"Garnet Canyon is a narrow V-shaped canyon in the upper Tetons. The canyon is surrounded by Disappointment Peak, Teepe Pillar, Middle Teton, and Nez Perce. Garnet Creek, formed by runoff from Middle Teton Glacier, cascades through the canyon on its journey to Bradley Lake. Spalding Falls, at an elevation of 10,000 feet, is the highest named waterfall in the national park. The falls cascades 80 feet off the rocky cliffs into The Meadows, a boulder-strewn meadow framed by the jagged peaks. Below The Meadows, at the mouth of Garnet Canyon, the creek cascades another 50 feet over Cleft Falls. The hike begins in Lupine Meadows and follows the strenuous route to Surprise and Amphitheater Lakes before veering west into Garnet Canyon. The Garnet Canyon Trail is primarily used by rock climbers tackling Middle Teton, Teepe Pillar, or Grand Teton. All off-trail hiking requires registration at the ranger station."
