Gros Ventre Mountains

Often overshadowed by the neighboring Teton Mountains, the Gros Ventre Mountains are a local secret for tremendous mountain scenery and escapes into secluded mountain destinations. With the Gros Ventre Wilderness at the heart of the mountains, towering peaks and euphoric mountain environments are up every canyon. Hundreds of miles of hiking and backpacking routes take adventurous hikers through some of the most underrated mountain scenery in the region. Closer to Jackson Hole, both the Sleeping Indian (aka, Sheep Mountain) and Jackson Peak provide incredible hiking and new and exciting challenges. A local’s favorite for camping, Shadow Mountain stretches out into the northern reaches of the mountains along the eastern edge of the Valley of Jackson Hole.
