This long day trip takes you all the way across the south end of Jackson Lake and back along parts of the south shore, offering spectacular views of the Teton Range, particularly Mount Moran. This long day trip is an extension of trips 25 and 26, going all the way across the southern end of Jackson Lake into Moran Bay. Be sure to read those two descriptions for additional details. This description picks up at the west side of Elk Island. Since this can be a long paddle, with several open-water stretches, know the weather forecast before heading out. Be aware of afternoon winds and accompanying waves, storm buildup, and motorboat wakes. Attractions include open-water paddling on Jackson Lake, islands to explore, views of the Teton Range, bird watching, and fishing.
