Glade Creek

Glade Creek Professional Review and Guide

"Most people don’t think about this section of Grand Teton National Park, so plan on having Glade Creek and most of the north-trails section mostly to yourself.

This hike actually starts outside of the park in the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway, a 24,000-acre slice of wilderness sandwiched between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. It’s just as undeveloped as the parks—in fact, it is more wild than some parts of the parks. The trailhead sign says that it’s 3.5 miles to the park boundary, but it seems shorter."

"A short, easy hike in the northern-most section of the park"

"Glade Creek begins just east of Grassy Lake in the John D. Rockefeller Jr. Memorial Parkway. The creek flows south, joining the Snake River above Jackson Lake. The Glade Creek Trail heads into Grand Teton National Park along the west side of Jackson Lake en route to Jenny Lake. This hike follows the first 1 .5 miles to Glade Creek on an easy, well-defined path. The trail heads due south through a dense conifer forest en route to a wide valley overlooking the Snake River."
