Grand Teton National Park – Wyoming

Grand Teton National Park Website – https://www.nps.gov/grte/index.htm Wyoming

So after we left Yellowstone National Park in the rain and cold, we took many hours to drive south to Grand Teton National Park, which is connected to her more famous neighbor by a 10 mile road.

We drove through the clouds and the rain until we reached Gros Ventre Campground, where Uncle John had help from Tree Rider and The Pres with setting up camp.  While it is not the prettiest campground in the park, it is the largest in the park.  It does not take reservations in advance, but almost never fills up.  We’d spend two nights here.

So, the Batona Trail is South Jersey’s PREMIER (also, only) long distance hiking trail.  It can be a fun adventure to spend 3 or 4 or 5 days backpacking the whole thing.

But some folks don’t have 3 or 4 or 5 days in a row.  Other folks (we call them intelligent people who aren’t trying to kill their bodies) don’t backpack.  But the Batona is still awesome and you still want to do it.

This post is for you… how to split the Batona Trail up!  I’ll be putting down the distances between potential parking, which you can use to figure out how to complete either by doing out-and-backs or doing a car shuttle.  I’ll be sticking to [...]
