Leaving from the Phoenix area at the end of September for a trip up north. Going to be heading to Las Vegas, Salt Lake, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, back south to Zion, then back home. Looking for suggestions.

Any good off-road/hiking trails close to the route we are taking?
Any prime camping spots to look for near the parks mentioned above? Preferably dispersed sites.
Restaurants, roadside attractions, etc are also welcome.

Thanks man. I'm stoked. I'll make a thread when I get back with photos and videos. One of the guys I'm going with is documenting the whole trip. And I'll be taking a ton of photos along the way.

Looks like a great trip, hope your weather holds.

For this route, I'm partial to the hiking in the Tetons, the tourists should not be so bad this late.

Breakfasts in Jackson are Cafe Genevieve or the Bunnery or Persephone Bakery. Snake River Brewing is a safe bet if you like beer and decent food. Lots of eating options in town.

Dispersed camping is harder to find (but not impossible) near a national park, Gros Ventre campground is well-located if you're in the area a day or two. More options around West Yellowstone.

Awesome thank you! Sounds like we are going to do a bit of hiking on the trip. Hoping to explore some restaurants in the areas as well, but we will ne camping for the most part. I appreciate the camp spot as well I will check it out!

We did that trip a couple years back. The fly fishing was outstanding. After glacier we went to Watertown International Peace Park in Canada then on to the Olympic National Park in WA.

Late to the party here right before your trip but a couple of suggestions if it is not too late:

Just west of Las Vegas is the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Tons of cool hiking trails and very photogenic. I stop in every time I am in Vegas. Just a few miles from town, super easy to get to. https://www.blm.gov/programs/national-conservation-lands/nevada/red-rock-canyon

Adjacent to Red Rock is a Nevada State Park called Spring Mountain Ranch State Park. It is a cool "oasis" in the mountains, some good local history and an artesian well. You could hit both Red Rock and Spring Mountain in one trip, they are right next to each other. http://parks.nv.gov/parks/spring-mountain-ranch

Safe travels and looking forward to a (photo-heavy) trip report....
