Trail Running in Jackson Hole, WY
About Jackson Hole Trail Running
Get some miles under your shoes with some of Jackson’s trails, which are perfectly tailored for trail running. In Grand Teton National Park, the popular Taggart Lake is a great spot for relatively mellow terrain, beginning flat and hard-packed before weaving through a meadow and forest and opening up to spectacular Teton views. For a six-to-seven mile run in a less-visited northeastern part of the park, stop by Two Ocean Lake (access it via the Moran entrance), whose trail features beautifully rolling terrain. The path around Two Ocean Lake is about six miles, with the option of taking a spur from the west end to Grand View Point, which offers panoramic views. Be sure to bring bear spray on any run in Grand Teton National Park, as there are both grizzlies and black bears present.
