Description

The eastern section of Phelps Lake, Spur Trail, has awe-inspiring views of multiple Teton peaks, including: Albright Peak (10,552'), Prospectors Mountain (11,241'), Mount Hunt (10,783'), and Apres Vous Peak (9,508').

Spur Trail connects Phelps Lake Overlook trail to Boulder Ridge Trail and the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve (LSR Preserve).

Spur Trail has a great view of Open Canyon and its U-shaped nature. This canyon was formed during the last glacial maximum approximately 15,000 years ago!
