Phillips Pass Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Located 10 miles west of Jackson, near Teton Pass, in northwestern Wyoming. An awesome day hike into the subalpine and alpine country on the very southern fringe of the Teton Range and the Jedediah Smith Wilderness."
--Bill Hunger, Hiking Wyoming (Falcon Guides).
"Phillips Canyon lies between Mount Glory and Phillips Ridge near Teton Pass at the far south end of the Teton Range. This hike leads to Ski Lake, a circular, deep blue lake tucked into a mountain cirque on the west end of Phillips Canyon. Along the way, the trail winds through a lodgepole pine forest and an open meadow bursting with wildflowers. Phillips Canyon opens out into this meadow. The trail winds past the canyon, crossing a beautiful stream en route to Ski Lake. From the lake are views of the Gros Ventre Range in the east and the Jackson Hole valley."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Grand Teton National Park (Day Hike Books).
"The Teton Pass Trail Network is a system of inter-connected, multiuse trails located between the town of Wilson, Teton Pass, and Phillips Canyon. The trail system is a short drive west of Jackson and is a popular destination for day-hiking, biking, and crosscountry skiing."
"Phillips Ridge lies along the far south end of the Teton Range. The two-mile ridge begins near Teton Pass, west of Jackson, and runs northeast along the southeast wall of Phillips Canyon. The Phillips Ridge Trail follows an unpaved service road through an Engelmann spruce and Douglas fir forest to a fire lookout on the ridge. From the ridge are great views of the valley, the Snake River Range, the Tetons, Rendezvous Peak, and the twin peaks of Mount Glory."
