Help! Need help planning a route in Grand Teton NP

Looking at heading to GTNP next September. The plan is to do a 3 day/2 night hike. Would like to include the Jenny Lake area or Phelps Lake. I have to admit that Death Canyon in name alone is intriguing. I would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks in advance!

Re: Help! Need help planning a route in Grand Teton NP

We had a great trip, based on a recommendation from a park ranger.  Left car at Jenny Lake, shuttle to Teton Village to ride tram up to top.  Hiked down to join Teton Crest Trail and camped first night on shelf above Death Canyon.  Second day hiked to Hurricane pass (super windy), camped second night at little lake below Hurricane pass after switch backs on second night - awesome views of the backside of Grand Teton.  From here we could have finished out trip to Jenny lake within your 3 day/two night timeframe, but we tried and failed to press on the Paintbrush divide and exit to Jenny lake, but were turned back by lighting strikes.  We took the boat shuttle across Jenny Lake back to our car.  Views from Hurricane pass were awesome.  Website for our trip.
