Description

From Jackass Pass, head northwest on this awesome, flat bench trail as it winds around Survey Peak. For the duration of this trail you'll have awesome panoramic views of the Jedediah Smith Wilderness in the Targhee National Forest to the west, and Survey Peak (9,277') to the east. Though it's not inside Grand Teton NP, this trail is just as scenic, if not more so, than any trail inside the park.

The first half of this trail is forested, and sits atop a precipitous drop off into Jedediah Smith. However, the second half opens up to awesome views of Hominy Peak (8,344') to the southwest. As you near Boone Creek the trail drops down a steep pitch and is a little hard to spot at times. Eventually you'll meet up with Survey Peak Trail, which continues your journey around Survey Peak.

Flora & Fauna

This is Grizzly Bear country - keep your bear spray at the ready.
