Awesome hike. Huckleberries were one of the main highlights.

Starts out pretty steep but wide enough and not too hard to walk up. Once you get to the creek it’s a nice spot to stop and wet down your arms and neck to cool off in the summer. From that point on it is very mellow. Gets a little narrow in some spots with vegetation encroaching on the trail but for the most part the trees and foliage provide a nice amount of shade. I only made it about 5 miles in before turning around to catch the shuttle back. Several great canyon clearings and heading the roar of the cascades as you approach the louder sections is a great motivator.

I could imagine it being a pain to come back down the steep part if it is crowded with people coming up from the shuttle. As long as you track your progress and keep time it seemed nice to go out later in the day and catch one of the shuttles going back around 6pm (last one was at 7pm) but don’t cut it too close unless you’re prepared to hike a couple hours back to the visitor center without taking the boat.

Took my wife and two boys (7+9) up the cascade canyon trail to the big waterfall- seemed like about 4 miles in one way. Took the Jenny lake ferry - $45 for 2 adults/2 kids, round trip. 10 min boat trip, every 15 min or so. Holds 40 people. You can skip the ferry, but 2.5 mi hike. Last ferry leaves 7pm. The hiking took about 5 hrs round trip, lots of breaks and lunch. Weather sunny, low 80’s. Mosquitoes in the shaded areas, but not bad. The first mile is tough uphill climb, but levels off after that. Used about 6 quarts of water/drink w 4 of us. The creek the trail follows is absolutely gorgeous! You can put your feet in it roughly halfway up the trail. Boys were very tired at the end. Jenny lake is beautiful against the mountains. There is a small boat ramp to the left of the main ramp, about 1/4 mike hike away where you can park also.

nice drive and not busy.. the cone geyser was a first!

This was a moderate hike with great views of he Grand Tetons. Great for a family or couple hiking. Multiple trail runners on this hike. Start early to avoid the heat.

Did this trail a couple weeks ago! Was my first trail I had ever done at Grand Teton and I'll tell you this is gorgeous. Do yourself a favor and hike the full length of the trail to the sign at the end! But keep in mind that the trail is long. I started at the string lake trail head so this trail was around 12 miles round trip. The beginning is a little tough. A small speed bump if you will. But once you get up into the canyon your crushing it for days man. It's a cruise the sights are awesome aqua blue river with the teton range on both sides of you. One of my favorite hikes to date! If you are going to Grand Teton NP make this your top on your to do list!!!

It was a good little hike, pretty easy but the water felt awesome after a hot day! I don't get why people say the water is cold, they have never felt Maine ocean before! But to sum it up, expansive views of the Grand Teton and Middle Teton. Just be aware of wildlife on trail came pretty close to a moose that was territorial, this was an awesome day in the park. Grand Teton NP never disappoints!

Didn’t do nearly all of this one. Just a mile in to the small waterfall. Challenging climb up though from the Jenny lake trail.

Only go to do about 4 miles of the trail since the rest was closed off. Very easy with some good views of the mountains and lake.

This was my favorite day hike! We went in early June and saw a black bear with her 2 cubs, 2 Moose, these amazing birds at the Lilly pond and a marmot family! Pretty easy and spectacular scenery. I didn’t want it to end!

So beautiful! We took a couple of detours to see waterfalls. Lovely walk around the lake.

Beautiful! We hiked all the way around the lake and then included this quick little detour. So glad we did!

Awesome trail

Done this hike 3 times already and it never fails to take my breath away. Stunning from the boat ride across Jenny Lake to Inspiration Point to the marshes surrounding Cascade Creek. Every time we have seen at least one moose, the most recent time it was a bull that stepped out onto the trail ahead of us and walked along it for a while, very cool but also a little scary. Incredible panoramic views no matter what part of the trail you're on. By far my favorite hike in the park!

It was fun there was a bear at the creek but we scared him off

Awesome trail! A little rough uphill at the beginning. In all its a moderate hike not bad at all. My 7 and 10 y.o. were able to complete with no problems. 5-10 minute hike after the cascade is some swimming holes. If you are brave take a dip but it’s freezing.

