Hike Description

Hike Description

The Table Mountain hike is a steep and challenging 10-mile hike in Grand Teton National Park, but hikers are rewarded with  incredible views of the surrounding Tetons. Leaving from the Teton Canyon Trailhead on the Face Trail, ascent is extremely steep. There is even a warning sign at the bottom indicating that the trail is unmaintained and difficult, but the trail is quite clear to follow. And there are stunning views right from the beginning! At about 2.2 miles, the Face Trail ends at the North Teton Creek Trail, which continues another 1.3 miles to the summit. The trail becomes very rocky and steep again within about 0.2 miles of the summit.

The rocky 11,106-foot summit rewards you with fantastic 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, including the Teton Range, Mount Meek, Battleship Mountain, and the Wall.

The descent down the North Teton Creek Trail is steep, but not as steep as the ascent. The trail passes along several switchbacks through a beautiful wildflower field and down toward the North Fork Teton Creek, including several waterfalls. The trail ends about 200 meters down the road from the starting point.

Hikers wishing to avoid the steep parts of the Face Trail can both ascend and descend via the North Teton Creek Trail, adding about 2 miles.
