I hike this trail year round and absolutely love it. Snowshoeing is the best on this trail and the views are gorgeous. I usually see wildlife so be prepared, this trail is a must do

We did not make it all the way but the views were incredible in the canyon!

Beautiful waterfall!

Amazing views. Steep start then a flat, visually stunning hike. This was an all-star hike.

Great trail! I hiked it in early June and the traffic was already fairly heavy but the views are worth it. If you slip the fairy ride and take the trail around the lake you will be much more likely to encounter bear and moose as I did as the moose ponds trail is connected to this trail.

Hiked this trail with my girlfriend on Sept 7th. I am 64 yrs young, but live at sea level (St. Pete,FL)
the first 3-4 miles not so bad, but once you leave the maintained trail it gets much tougher.
That combined with the lack of oxygen made me consider quitting several times. Luckily for me,
my girlfriend is younger and in better hiking shape, so I toughed it out. It was the best pay-off to a hike
that I have ever experienced. The view was spectacular. The sun on the lake and the reflection of the sky made it seem that you were in a painting. As with many places we have been, none of the pictures, as beautiful as they are, can quite hold up to being there. It was very hard to leave.

did the hike 4th of july weekend. amazing hike!! worth the switchbacks and boulder field scramble. the view at the top was amazing. the lake was so cool! take plenty of water! we all depleted our water on the way up and refilled with our filters at the lake. we arrived early but not early enough and had to park further out. about 10 miles up and back to the car. we did see a mom and cub on our way up. they wandered off into the field away from us so definitely bring bear spray, never know!

I don't usually review trails, but this one is pretty great! We went a little later, so it wasn't as busy. But we got to a point in the trail where a moose and her baby were on the trail. We had to wander off the trail but it was an awesome experience. The scenery is also beautiful. It's 4 miles but it's very casual.

Beautiful. May take longer than you think to complete the hike. Route-finding can be difficult in the boulder section and may not be appropriate for children, older folks, or disabled. A stunning annual run for us with access to the Middle/Grand saddle.

Was exactly like the descriptions said. We started out around 09:00 and took 5 hours to get to top. I’m very out of shape now days and refused not to give up until we made it. My wife waited on me lots going up but kept me motivated. The views going up and at the top are good enough motivation.

We hiked this trail in order to summit Disappointment Peak. Before beginning the last leg of our summit, I took a refreshing (and frigid) swim in Amphitheater Lake. I believe we counted 18 switchbacks. Both lakes were breathtaking!

Nice hike- we did it clockwise and enjoyed great views the whole time.

phenomenal hike with great views. This hike leans towards the more difficult side. It took us around 5 and a half hours for the entire trip.
Plan on taking a lot of water or at least water filters to restock on water at the lake itself.

Very icy conditions with considerable snowfall covering the large boulders. Mentally and physically challenging! Make it to the top and you’ll be greeted with a spectacular view.

After doing shorter hikes in Yellowstone we decided to push ourselves to do something longer than 2 miles. So glad we did. Beautiful views of the lake and the mountains.

Incredible payoff at the end. Easily one of my top 3 hikes ever.

First time hiking in US national park, we are from Hong Kong and in a group of 4. A bit worried at first Becoz it is a bear zone area and we bought a can of bear spray. The park ranger/ guide at Jenny lake was very helpful showing us how to use it and even changed ours (we lost safety lock) with another can for us. It was a very good hike except we had to catch our breath a lot as we live at coastline, altitude is an issue but not a big one - just hike slowly

But the view is worth it. Ranger suggested us doing cascade trail first then we did hidden fall and lower inspiration point (since we couldn’t pass through hidden fall to cascade trail).

It was end of Sep, we took the 1st ferry at 10am then started hiking at 10.30am. We didn’t finish the whole trail, we just walked 1/4 and walked back and went to hidden fall and lower inspiration. I guess total we walked 7km. We just took our time and enjoyed taking the picture and the view.
Able to see a few mooses at Cascade Trail, but didn’t bump into any bear. We saw bear footprint (not 100% sure but it looked v much it was) when we hike up the cascade trail - we were the 1st group on that day. Lucky 4-6 of other hikers followed the same route as we got off the boat

We didn’t drink a lot of water as weather is very cool when we hiked, some sunshine but I still find it cold
To me it is not very hard - just hiked slowly. It is a bit steep at first but after that there is wide open nice view

Started at lake Taggart. Hiked this the first day of our Tetons and Yellowstone trip. I live in Houston so would have been a good idea to do a warm hike. The hike felt murderous. The altitude really got me. Great views and a nice challenging hike though. Will definitely do it again, this time after a warm up hike

Skipped the boat and hiked around Jenny lake, down to the boat dock (the trail through inspiration point was closed) then hiked up to hidden point and into the canyon. Great views and a fairly easy hike once you get into the canyon. Saw moose and supposedly missed a mama grizzly and two cubs ( good and bad.) by like a minute. Hiked to the trails fork, had lunch and turned around. I had a nasty blister so it took me longer than my typical hiking speed. Saw quite a few trail runners on the trail. Would do this hike again and try add lake solitude.

Traveled on 10/12/18. Trails were pretty moderate until the boulder fields. Boulders were covered with several inches of snow which made it even more challenging. Cairns were extremely helpful in guiding. We were the first to travel this morning, so we actually followed a wolf’s footprints all the way to the top. Views were incredible, would love to try again when the lake is not frozen.

Jenny Lake ferry was not running for the season so yo save over two miles by coming in from String Lake. I would rate this a moderate hike. The highlight of this beautiful hike was a peaceful encounter with a huge moose and his lady friend. A number of hikers around and they knew were there but kept on eating

Just awesome. Start this hike from the String Lake trailhead (parking area) which technically ads another mile or so, because you have to go around the Jenny Lake loop to get to the Cascade Canyon trailhead.

From the parking area, go left. You’ll see an information station on your left & a bridge on your right. Cross the bridge and stay left at the fork (going right at the fork will start the String Lake loop). You’ll see the gorgeous views of Jenny lake on your left, and eventually come to the Cascade Cayon trailhead, among the others like Hidden Falls. Go right, and the trail begins. Awesome the whole way.

My wife and I are beginners, and we got to the end of this trail in 3h 20m with excessive stopping for pictures. Made it back to parking area in about 2 hours booking it to beat the sunset. No bears, but we saw 4 moose!

One of the best hikes i've ever done, extremely tough but SO worth the effort!

Our group did this hike on 10-5-18 right after an early snowfall. The first half of the trail was easy going, but as we approached the first large tree fall and entered the boulder fields, the ground became very muddy. While it was a little slow going through the boulders, the most difficult part was climbing the muddy trail at the end toward the lake. I highly recommend yak tracks and trekking poles to navigate this section if hiking in similar conditions. I’m not sure I’d attempt this hike with any more snowfall unless footwear is designed for the ice, mud, and/or snow. With that said, the lake was absolutely glorious and breathtaking. It was worth every step up and back to see it. It’s cold at the top, so bring layers to allow an enjoyable stay.

Took 2 hours to the lake edge, about the same going down. Hardest part was navigating the rock / boulder fields, but, after reading several other more detailed posts from AllTrails, it was not bad. The rock piles left by other hikers was most helpful!

We managed to do this trail in 4 hours between rain showers. The canyon is wonderful and great fall colors. No sign of bears but it is prime territory’s I tale precautions

Hike was tough, especially the steep bolder field to get to the lake. The view of the lake/tetons was worth it but definitely difficult.

Really enjoyed this short relatively flat hike after the previous days 18miler RT to Static Divide. great views and nice folk on the trail. cant fo wrong with this one at all
