The Best Hikes To Do With Kids in Grand Teton National Park
Hiking is a healthy fun way to get outside with your family, and Grand Teton National Park is the perfect place! These are out top picks for the best hikes to do with kids in Grand Teton National Park!
Everyone has their own little slice of heaven that they like to visit, and for our family, it’s one of the many nation’s national parks. Grand Teton is the perfect place for when you want to escape from reality and enjoy some solitude. When it comes to visiting a national park, chances are you will be doing some hiking. If you’re looking for a way to make hiking more enjoyable for your kids, here are the best hikes to do with kids in Grand Teton National Park with your family.
Hidden Falls and Jenny Lake
One of the fun things to do is to take the ferry instead of doing the entire hike and do a short hike to make it to hidden falls. While the boat ride is nice, the hike itself is short and enjoyable for kids. The total hike is about 5 miles roundtrip, but it’s only 1 mile total if you take the boat. Hidden Falls is super tall, and there are a few smaller waterfalls on your way, making for a great pit stop for snacks. This place does get a bit crowded, but it’s still worth the hike for the fun sites.
If you want an easy hike with a mountain view, Jackson Lake along Lakeshore Trail is the best way to do that! It’s a leisure walk along the shore of Jackson Lake and gives you unobstructed views of the Tetons. You only walk through a short forested area before you reach the lake, and the entire walk is two miles depending on how long you decide to walk around.
String Lake and Leigh Lake
This hike follows String Lake, where you can see views of the mountain range and the lake. You can hike around the lake as much as you want and then turn back to head back to your campsite or go on another hike. Throughout the entire hike, there is a partial shade of pine trees all around you. You cross a bridge that takes you through the two lakes, and then you can see large fish just a few feet below!
Don’t forget your swimsuit! These are great lakes to swim in after (or before) your hike!
The 3.3 mile round trip hike to Taggart Lake was easily our favorite hike in Grand Teton National Park. It does have some incline on the way to the lake, but wow, the views are sooo worth it. The Grand Teton range is picture perfect and the lake is breathtakingly beautiful. You and your kids will definitely want to soak your feet once you arrive!
If you’re looking for a great hike to do with your kids, hopefully, one of these options works well for you! All of these are nice easy hikes making them great for kids of all ages.
