Trip Leader Contact: Doug Cable, firstname.lastname@example.org
Preliminary Trip notes for Scouting Hikes, Grand Teton National Park
July 13 to 20th.
Save the date and make your reservations.
July 13 to 20 we will scout the day hike trails in the Grand Teton National Park.
There are multiple trails that range from easy, to easy/moderate, to moderate, to strenuous and to very strenuous. We will not be doing the very strenuous hikes. Which trails we pick will depend on the preferences of the group. There will be hikes for every level of fitness. We can also break up into several groups depending on what people want to do, but I'm hoping not to do that. Nevertheless, there will be no solo hiking because the area has Grizzly Bears. Bring a bear bell.
Participants will be responsible for their own transportation, food and lodging. Make your lodging reservations now. Sharing of lodging is encouraged to decrease cost and facilitate communications. Lodgings available include tent cabins, camping, cabins. You can click on the names of Luton's Teton Cabins, Rustic Inn, Colter Bay Village Tent Cabins and Jackson Lake Lodge to go to their websites. Luton’s Teton Cabins is recommended, as is the Rustic Inn. Larry Purtle and Frederick Brown have each reserved a Tent Cabin in the Park. Each cabin can accommodate four non snoring sleepers. Combined, Larry and Frederick have four extra beds. Space is still available in the Jackson Lake Lodge within the park as of this writing. Coulter Bay campground is available. There are also motels in Jackson. This is not really a campout; it is a series of dayhikes.
There is a modest Great Outdoors cost of $20 to cover planning logistics. I have 2 books of potential hikes and also park information. We will have a zoom orientation meeting prior for planning. This entire adventure is a scouting trip.
