Very beautiful lake on top. Saw small bear early in AM when we got to the lake. Early AM the wildlife is very abundant.

Great Winter Hike!!
We started ~1mile below the trailhead due to the seasonal closure. We took the trail over to the historic camp, then we went up to the lake overlook and turned it from there. Gorgeous views and very easy terrain. Since it was winter, we left the trail a number of times to explore the area.
If you're a backcountry skier, this is an amazing spot. Climb would only take a couple hours and the lines are spectacular.

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

Beautiful waterfall!

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.

Great trail! I hiked the trail in early June and saw mother bear and her cubs as well as a bull moose.

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.

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

Great hike with breathtaking views. Saw lots of chipmunks but no bears! Had bear spray just in case. My husband and I really enjoyed this hike.

Awesome scenery

Great longer hike around the lake. We started near the jenny lake overlook and went to the right (looking at the lake). We were the only people in the trail until the intersection trailhead. Continued into hidden falls as a nice side trip before finishing the loop. Went past moose pond, did not see any moose or wildlife. It was snowing dueing our hike so the view of the mountains wasnt good, however the snow was pretty.

very well maintained trail with a lot of spectacular scenery to photograph.

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.

Very beautiful around the lake!

We did this the week of the total solar eclipse and caught a glimpse of a moose.

Easy trail- we hiked early this morning when it was sprinkling. No moose, no bears and only met other hikers when we were leaving. Enjoyed the quiet. Later saw 5 moose off Moose-Wilson road and hwy 22 in Jackson. LOL.

We hiked about a half mile to the north and saw two female moose just hanging out. One walked into the river then ate leaves. They were there for a while despite the on and off rain sprinkles. This was around 3pm today 10-2-18

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

Really pretty. Did the trail with wife and three kids. First part, to Taggart Lake, was lead by a park ranger, which was awesome. Great variety of scenery along the trail, with fantastic views of Grand Teton throughout.

Enjoyable hike completed over 2 early mornings. First from east boat station to west side of lake, hidden falls and lower inspiration point. We took boat back to east side($9ea. 10 min ride). Afternoon spent on moose pond loop accessible from main trail. Next morning hiked from east boat station over north route to west boat dock. Saw many deer. Great views of Jenny lake and feed waters from string lake at the northern panhandle. The trail detours here from lake shore to foot bridge across upper panhandle (Portasans at nearby parking lot). Again reached hidden falls trail head and took boat back to east shore. Wife did not duck low enough under fallen pine blocking trail resulting in bloody scalp wound. Wasn’t clear about length or difficulty of entire lake trail in one hike but in hindsight it is doable for a couple of sixty somethings taking their time over mix of flat/ rocky/ hilly terrain. Watch out for fallen trees ha.

Great early fall day. This trail is beautiful and very accessible as well. We did the full seven mile loop around the lake without straining. The 700 foot elevation change is mostly in the first mile or so. The rest was just a great walk in the woods. Saw what we believe was a mink, a ptarmigan and even a bear. Fantastic trail!

Pretty trail...rated Moderate but an easy moderate

Very confusing if you opt for the right hand fork labeled "observation " (?) or lookout. We didn't find the main trail after that until wandering around in mucky marsh around Swan Lake, and found a marker by accident. Otherwise, very flat and easy, as well as boring, trail.
