Though the name confuses some visitors, Two Ocean Lake is a single lake that sits on the Continental Divide in Grand Teton National Park. It is an example of many lakes that were created through the ice age, providing crystal clear waters and incredible scenery. In fact, it can be reached via varied trails that circle around it through nearby forests.
The lake drains into the local Pacific Creek and feeds much of the Snake River. Local trails, though popular are still not as frequented by hikers, backpackers and climbers as other routes, given the high number of local bears. However, the trail covers about six miles and easy to navigate, though the entire loop takes about three hours to do.
Local highlights include wildlife and varied terrain. Woods, meadows and wildflowers are common, as well as grizzlies, coyotes, deer, squirrels, martens and elk.
