Phelps Lake

Phelps Lake Professional Review and Guide

"Phelps Lake, a low-elevation lake, is one of the most popular destinations in the park. It’s an easy day outing, but also an ideal place for the new backpacker to try that first night in the wilderness.

Phelps Lake is on the Valley Trail, which goes from Teton Village to the Lupine Meadows Trailhead. You can reach it from several trailheads, but the shortest, most popular route starts at the Death Canyon Trailhead (called Whitegrass Trailhead on some maps and signs)."
