These mountains are just as beautiful as their more famous neighbors to the north, the Tetons, but require a bit more effort to explore. For that reason, you may be alone when hiking to awesome places such as the Cirque of the Towers, a renowned rock-climbing area. Part of the range is on native American land and access is sometimes restricted. You will likely encounter a variety of wildlife here.
