Nice little loop. Followed some water, climbed a hill and found the cleanest bathroom ever. Nice work Albany County. Two thumbs up.

We did this hike on a Thursday at the tail end of August. First know that you will have to pay a $35 vehicle fee to enter the park to reach this trail head. Second, note that the trail head at the beginning is very specific as far as the direction of the Granite Canyon Trail. I mention this because the locator dot in the All Trails app does not coincide with the trail for the first half mile or so. After that it links up and is on the trail. Many of these reviews comment on how buggy it was. We had almost no bugs at all, just a few flies at the top, perhaps because the temp has gotten down to 40° twice in the last week or so. The 1st mile or so was in the sun, through a forest of scrub brush 2 to 3 feet high. After that you enter the forest and mostly shade for the rest of the hike there are some sunny patches. The path is mostly hard packed dirt, though there are many rocky areas, so many that you will be much happier in hiking boots than in tennis shoes. There are several patches of wild raspberries along the path, though it was just a bit too early for them to be ripe. Near the top we saw two beavers at the adjacent stream clamoring over a rock. Then we realized that they were next to a dam they were building across the stream. The trail is immediately adjacent to a wonderful stream, often 30 to 40 feet wide . There are no breathtakingly spectacular views on this hike but all the views are wonderful and it is well worth your time.

This was fantastic! Started from Glen Creek trailhead in the and came out on the other side. Saw a bear early on (not a grizzly). It saw us and was not even concerned. Creek crossings were fairly high this early in the season, but not a problem. The scenery was incredible, on the western slope wild flowers were in full bloom. This was probably one of the favorite hikes I’ve taken in Yellowstone, and I’ve taken a lot of them. We hitch hiked back to glen creek after finishing. A bit hard to get a ride on the highway, but the ride we got was a good one, who took us all the way back around.

Awesome trail through meadows and forest! The dog loved it!

Saw mama moose and baby - had to turn around - snowed all day

Surprisingly fantastic trails with good snow, and the wonderful snow-covered trees kept me out of the wind. The trails were easy to follow, with many random trails leading off all over the place to go explore. I could spend the rest of the winter hiking these trails and not take the same route twice. I can’t wait to go back.

Hubby dog and I hiked most of this today. We actually cut across the lower part of Aspen Trails loop. Still got in almost 5 miles. Was able to pick up 2 geocaches along the way. The air was pretty thick with smoke. Make sure to pack plenty of water for you and your pooches. Not really much fresh water this time of year. Did not see any large wildlife, only a few squirrels. Great hike!

Nice alpine hike on top of Rendezvous Mountain. Hike up, or take the tram, to the summit of the mountain then follow the well marked trail through light patches of forest, talus fields, and a final rocky scramble back to the top of the mountain where the tram can carry you back down the 4000 feet to the resorts below. Great views over the Snake River and the Teton Range. Deer and marmot can be seen at elevation. Moose are milling about further down the slopes. This isn't a nicely manicured tourist trot despite being a stone's throw from the resort. "Moderate" assumes good fitness and acclimated. Don't bite off more than you can chew. If hiked counterclockwise, about 800 feet of that elevation is packed in to the last half mile.

Nice hike, but you have to really plan well, because the tracks are so well shown. The aren’t many and getting lost can be easy. The area is very pretty. Use good hiking shoes. I have to add that you will have to pay 43$ to take the “tram” (cable).

Beautiful trail!! We did is as part of a two-day backpacking trip. Our first day we went up Granite Canyon trail and stayed at a campground after we found the fork leading to Mt. Hunt Divide. There was lots of water access along this trail, so water wasn't an issue (as long as you have a filter). Their designated campgrounds look like they cover a huge area, but there were only 3 or 4 per camping area. The next morning, we got up and headed up to the Mt. Hunt Divide via Open Canyon Trail. the beginning of the trail was easy, but it gradually got steep and there wasn't much shade and very little water access, so top off before you go up! The wildflowers were still blooming that far up, and they were beautiful! If you take this trail, be prepared to climb over a few a logs, and wear sunscreen. There is very little shade!! But the Divide was incredible, and it was satisfying to stand at 9700 ft. At the Divide, you leave Granite Canyon, and get a fantastic view of Open Canyon. There was still some snow up there, and more flowers. There was not much water access until we got past the switchbacks. The trees and undergrowth were very thick on this end, so there was lots of shade. We rounded off our trip by taking the Valley Trail to the Granite Canyon Parking Lot. This section was fairly level, but we were tired and it seemed to take forever! It was a great two-day trip, and we had fun!! Definitely worth the uphill and the elevation. PS. The campsites are not marked on the map, so be prepared to walk and not know where you're going!! There were only three or four in each designated camping zone, and they were very spaced out. Plan accordingly. ;)

