Trail Run at Schwabacher Landing

Rate this Adventure Wyoming Schwabacher Landing

Added by Brynn Schmidt

It's typically very quiet on the trail, most people stay around the parking lot. You'll catch some of the best views of the Grand Tetons from this location right along the Snake River.

If you are looking for one of the most scenic trail runs in the country, check out the trail at Schwabacher Landing. The trail starts at the parking lot with an elevation of 6,545 feet and is flat. It is an easy trail with no elevation gain, but the altitude may be higher than what you are used to so take that into consideration. This trail is out and back and at most is a four-mile run if you take it the end and back to the lot.

You may see a moose along the way and while it is doubtful that you would run into a bear here, you should carry bear spray if you are alone. Both black and grizzly bear do roam the park.

Mornings and evenings are amazing here, but that is when it will be crowded with many photographers. Most of them stay right near the parking lot and won't get in your way. If you have a decent camera, snap some great photos while you are there before or after your run. There is an awesome spot for breakfast/dinner and beverages just a few miles away in Moose at Dornan's. The Chuckwagon has a hearty breakfast and is an easy stop if you have been at Schwabager for the morning. Evening food and beverage as well.

From Jackson Hole, WY it is about 16 miles north, east of Hwy 89. There is a small gravel road that you take off of Hwy 89 for a couple miles down to the parking lot. The road can be a little rough depending on the time of year and weather conditions. Summer and fall are the best times to visit this area. This road can be treacherous in the winter time.
