By far my favorite hike I’ve ever done! I’ve done it twice (both times in July) once there was heavy snow still at the peak due to heavy snowfall. If you’re in the Jackson hole/ Moose Wyoming area this is a must!
Amphitheater is the perfect place for a lunch time break and a hammock nap before heading back down the mountain!

My first solo hike! Only wildlife I saw was a few chipmunks. Finished the loop in 2.5 hours, so I would rate this trail as easy, not moderate.

amazing trail, moderately trafficked but not too bad, the landscape and veiws/forests are beautiful, no complaints!

Great hike to the falls. If you want to go further, it's nice, too. Fairly steep after the falls, but not hard.

We hiked this trail August 16th. We enjoyed it but we would rate it as Easy. We had to add side trails up Death Canyon to get our heart rate up.

Nice little trail. wildflowers are out. The jumping rock is super fun! The water was extremely clear.

This was a good hike! Not too steep not too difficult! Gorgeous views and we saw a moose right next to the trail.

Did this hike today. My 4th time!!! It’s as beautiful as ever. Well worth the effort it takes to get there. I would suggest you go very early.

Well maintained trail with a beautiful view of the Grand Teton Mountain over Taggert Lake. Hiked Aug 2018 with the Denton’s.

Beautiful view, but too difficult for me to hike there.

Very nice hike. The views are incredible. And to have the stream right along the trail was awesome! Will definitely do this hike again

I have hiked this trail three separate times. The beautiful aspens, view of the lake and the Tetons make for a tranquil hike. Very heavily trafficked up until the lake, then moderately trafficked continuing on the loop. We went a few days ago and ran into a black bear. We made noise and it ran into the woods. Nice easy hike.

good short hike and very nice falls.

beautiful hike all the way through and the prize at the end the waterfall perfect.

Lots of nice trails to the lake. Went swimming when we arrived and it was amazing. Love the jumping rock!

We hiked this trail in about 2.25 hours. Nice and steady incline of close to 3000 feet. Will work your lungs! At Amphitheatre Lake we had lunch then spent the next hour climbing the narrow trails and boulders that started at the lake and went further up. SUPER technical. Not recommended unless you're a skilled hiker. We made it to a glacier and turned around. The views up there were unbelievable.

Amphitheater Lake is amazing! Many people went swimming in the cold water. Well maintained trail.

Hiking is beautiful and moderate. Heard and saw lots of kids wading in the lake Water is pure and clear.

I agree with Chris, this is more of a moderate trail. By the end my friend and I were very sore. The pain was well worth seeing the falls. Take lots of water!

A great morning hike for my son and I. Hit the trail just before 8 and were done well before 10. Great photo spots for family. Morning reflection of Tetons off lake were incredible. Didn’t see any wildlife other than pika.

Murderous, but worth it. Super gorgeous trail, did this instead of Delta lake at the advice of a park ranger, apparently there’s been 3 search and rescues because of people getting hurt/lost on that trail. Very quiet, peaceful. Make sure you dip your feet in the glacial water!

This was a great trail with a beautiful lake. The only reason I rated it 3 rather than 4 is because I prefer trails with fewer people and this one is HEAVILY trafficked. Going clockwise be prepared for a fairly steep climb up on the backside of the mountain. My 7 year old got a little tired.

Great trail! Started at 8:30 am on a Tuesday in August. Parking was not a problem. Great views throughout the hike. Go in the morning to see the Tetons reflecting in the lake.

Did this hike my first day in GTNP. Beautiful lakes

fun destination hike with a great payoff. falls were amazing. most of the trail is fairly ez, but there are a couple of steep sections.
took the whole family, my 9 year old struggled just a bit.
took 2 hours.
GPS had it at 4.3 miles.

Great trail. It's well covered and stays pretty cool. The slightly steeper parts are well staggered, good exercise but not too difficult. Very beautiful location.

Short. Easy with kids. Beautiful.

Cool place! Went yesterday. Awesome trails! The jumping rock is great.

Awesome hike! Unreal place when you get to the top. One of the best day hikes I have done! Hard, but not grueling at all. All different types of ages capable of doing this trail. Mama Black bear and her cubs were 5 yards from me on the trail eating berries. 18 switchbacks, exposed (sunblock), nice views of the lakes!
