Amphitheater Lake

Amphitheater Lake was one of the hikes we did while in Jackson. The hike is a challenging hike for sure, it’s just over 10 miles with 3,000 ft of elevation gained in the hike.

While we were scared (just kidding) – we made it and had a blast! It’s one path up and down with lots of switchbacks. You pass Surprise Lake just before you get to Amphitheater Lake.

That’s Brent at the lake where we had lunch. We then climbed above the lake to see the view over the mountains. It was a short and steep climb, but the views back over the lake where beautiful.

All in all, if you’re up for a challenging day hike I would recommend this one. It is pretty heavily traveled, and exposed so head out early and bring plenty of water.
