Lakes in Alta
Jackson Lake Dam
The Jackson Lake Dam is located north of Jackson town in the state of Wyoming. It is inside Grand Teton National Park. It's a perfect place for fishing and hiking. The sunset here is also stunning as it goes down behind the Teton Mountains. Photographers will love this place as there are plenty of opportunities to explore. Put it on your checklist if you are around Yellowstone National Park area.
Hiking in Alta
Table Mountain
The Tetons are fantastic, but in many cases it's prettier to step away and look at them than it is to hike up one and look down. This hike has probably the best view of the Tetons, and when in season features an epic three-mile alpine wildflower walk to capture your attention when you are bored of looking at the Grand. There are two routes up Table Mountain -- North Fork of the Teton and "The Face" -- an unsigned and un-maintained trail which is not an official path yet receives heavy use. The Face is super steep but half the distance of the North Fork -- you decide! The North Fork Trail winds through a pretty canyon and over streams and through avalanche debris before reaching timberline and making the final steep push to the summit. From Table Mountain, the Tetons hulk into view, as do myriad peaks in either direction and the plains of eastern Idaho far below. Plan on 6 hours round trip, but you'll want to spend an eternity taking in that view.
