Grizzly Lake Trailhead


This popular trailhead is located directly on the Gros Ventre Road, adjacent to the Gros Ventre River. It is a large pull off on either side of the road, and can accommodate several vehicles and trailers. This trailhead provides access to the Grizzly Lake Trail #4094 and the Blue Miner Lake Trail #4095. The Grizzly Lake Trail is multi-use and non-motorized year round. The Blue Miner Lake Trail is also non-motorized year round and enters the Wilderness immediately. The Grizzly Lake Trail offers a scenic day hike to Cynget Pond located about 3 miles up the trail. Views of the Tetons framed by the red hills of the Gros Ventre drainage are a highlight. The trail also provides access for a wonderful overnight backpack trip to Blue Miner Lake with the option of hiking to the top of Sleeping Indian Mountain. No facilities located on site, although there are several campgrounds with toilets close by. Single kiosk with a map. Road is gravel and in fair condition. No cellular service. Trailhead is large enough for trailer turnaround.
