Description

Look for the start of the Cirque Trail on the south side of the Bridger Restaurants, and venture up the rocky and wildflower-covered Headwall before merging into the Cirque/Tensleep Bowl areas. Once into the Tensleep area, you'll be among sub-alpine forest and huge boulders. Looking up you'll also be just below the famous Corbet's Couloir ski run.

Continue past until you gain the east ridge, to just above the Sublette chairlift. Here, some scrambling is required, so use caution through this exposed area! The route/rocks are marked with red paint indicating the easiest path through this short section. Scramble up this craggy, knife-edged trail, until you arrive at the top of Corbet's Couloir! A few hundred feet more brings you to the top of the tram.

Cirque Trail is part of the Rendezvous Mountain Hillclimb, a classic trail race that goes down every August.

This trail, although rated at a "high" level of stamina, is actually quite a fun trail for such a short distance. The mountain provides great views, and the adventurous trail scrambles around cliffs and through pine groves. As a precaution, the beginning of the trail is very rocky, and I fell off the trail at one point when some rocks gave out, although there were more rocks below. Also, there is a large dead tree, which is honestly quite beautiful, except that some bees decided to make a home there, but you will be fine as long as you don't disturb them. Along the trail there are two shelters, one being a cave with a rope to climb up into, and the other a lookout stand made out of ropes and plywood. This trail provides great views of the Teton wilderness, and also provides the opportunity to see Pikas in the Summer and Fall. Overall, this is a great trail, and I would totally do it again! 4 days ago
