Day Hikes in Grand Teton National Park
Mount Hunt Divide sits at the base of Mount Hunt between Prospectors Mountain and Apres Vous Peak. From the stark, jagged terrain at the summit are magnificent top-of-the-world views of the southern Teton Range, including the predominant Rendezvous Mountain and Apres Vous Peak to the south (the back side of the Jackson Hole Ski Resort), Prospectors Mountain and the major Teton Peaks to the north, and the Gros Ventre Range far to the east.
From the Open Canyon Creek bridge (Hike 9), the trail continues parallel to the creek, then steeply zigzags up the canyon through spruce, fir, and pines to Mount Hunt Divide, a thousand feet below Mount Hunt. The divide lies between Open Canyon and Granite Canyon, the next drainage to the south.
