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."

"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."
