New website for Teton hikers offers forecasts, trail info

The time for lacing up your hiking boots is here. And just in time for the summer season — when hundreds of hikers will descend upon the area — TetonHikingTrails.com has launched.

The user-friendly website offers hikers interested in Grand Teton National Park a “source of trail information at their fingertips,” Jeff Doran, the site’s founder, said.

TetonHikingTrails presents detailed information on more than 40 hikes in the park such as trail descriptions and key features, elevation profiles and pictures of the trails as well as maps. Each trail is listed alphabetically, and the site is set up to make it easier for hikers to compare and choose trails that best suit their hiking abilities and preferences.

The site presents Grand Teton trails grouped by general location within the park, such as trails near Jenny Lake, Jackson Lake or Teton Village. More precise locations are listed in the table on the home page, with trailhead directions on each individual trail page.

Links to AccuWeather.com, a hiking checklist, lodging in the park as well as Jackson Hole, Teton Valley and more locations in the immediate region and other outdoor activities are part of the information the website provides.
