The distance from the Town of Jackson to the Lupine Meadows junction is about 21 miles. There is a water fountain and water re-filling station at the South Jenny Lake Visitor Services area. It's by the store. It's about one mile to that water source from the Lupine Meadows junction on the Teton Park Rd (the interior park road). If you need clean water, make the stop.

Early season at the trailhead - May
