The trails in the central and southern Teton Range are wildly popular and are justifiably packed with hikers and backpackers, who typically have to reserve a permit well in advance. At the same time, the paths in the northern part of the same range remain virtually unknown. The mountains here are slightly less spectacular than the more famous southern peaks, but the meadows and wildflowers are better and the wildlife is more abundant, including a healthy population of grizzly bears, a species that is rare elsewhere in Grand Teton National Park. This area receives relatively little trail maintenance, and several of the creek crossings are very challenging early in the summer.
