Colter Bay Lakeshore Hike

100 Colter Bay Village Road

happyly approved

Hike this mostly flat and scenic trail alongside Jackson Lake!

Accessible via the Colter Bay Campground entrance, the Colter Bay Lakeshore hike is a 2.5 mile mostly flat hike and a nice way to move the legs and enjoy beautiful views of Jackson Lake and the Tetons. We like the option to make it longer or shorter (the first part of the island is .4 miles so you can easily do a 1 mile out and back, which is also stroller friendly).  There is little to no elevation gain and you also have the option to hang out at beautiful Jackson Lake for a picnic post hike.  


The Lakeshore hike has a wonderful bench and small beach area at the end of the out and back, less than half a mile each way portion. The views of the marina, Jackson Lake, and the Tetons are some of the best around. The trail is wide and allows or safely organizing your group while having some distance.
