This trail begins at the Death Canyon Trailhead, just north of the White Grass Ranger Station Historic District and ends at an intersection with Fox Creek Pass
and Death Canyon Shelf
. To access Death Canyon Trail, drive to the Death Canyon Trailhead where the trail shortly joins the Valley Trail
and heads west. The trail is flanked by Albright Peak (10,552') to the north and Prospectors Mountain (11,241') to the south. After over 2 miles, the canyon widens and is intercepted by the Static Peak Divide
From here, the Death Canyon Trail continues west, then southwest, climbing steadily to Fox Creek Pass
. Like many of the Grand Teton trails, there is a nice camping area here. This camping zone extends from just west of the Alaska Basin Trail junction to .5 mi below Fox Creek Pass
and is available by permit.
