[Cdt-l] Teton Range Alternate Route

I am riding the CDT Northbound with my 2 mules (or on alternates if the 
trail is too hard for them), and I am planning to go through Grand Teton 
instead of Yellowstone.
My route will be :
- CDT trail from Green river pass to Green river lake (more exactly, North 
from Green river lake, on FT146 Roaring fork)
- Then roaring fork road (Big bend) to Union pass road
- Then turn right North on Kinky Creek road (FR620) - Follow the Gros ventre 
river on this dirt road up to Lower Slide lake 
- Cross Jackson hole heading West through Granite canyon trail
- Then follow the  Alaska basin trail and the Teton crest trail (following 
the Teton range on the West side of the crest)
- Continue North through Winegar hole wilderness
and then head North through Idaho to join the CDT but I did not study the 
maps yet.

Part of my route is on dirt roads which is fine with mules but may be boring 
for you
I am in Pinedale right now and back on the trail next Monday.
Happy trails!

Hello CDT-L,

I know there are a lot of different alternate routes on the CDT like the 
Butte Cut-Off, Rocky Mountain National Park, San Juans, etc. However, I 
haven't seen much on if folks who hike the CDT string Yellowstone and the 
Winds together by going through the Tetons instead of the traditional 
Togwotee Pass way. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?  Has anyone done 

It seems as though it may be easy to get into the Tetons from Yellowstone, 
but I'm not very familiar with trails leading out of the southern Tetons 
into the Winds. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
