Camp and Hike

At 11,300 feet, Table Mountain is possibly the most beautiful climb this side of the Tetons and offers what may well be the very best view of the Grand Tetons. It's just far enough away to be able to see all three peaks and close enough to make out all the detail. 

There are 2 main trails with different distances but either way, you've got to climb over 4000 feet.

The Face trail is much steeper but also much shorter. It cuts out all of the switchbacks and 'B' lines it for the top. It's considerably shorter and you don't have to go very far before the view begins to open up and you can see the beauty of Teton Canyon and its surrounding peaks. (about 3.5 miles one way)

Huckleberry trail is much longer but also a much more gradual incline/decline. The trail follows and crosses North Fork Teton Creek making it a great spot to get a filtered water refill.It's not known as huckleberry for nothing. You just have to catch it at the right time (Mid-Late Summer depending on weather) and get to the bushes before everybody else picks them clean. (about 6.5 miles one way)

Snow started somewhere around 9500 feet but it's just little patches of snow across the trail until about 10,000 feet where there are large snow fields to cross. We went up and down the face trail after hearing reports that about 0.5 mile of Huckleberry was covered with snow and downed trees from an avalanche. When we first reached the summit, it was encompassed by a thick cloud and all we saw was white everywhere. Luckily we didn't get the snow and rain that were predicted and though we never saw the Grand, at least the clouds cleared up enough for us to see to the West. My 8 and 10 year old kids wore tennis shoes and had to change socks and use some bread bags and still had cold feet but all in all handled it pretty well.

I wasn't able to complete the hike, we went too early and got caught in snow, and lost the trail, and decided to turn around. I think I was on the Face trail? It was pretty steep. I'd love the chance to try again when the weather is right, and see those scenic vistas instead of threatening clouds.

We started early on 15/July/2017 and had a blast! I think even though there was some snow on huckleberry trail, I'd recommend going up the face and down huckleberry. Also the wildflowers are amazing!

This is a tough hike! But it is soooo worth it. Great view from the top and all along the way. Be smart about following the trail. I've gotten lost on the way down 2/4 of the times I've hiked this. We always see moose.

Table Rock was the most beautiful hike I've ever been on! I just recently moved from Southern CA to Rexburg, and I thought I knew what beautiful was. Boy, was I wrong! Along majority of the trail, you can see and hear the rushing water, and uf you look up around you, you'll see so many waterfalls. The last mile is pretty tough, but just take your time, and DON'T GIVE UP! The view of the Grand Tetons is absolutely worth it! Just always pay attention to your surroundings, you are in the wilderness. We saw fresh mountain lion tracks in the mud, and on our way back, we heard some loud meows... so be careful but have fun!
