Hey fellow hikers,

Quick question — partner & I are hiking the Teton Crest Trail in a couple weeks and the hardest part of planning (from afar) is thinking through how to get a ride from one end to the other. We would ideally like to drop off our car at the String Lake TH & get a ride to Phillips TH. How easy would hitchhiking be in the AM? The taxis all look damn expensive. Other experiences folks have had? Thanks!

From my experience, hitchhiking in the Jackson area is ridiculously easy. Waiting 20 minutes for a ride is about as long as I've ever waited. Just a few weeks ago, my son and I hitched from Jenny Lake VC to the airport and it took 3 rides. We waited a total of about 12-15 minutes for the 3 rides. A few days before that my son and brother in law hitched from town to Phillips TH in about 20 minutes. We walked from Albertson's to the Spring Gulch Road (<1/2 mile) and hitched from there. I usually hitch from the airport to trailheads in GTNP or into Yellowstone, all with relative ease.
