If you wish to spend your day hiking, there are several trailheads in the Colter Bay District with hikes ranging from easy to moderate/strenuous.

  • Hermitage Point trailhead: Access the trailhead from the south end of the Colter Bay parking lot. A network of trails rolls through lodgepole forests, sagebrush meadows and wetlands near Jackson Lake, or take the old wagon road and trek to Jackson Lake Lodge.
