Family Friendly Start from Jackson Lake Lodge and turn right to skirt Christian Pond. Hike this as an out-and-back, or combine with Emma Matilda Lake to get a good loop in. You're likely to see a moose on this trail!

Description

Christian Pond is known for its diversity of waterfowl including the Trumpeter Swan which nest here. The shallowness of the pond results in summer water temperatures that are typically warmer than most lakes in the area. Additionally, the pond is partially covered by water lilies, perfect Moose habitat!

If you enjoy the smell of horse crap then you'll absolutely love this trail! Used the grand view trail to make this a loop. 4.2mi
