Box Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Located 40 miles northwest of Jackson, in the south-central Teton Wilderness. A day hike or 2- to 3-day backpack that offers great access to the heart of the Teton Wilderness.
In 1987 a tornado ripped through the Box Creek area, toppling trees and leaving trunks and debris stacked 10- to 15-feet high in places. It also left a 14,000-acre swath of destruction behind. Never before had a tornado been recorded at such a high elevation. Since the blowdown, Forest Service, American Hiking Society, Sierra Club, and Student Conservation crews, as well as commercial outfitters, have worked to reopen the closed trails."
