New Hiking Website for Grand Teton National Park
New web site offers expanded, in-depth trail information in a user-friendly format
TetonHikingTrails.com offers detailed information on more than 40 hikes, including trail descriptions, key features, pictures, maps, elevation profiles and more. Additionally, the site is organized to make it easier for hikers to compare and choose trails that best suit their hiking preferences. Before the launch of TetonHikingTrails.com, hikers had difficulty finding detailed web-based trail information for the Grand Tetons. Most existing sites list only a handful of the most popular trails, and provide only limited information without regard to individual hikers’ skill level or preferences.
With this new website, hikers can choose trails based on either location within the park, hiking difficulty, key features, or they can simply look at an alphabetical listing. TetonHikingTrails.com uses a mathematical formula to rate trail difficulty which gives hikers a comparable reference point between trails. This information will benefit any day hiker; including people looking for a short stroll to a nearby lake, to the long distance hiker looking to visit Cascade Canyon, as well as hikes of varying lengths and difficulty in-between.
TetonHikingTrails.com is the sister site to RockyMountainHikingTrails.com, launched in 2012, HikinginGlacier.com, launched in 2011, and HikingintheSmokys.com, the number one hiking website for the Great Smoky Mountains. Launched in April of 2008, HikingintheSmokys.com has received more than 964,000 visits over the last 12 months, and currently ranks 21st among all 367 hiking websites, according to Alexa.com.