Did the trail on the 7th of July so it was pretty busy but still quite enjoyable. Our group did the entire loop in just under 5 hours including stops. We chose to get the climb done first so we headed clockwise around the lake from the Visitors Center. Wish I had bought swimwear to take a dip after we finished.

Take your swimmers for the brave! We loved it. Great, easy loop with refreshing dip at the lake in the middle. Not for the fair hearted. The dip that is, the walk is perfect for kids 9 and 7.

We had a great time, walked there and got ferry back as kids were fading from heat at that point. Falls are beautiful.

Awesome hike with incredible views the entire time. I would however rank this hike as easy to moderate. The first section of the hike is a bit uphill but it flattens out shortly after the initial elevation gain. Keep your eyes open for wildlife!

This is by far one of my most favorite hikes that I've ever done. Did this on June 30th and the abundance of wildflowers, wildlife, cascades, waterfalls, and different sceneries were utterly breathtaking.

We took the shuttle across. Hiked to hidden falls then back to the old horse trail (the trail you have to use to hike cascade canyon this summer due to construction at inspiration point.), then had a grand 'ol time! We saw one pretty big black bear that was no more than 20 feet from the actual trail, a HUGE bull moose hanging out at the fork leading into solitude lake, and a ton of marmots, pikas and other adorable critters. We clocked a little over 13 miles from just hiking from hidden falls back down to the old horse trail and all the way to the fork. We ended up hiking the extra 2.5 miles back to the Jenny Lake parking lot instead of getting a round trip on the shuttle. Please do yourself a favor and do this hike if you plan on visiting the Grand Tetons.

(This hike is moderate if you're used to inclines. It also is not that heavily trafficked. The crowds thin out after the first mile-mile and a half. Go early and you'll have it to yourself!)

Fun little trail with a lot of friendly people. Well worth the time spent with the family in a really beautiful place.

Great hike. Hiked it counter-clockwise for best views. However, we saw steaming piles of grizzly poop, two large and two smaller. If you look at this thread, one month ago, one grizzly mom and two cubs were seen. Then they closed the trail on the right side a week ago. I can see why. You are definitely entering the home of a grizzly family, so be careful. Carry bear spray. The cubs might now be old enough to be bold and run down to the lake without mama, and you could be caught in the middle. We saw lots of little kids on the hike.

Not a difficult trail to hike or navigate, unsure why this is graded so steeply. Great views, always worth it to head up to Solitude.

This trail is definitely not hard, it should be marked between easy and moderate. The first mile of the trail you are uphill the whole time and that’s the hardest part once that is over you level off for the rest of the trail and is very easy. Pretty crowded, and would say is pretty overrated, if you finish this hike at the top go to solitude Lake you will be much more impressed and satisfied.

This hike is a must do!!! We took the shuttle across Jenny Lake and hiked to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point first. Unfortunately the trail was partially closed so we weren’t able to connect directly to the trail to Cascade Canyon, and this added a bit of mileage to our day since we had to go all the way back to where the ferry dropped us off to begin. The first part of the Cascade Canyon trail is HARD! We had to stop frequently to catch our breath. Once we got past the forest section, it was pretty easy going. We saw two moose close to the end of the trail! I would definitely hike this trail again!

A lot of snow and stream crossings but we made the whole loop. 11 hrs. and 17 miles.
Having the All Trails Pro with the down loaded map made it a whole lot easier to stay on the trail through the snow. I don't think we would have made it without it. The streams was the hardest part some were 2.5 ft deep, swift and cold to say the least. Very fun and
challenging hike.

Very easy trail with the beautiful views of the lake. We completed it for 1.5 hours, but stayed lots of times to take photos.

Great trail. Ferried across Jenny Lake first and started the 9 mike round trip hike to the Cascade Canyon fork. About a mile of incline at first but smoothed out after that. Amazing views of the canyon. I was lucky enough to catch a moose and her calf feeding on this hike.

Beautiful hike. We walked around Jenny Lake as well instead of taking the boat shuttle for a ~14 mile hike. Next time, if snow is melted/crampons are not required, we would want to do Paintbrush Divide as well.
