Very pretty trail. Not the prettiest hike in this area though. But the Wind Cave is phenomenal! The photos here don't provide it justice. Amazingly tall entrance. Lots of room inside to climb around and explore. Be sure to bring headlamps to allow unhindered exploring. I'm not sure why this trail is rated as difficult. My 4 year old niece managed the hike up all on her own.

Our yearly trek! Waterfall canyon is also definitely worth the extra push. If you're planning to make it an overnighter the far side of the upper lake is the prime territory. Been up here 4 years running and have always seen wildlife. Last time a moose stumbled upon us and gave us all a good jump. I don't know who was more surprised us or her.

this is definitely a hike that is accessible in the winter as long as it's not crazy snowy. The trail was easy to follow and trafficked.

Off the beaten path, but way better than any waterfall you’ll see on an easy access trail in the park.

Highly trafficked, but the lake is nice and good for a swim.

Great hike, say a lot of wildlife, moose, deer, elk. Fishing wasn't to great, but what can you expect since it's almost November.

this is one of my favorite hikes. Theres stunning views even just a mile or two in. My family hikes here every year. You can go inside the windcave, but be cautious, there are currents inside the cave where you can't tell how deep they are, make sure you stay out of the water as much as you can, and take a reliable headlamp.

The road to the parking lot at the top is very rough. Four-wheel drive is highly recommended. There is snow now, so i would suggest parking at the bottom and hiking the rest. Its challenging but its worth it!

Great hike! Plenty of good views and not too difficult. We didn’t see any, but watch for bears and moose as they are active in the area!

Great hike with stunning views. Highly recommended

Just did this oct 14. got within 100m from the top, waist deep snow and after hours of making fresh tracks we called it! Past the junction there was no way to find a trail. With it wind chill we think it was about zero degrees. If you're going to go later this season I suggest gaiters and snowshoes!

Absolutely a unique hike and well worth the effort to get to the top. Views are unparalleled.

A great backpacking trail with nice lake views at the top. Be sure to take a water filter if you are planning to camp at the top.

We thought this trail was a great hike! It was a bit cool, hiking in snow the last 1/2 mile, but beautiful!

Very pretty, we had the whole trail to ourselves. Lots of squirrels and chickens to amuse my dog. Road is pretty washed out. My car is 4 wheel drive and struggled through the mud in a couple places. Nothing a lil sheer masculinity and a tight wheel grip couldn't get us through.

So gorgeous!!!! Loved the hike!

It was around 5 miles up face trail, and 7 miles down huckleberry. We enjoyed seeing different views on each trail.

It is beautiful in the fall season. We started at 8:30am on Saturday morning, and finished at 12:30pm, spending about half an hour around the cave area. Not so many people in the morning, but encountered quite many groups on our way back.

Have been down this trail many times in my life. love the view from look out point.

Coming from the east coast, this was one of the most spectacular views we have ever seen. Face up, Huckleberry down is the way to go. When you enter the parking lot, the first trailhead is for Huckleberry. Walk a few hundred feet towards South Teton trailhead to get to the trailhead for Face, right next to the outhouse. Bring extra layers for the top, it can get very windy.

One of our absolute favorite hikes!! It’s long, but not a hard hike with lots of beautiful views!

I have been wanting to hike this for a few years now. It was well worth it. Great view of the Tetons.

Most incredible hike I’ve been on. It has everything. We went in July and there was still snow on part of the trail so missed some switch backs on a steep part but still made it. I got altitude sickness around 9-10k feet but didn’t figure that out until we got back down to 8k. Came across a family of moose and we elected to go back through the valley, same way we went up. We lost the trail a few times due to the snow. Take plenty of water and give yourself time to acclimate to the altitude if possible. I was useless toward the top. Great close up view of Grand Tetons on the table top. Beavers seemed to be following us... maybe some people feed them. Start early, take bear spray, food and water and a good app like this one.

This was a fun Saturday day activity for our camp trip. Our extended family hiked this in about 3 hours . We had kids ranging from 5 yrs - 14 Years, plus a 4 month old and 2 year old in back packs. On the Flag Ranch road, look for the sign that says “cascade creek” for the trail head. The entire trail is gorgeous. The end of the trail is not a very good view. The best view is from a rock cliff a little bit back from the end of the trail.

My 11 yr old son and I hiked and loved it. The trail is beautiful the whole way up because the leaves are changing. The cave is very cold, bring a good jacket. Great hike, but definitely longer than listed here. I clocked it on my phone at just under 9 miles.

Excellant hike, beautiful foliage in the fall all the way up. The cave at the top is worth exploring, flashlight needed. Watch your footing, as ice is already forming along the stream bed.

beautiful but hard to access

Great view!!! It’s a difficult hike if you choose to do face up and down. Made it in 5.5 hours round trip but we hike a lot and are young. I recommend not going down face, it is painful and super steep, take huckleberry down!

Upper Lake was great.Leg burner for the last quarter mile. Don't look for campsites by the lake but pick your birds nest north of the lake by abandoned outhouse. Plenty of knobs to choose from.

We got all the way to the cave with our 3 year old and 1 year old. The wildflowers in the meadow at the top were unreal. It was a tough hike, but so worth it! The cave was so neat!
