maybe we will see you on the trail. HHE offers daily guided hiking and wildlife tours for all levels.
The Hole Hiking Experience
Camping: What to Know
Campsites fill up fast, so be sure to plan ahead. Camping in Bridger-Teton National Forest is first come first serve, while in Grand Teton National Park it’s all on a reservation system. Check the website if you want to camp in the park.
Check local fire restrictions before making a fire. Use only existing fire rings and make sure the fire is truly out before departing. As of July 1, we are under Stage 1 Fire Restrictions. This means:
Lighting, building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire, barbecue or grill is allowed
only at designated recreation sites such as established campgrounds or picnic areas. Use of
portable stoves and lanterns using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel, or use of a
fully enclosed sheepherder type stove with a spark arrester screen is permitted.
• Smoking is allowed only in an enclosed vehicle, building (unless otherwise prohibited),
developed recreation site, or while in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or
cleared of all flammable materials (i.e. parking lots, developed campsites, or locations
surrounded by water).
Store anything that smells in a hard sided vehicle or bear proof box to keep bears and people safe. If you’re not near a vehicle, hang items four feet away from trunk and ten feet above the ground. Pack out what you bring in.
