    Labor Day weekend I completed the Teton High route, which is a version of Paul Petzoldt High Adventure route. Instead of following his exact route at the northern end of the Tetons, bushwhacking from Jackass Pass to Lake of the Woods and then further north to grassy lake road, it takes berry creek down to Jackson Lake, and finishes off at Glade Creek TH along grassy lake road near Flagg Ranch.

    This is not the more common Teton Crest trail. Instead of heading down cascade canyon at hurricane pass, the route heads north to table mountain, and eventually links up with Teton crest trail 008 further north. The route stays in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness most of the time, meaning there are no permits required unless you spend the night along the death canyon shelf or in the berry creek area.

    The Route is approximately 73 miles from Jackson pass to Glade Creek, and I measured a little over 18,000 feet of gain over the trip.

    I have updated my blog with a data book and a trip report yesterday, and I will be updating it this week with my GPX files too. I will be writing a more extensive trip report for TrailGroove magazine in the coming months.

    Let me know what you think :-)

    Lastly, along the route I met two south bound hikers near badger creek doing the exact same route. They were from the Teton Valley in Idaho. If you know them, or if you guys read this, please PM me. I want to find out some more info about your southbound trip.

    Recently they added Google earth to the maps at the end of the articles. So if you have the plug in installed, you can do a fly through of the route.
