Bridger Teton National Forest
The Bridger-Teton National Forest offers 3.4 million acres of pristine lands just to the east side of Grand Teton National Park. Known for its wild and scenic rivers, three wilderness areas (Bridger, Gros Ventre, and Teton Wilderness), winter recreation, and immense wildlife, there is never a dull moment to be found. Being one of the largest forest in the lower 48 states, it has a massive number of trail miles along with numerous developed camping opportunities that do not require any reservation.
One of the biggest causes of pride for the Forest is its three wilderness areas. The Teton Wilderness is home to over 585,238 acres of land and is host to the Huckleberry Lookout Guard Station, an old fire tower that has been restored for hikers and hunters who wish to stop by and spend the night or just to admire the amazing scenery. The Gros Ventre Wilderness is well known for its varied and numerous geological features, hosting a colorful collage of lavenders and oranges on its rocky slopes as well as being one of the world's largest concentrations of landslides. Lastly, in the Bridger Wilderness you will find the highest point in Wyoming, Gannett Peak rests on the shared boundary with Fitzpatrick Wilderness offering mountaineers a great and memorable challenge.
If interested in water opportunities, the Upper Snake River is known worldwide for its crystal clear waters, unique geology, numerous recreation adventures, and amazing varieties of wildlife. The ability to experience wild water, world-class fishing, great hiking, and memorable camping are just a few of the reasons everyone visits the Snake River Canyon.
Whether you visit in the winter or summer there are always great opportunities to enjoy the forest. Make sure you check the current conditions webpage to stay up to date on any restrictions or closures you might encounter.
