    Orange County/Long Beach Chapter of Great Outdoors presents:

    Grand Teton National Park Trip with Day Hikes 

    July 13-20, 2022

    Trip Leader Contact: Doug Cable, dccable2@verizon.net



    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.

    Special COVID Related Requirements:

    These may be updated/amended by the time of the event

    As summer in Los Angeles and environs heats up, this is an opportunity to escape to the High Sierra. You‘ll notice stunning vistas along the way. Beautiful alpine flowers, tumbling waterfalls and serene lakes await you. In the evenings, you can watch the sunset wash the peaks with Alpenglow. We will hike up Big Pine Canyon to the Big Pine Lakes basin and establish a bae camp at Sixth lake, from where we will spend days exploring. Since this is a base camp style trip, people can shorten their stay as they see fit.

    This trip is limited to 7 hikers plus the leader.

    Although not part of the official trip, it is recommended to drive up on 8/14 and camp near the trailhead, Big Pine Creek Campground, to better acclimatize to the altitude of about 8,000 feet and rest up for the hike the next day.

    8/15: Hike from the trailhead near the Big Pine Creek Campground to the shores of First Lake; 5 miles & 2350 ft gain. The trail goes up Big Pine Lakes Canyon, which was arved by the glaciers so is narrow and steep sided, passes the historic Lon Chaney cabin and 2 sets of waterfalls. This is likely to be a moderately strenuous day due to the altitude effects, so we will pause at First Lake to allow us to acclimatize.

    8/16: Hike from First Lake to Summit Lake; 2.5 miles, 930 ft. gain. This will be our base camp. We will pass along 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Lakes enroute which are milky turquoise in color from the glacial powder carried down from the glacier.


    8/17 – 8/19: Various day hikes to explore the Big Pine Lakes basin and the Palisade Glacier. We will have spectacular views of the Glacier and the Palisade Crest which averages 14,000 feet, and is the southernmost glacier in the United States. It is estimated to be about two miles in length and several hundred feet thick. The trip to the glacier tops out at about 13,000 feet.

    8/20: Return to the trailhead via Black Lake.

    You will need your ten essentials and appropriate backpacking gear. Please request a list if needed. Carpooling is recommended to reduce fuel costs and vehicle emissions.

    Driving southbound on the 405 FWY from Long Beach, take 73 HWY South in Costa Mesa. Exit the 73 at MacArthur Blvd. and head west toward the Pacific Ocean. (Note that the TOLL Road applies after the MacArthur Blvd. exit). Turn left at PCH in Newport Beach and head southbound. You will pass through Newport Beach village and Crystal Cove Park. Make a left at the El Moro Elementary school road. Keep right and you will see the Ranger Station entrance. After paying the day use fee, make your way past RV Park down the path to the lower and last parking lot adjacent to the amphitheater. Trailhead is at the edge of the parking lot. 

    After the hike, we can enjoy a refreshing dip in the ocean and a picnic on the beach. If you are interested, please bring swimming / beach attire and extra food.
