It's a perfect hike, but make sure you are prepared. Bring water. You have to be in decent shape.

Other reviews capture this quintiessential Colorado hike. Majestic views, turquoise lake, rewarding hike.

It was a easy fan trail, and incredible view all around.

July 2018 - The trail is in two parts, there is the paved trail along the bottom caynon next to Provo River. Well maintained as part of the Provo river trail, many parking lots, and food trucks. The trail to go up the to the mid-point of the falls is pretty skech in places. Very narrow in many parts, and loose shale rock everywhere. There are a few places where the the trail has clearly been wiped out by rock slides and is a little puckering for the less then fleet of footed. There is also another option to get to the mid-point, climb the falls themselves, lots of loose shale rock, water, and steep.

If you’re looking for a hike with the best view of grand Teton and her lakes then I recommend delta lake over this hike. Me and my girlfriend set out on lupine meadows (the name of the trail head for surprise, Amp, delta, and garnet), but due to it being unmarked, proceeded to surprise and amphitheater instead which are great views! However on the way down we decided to search for the delta trail, and I’m glad we did!
The view at delta was the best by far And is well worth the pretty tough hike up. However it is unmarked and not easy to find unless you know where it is. So this is how is how you find it.

1. follow the signs towards amp. and surprise lakes

2. Once you hit the sign that tells you surprise and amp. are 1.5 and 1.8 miles away you’ll go up the trail until you hit a left turn to continue up the switchbacks of the main trail. At this turn look for a smaller dirt trail to the right that goes off the main trail, this is it!

3. Most of the trail is fairly steep and can be difficult, but if you’re in decent shape you should be fine. There is a dirt trail through most of it, including through the boulder fields, but there is also rock piles in the boulder fields pointing the way, make sure to bring a swim suit!

Hiked this in August with a healing ankle sprain. Fairly easy with beautiful views. Highly recommended.

Great hike! The views were amazing but the hike was tough! The path can be very rocky at times. Make sure you have sturdy shoes and plenty of water. Go to the overlook first and then down to the falls.

Absolutely amazing view at the end of the trail.

fun hike! we only made it as far as lower blue lake due to some issues with the altitude, but it was gorgeous nonetheless! the trail opens up to some beautiful meadows along the way and once you hit a space suitable for camping you have arrived at lower blue lake. would love to go back and make this a two day trip. the road out there is easy to maneuver and it definitely gets crowded pretty early. highly suggest this hike!

Great hike!

Very easy and it is very interesting. Cool views and amazing history.

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!

Good walk.

Nice walk. Beautiful views.

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

Beautiful, loved having the mountains surrounding!

the two miles to the end are longer than it'd seem. took about 2 hours, but beautiful trail. the beginning has the best views

I loved this hike!! It was great for me and my boys!! It was a good length and a mix of flat and a little steep!

Magic!

What a hike. It is hard but worth it. The divide is awesome. A little sketch at times.

Guided tour. Amazing place :-)

I did this hike last Friday (8/10) with two of my best friends and it was absolutely incredible!

We started our trek around 11:30 am and completed it around 4:30 pm. We did spend close to 30 minutes having lunch down by the creek, and probably could have cut off an additional 30 min. if we weren't caught behind some slow-moving "tourists" upon our return to the trailhead.

There are two ways to reach the trail, one of which being taking the ferry across Jenny Lake, which we did, but will run you $15 per person for a round-trip ticket. It runs approximately every 15 minutes. You can also take the 2-mile trail around the perimeter of the lake to reach the trailhead, which we decided against because of the longevity of our hike.

Having said that, after you get to the actual trail for this trek, it is pretty free of families and novice hikers. Most of the elevation gain for this particular hike is in the first mile to mile and a half. And once you reach the end of that gain, the valley opens up and you are surrounded by towering peaks on each side, which is pretty spectacular.

Shortly after the trail opened up we saw a black bear rummaging around in the creek about 20 yards away from where we saw a female moose sunbathing that certainly made our day.

This is a decently challenging hike, primarily because of the 9-miles round-trip and 1,000-feet of elevation gain. However, it is absolutely worth every step, and if I were to return I would make a backpacking adventure out of our next journey, as this trail leads to many other amazing trais when it forks at the end!

Note: The trek outlined in the trail map is currently closed and you will need to take the alternate route to the trail. When you get off the boat dock just head to your right and you will run into the sign for the trailhead on your left, which is about 100 yards down the trail that loops around Jenny Lake.

Hiked on 8/8/2018; Inspiration Point and Hidden Falls were closed due to rockfall threat, but hikers could still access the trail into the valley using the horse route. For us, this trail was a beautiful introduction to the Grand Teton park. We took the Jenny Lake ferry to reach the trailhead on the western side of the lake; just around the first bend of the trail, we found a group of hikers and a ranger excitedly viewing a young black bear foraging in the bushes about 25 yards away (and thankfully moving away from us). Farther up the path, a family taught us how to identify the huckleberries that were growing plentifully by the trail; they were delicious! We saw a moose adult and child drinking and wading in pools in the valley (about 30 yards from the trail). We spotted pika in the boulder fields and plenty of chipmunks and squirrels throughout the hike. This trail offers a delightfully varied landscape, beautiful flowers, and plenty of wildlife to enjoy!

Long story short, my girlfriend wanted to go on a hike and I didn’t want to go on a hike, so we compromised and went on a hike. The first 1.2 miles are steep but over quickly, we made it to the trail marker saying that the fork was 3.3 miles and it was mostly a walk from there. There were three or four water falls on the mountain to the right when you could see through the woods. I got tired about 4 miles in and she lied to me and said there was a vendor selling Gatorade at the end. There was no Gatorade and I did a 9 mile hike.

Great variety of terrain. Easy up and down for moderately fit. Poles and two waters suggested.

Top 3 best hikes I’ve done! We took a shuttle boat to the trail head. The first mile or so is all uphill and heavily trafficked but once you make it to the canyon it’s a steady hike with amazing views of waterfalls, cascades and the mountain side! We saw a grizzly bear about 30 yards munching on some berries and two moose in the marsh!

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.

Fantastic trail. If you don't want to pay for the ferry, you can park at String Lake and hike just 1.7 miles to the trailhead, saving 2.2 miles vs the hike from the Jenny Lake trailhead. once you complete the initial switchbacks which are somewhat strenuous, the remainder of the trail is a gradual climb up the canyon. Even if you can't complete the full trail, don't stop at the trail junction at the top of the switchbacks. One further mile into the canyon opens up views and vistas you don't want to miss. I had the luck to see two moose across the creek and encounter zero bears. Do being bear spray and hike in a group.

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

The best views in Island in the Sky, along with the White Rim overlook, and a very easy trail. Would definitely recommend.
