  4. It's not an official trail, but enough people come up this steep, wildlife-rich canyon between Death Canyon and Cascade Canyon to keep the trail in decent shape. But avalanches in 2014 have made about 1 mile of the trail quite horrible, it's covered with downed trees.

  7. 10,351-foot Taylor Mountain is a great bang for your hiking (or skiing) buck: offering expansive 360-degree views, and a feeling of being out there while never being further than several hours from a major highway.

  12. The hike to Mt. Meek is an unmaintained-but-well-worn trail to the summit of a Teton peak that isn't in Grand Teton National Park, which means you can bring your dog.

    This trek requires at least a full day and probably an overnight.
  18. It might not be as well known as Cirque of the Towers, but it's certainly close in terms of quality. This 12.4-mile loop features a lot of elevation and an equal amount of stunning scenery.

  19. A hike that will make you forget the Tetons, this takes you deep into the Gros Ventre range on well-established trails used mostly by area outfitters. Expect to see few people, lots of wildflowers, evidence of a HUGE landslide that happened in 2012 or 2013, some horseback riders, and lots of snow capped peaks, albeit not as jagged as the Tetons.
