Description

The trail begins at the Forks of Cascade Canyon and terminates at Hurricane Pass as it leads to Schoolroom Glacier. Most of this trail allows backcountry camping with a permit. The South Fork Cascade Canyon Trail is part of the Teton Crest Trail. Enjoy the stunning views of Teton Ridge and Table mountain as you hike.

The grade of South Fork becomes slightly more precipitous as it heads towards Hurricane Pass.
