This easygoing but rewarding shoreline jaunt leaves the crowds at Colter Bay behind. The forested habitat is ever-changing, and the views across Jackson Lake are amazing. It’s a flexible route, too: Add an overnight at one of the park’s best low-elevation campgrounds for the perfect first-time backcountry adventure. The trail is hikable from mid-May through October. In the hottest months of the summer, it’s most enjoyable in early morning or late afternoon. Dawn and dusk are the best times for spotting wildlife. Sunset behind the Tetons is magical from Colter Bay.
