This trip takes you north along the open east shore of Jackson Lake, with some exploring into larger inlets. This is a good trip for those seeking more of a big lake, open-water paddle, traveling as far north as desired before returning to Colter Bay. Unlike the more protected route of trip 25, this one follows the open shoreline of Jackson Lake, with exposure to winds and waves that can build up across the open stretches to the west. Use caution and stay near shore. After paddling through the relatively protected Colter Bay, continue around the large lobe of land to your right, and head north into Jackson Lake, sticking to the shoreline as much as necessary as you head north. Be aware of afternoon winds and accompanying waves. Attractions include a taste of big lake paddling, while staying close to shore, bird watching, and fishing.
