I'm watching a movie right now, but check back tomorrow; I will go into more detail on the Gros Ventres. But a quick answer now-- yes, no permits or fees at all; few if any bridged stream crossings except at trailheads, and even then only a couple; definitely plan on 30's for nighttime temps.

I'll take a look at these with my hiking buddy and it should give us a good indication of the area. on any of these you recommend have you run into other hikers much? I don't mind the occasional meeting with others but just didn't want the masses as one may get in YStone or Glaciers logan pass.
I'm sure there are Grizzs in the area. how widespread. I pack bear spray. not too concerned with blacks. is the GV a national forest? guess you can pitch a tent where ever?
any other piece of advice you can give me is welcome. What part of the country are you in?
see any rangers. I'm not a rock climber please explain class 2? I've done scree fields, loose shale and hand over foot climbing but I'm not educated on the classifications of such.

Bob mentioned bushwacking and Talus and that trails may not be easily seen in the GV. being a first timer in the area we would probably need a solid trail system. I don't mind waste deep wildflowers but with no guide or local experience we don't want to lose the trail and have to backtrack.
Whats the best way to get a topo for the GV?
are there designated campsites on the loop trails you have mentioned and if so are they marked. I'd like to put coordinates in beforehand. is there any signage at all in GV?

I am going a few days early so could possibly get permits in Tetons.
