Grand Teton National Park lodging at Luton’s Teton Cabins
When you stay with us near Grand Teton National Park, we want you to have the time of your life, and stay safe while you do. Many of our guests enjoy hiking in the park. We have some recommendations for your safety and to preserve the experience for all who enjoy Grand Teton National Park.
First and foremost, you should not hike alone. Take a hiking buddy, and tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return. You should only hike on established trails. This is not only to protect you, but also to prevent soil erosion and protect the environment as well.
Next, make sure you have the proper hiking equipment with you. Take a map, plenty of drinking water, extra clothing, rain gear, and bear spray.
Remember to give horses right of way on the trails. Move off the trail when they are passing, and stay quiet.
To prevent surprising bears and other wildlife as you hike, make some noise to let everyone know you are coming. Avoid attracting bears by keeping food and packs with you at all times. If you do see a bear, don’t run from it. And if you are charged by a bear, don’t drop your pack.
Be aware that weather conditions can change quickly here in any season. Be ready to change your plans quickly if it becomes necessary due to dramatic changes in the weather. Whether you are going for a short walk, a long hike, or mountain climbing, know the weather forecast and be thoroughly prepared.
