The Granite Canyon Trail is a 10.7 mile out and back trail that features a beautiful lake.

The Granite Canyon Trail is located near Teton Village, Wyoming and is best for experienced hikers. The trail is typically trafficked from March until August. This hike can be shortened by taking the tram in Teton Village to the top of Rendezvous Mountain, and then hiking down to Marion Lake and out to the Granite Canyon Trailhead.

This is a great place to see wildflowers. This is also a good hike to get up into the Tetons, and it is not as demanding as some of the trails that lead into other areas in the Tetons.
