Willow Flats

Willow Flats Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The NPS usually closes this route for wildlife resource reasons until at least July 1, but the closure can last longer, so be sure to check on the current status before planning to take this hike.

This is a great hike for people staying at Jackson Lake Lodge or Colter Bay, but pick a cool day because the route goes through open meadows and willow flats with little shade along the way. Unlike trails in the high canyons of the Teton Range, snow leaves this area earlier in the spring and usually doesn’t come as soon in the fall, which makes this route ideal for spring or fall hiking."

A very good day hike (or even half-day hike. It would be best to hike in the morning with the sun shining on the east-facing Teton range. Great photography opportunities with the range (especailly Mt. Moran) unobstructed and with a foreground of Jackson Lake. A lot of people on the early going but I had the last 6 miles all to myself (except for the abundant wildlife).
