Howdy! Long time reader, first time posting. I recently did a mini 2-night hike on the southern portion of the crest trail via the Tram; 1 night at Marion Lake, and out through Death Canyon and spending the 2nd night at Phelps Lake. However, after previous trips to the Driggs/GTNP area, during my next visit I want to hike Table Mountain. I have read some of the threads about Table Mountain, and I am curious if there is a route connecting Table Mountain to the South Fork Cascade trail. I am also wondering if this would be permitted by the NPS. My naive plan is: Day 1 pick up permits in at the visitor center and drive to Driggs, stay there for the night. Day 2: Enter through the Face Trail at Teton Canyon, up Table Mountain, camp at South Fork Cascade. Day 3: Camp at Upper Paintbrush/Holly Lake. Day 4: Hike out at String Lake. I'm open to any and all suggestions or advice!