Strenuous if do the whole trail, but well worth it with varying topography and views.

The best!

The views and wildflowers were incredible! Nice easy trail along a stream.

Took the Teton Village Aerial Tram up to the top of Rendezvous which was an exciting undertaking. The views of the surrounding peaks was incredible and offered a unique view from the summit without any work. The decline through the woods was very pretty but very steep. After getting down to the first "valley" there were endless wildflowers around, taking your mind off the next steep incline. The next few miles meander through woods and wildflower fields with small feeder streams running through them, something that seemed like it was straight from a storybook. Once you get to about the 6 mile mark the bugs began with biting flies of all sizes which took away from the views. The trail also dips down into the forest which only made the flies worse. From there, the next 6 miles seemed to have little to no views of the terrain besides the occasional stream here or there. Overall the first half is entirely worth it but underwhelming for the next half.

My favorite for after dinner hikes and bike rides. 15 minutes away from Laramie, this is a fairly easy trail that is easy to get to.

Went about 3 years ago on a school field trip, and it was amazing! Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, light traffic, plenty of shade in the woods, but it's honestly hotter In the woods. on the open trail it's nice and breezy and easy to keep cool, only hiked halfway, as school policy only allowed so long of physical activity for prevention of injury but all in all a great hike! stopped in the middle for lunch, climbed up the mountain a bit to get some amazing views then turned arou d and hiked back down! definately intend on finishing the hike someday!

Great Trail for hiking, running or biking.. Easy access to TH, with a restroom at the Trail Head (TH). Would be a great hike for family's. It has some moderate elevation change, but nothing to drastic. I usually park at the ready area and hike to the TH (.5 miles)... Happy Trails

We hiked a portion of this trail today. Very pretty, not too strenuous, meadows and forest and several streams - secluded, very few other hikers. We didn't encounter any bear or moose but did see fresh bear scat.

It's a decent hike but Cascade Canyon is much better in my opinion. Definitely bring bear mace and a whistle. On our way back we came across a black bear and cub foraging for berries. My husband started blowing his whistle and the bears quickly scampered away. There is definitely wild life here!! Overall the elevation climb was spread out nicely and we didn't feel it that much.

Honestly, if you are going to do a canyon hike and you only have one big hike you can do, I'd recommend Cascade Canyon. It is a pretty piney trail with cool views and the river is nice but what is worth the experience is the meadows of wildflowers up in the middle for area, and in route to Marion Lake (which were gorgeous bonuses of being up in this terrain)

My husband and I did this trail last week. Almost got to the end before we could no longer find the trail due to the snow. Nice trail. Long and not too steep. Great views of the river and multiple waterfalls. We did not see anyone else the whole time.

Certainly not the easiest hike in the park but certainly way up there on the scenery chart. Camp as close to the BMA as possible since it is a long hike to the next campsite.

Great trail with many optional side trails up hill. One of the best for fall foliage.

Fun to ride the gondola to the top and hike all around and even back down the mountain. Lots to see and do, with great views!!

This hike is rated as moderate ... Thought it was moderate to strenuous. Something for everyone on this hike ... Vertical, wild flowers, meadows etc. It was fun and a great hike for the Teton village area.

Great out and back hike from the Granite Canyon parking area. We started early and glad we did. Nice gradual elevation gain and shaded but many open areas. According to Alltrails app we about 12.5 miles. When we arrived back at the trail head it was 88 degrees. Glad the sun was at our backs.
