Description

Providing some of the best "bang for your buck" in the Park, Grand View Point requires little effort to get to but pays in spades with regards to views. The viewpoint offers an uninterrupted, panoramic vista overlooking Two Ocean Lake and Emma Matilda Lake to the east and almost the entire Teton Range to the west-southwest.

If you're trying to take that "perfect" Grand Teton picture, get up early and catch this viewpoint at sunrise.

Short Hike: Park at the Grand View Point parking area and follow the Grand View Point hike.

Family Friendly: Kids will be in awe of the vastness of this landscape, especially after they've earned this small summit.

Dry - Only challenging part is close to the peak. There is a rock scree that is difficult to navigate and taking the wrong path leaves you vulnerable on the face. This is ascending out of the Paintbrush side.
