Best mountain biking you can find in FL. Variety of single tracks for any skill levels all the way to double Black trails.

At the trailhead we saw 3 Black bears. Went on this hike in late June 28th, didn’t believe everyone when they said it was a hard hike- but it was definitely hard going up. My favorite hike I’ve ever done though, jumped in the 44 degree water, and on the way back down ran into 5 black bears (including a bear cub scaling up the tree). Make sure you have bear spray.

Loved this hike! I agree that this is a moderate trail, but it is a little difficult at points. If you've already done alot of hiking in the Tetons, then this is moderate....if you haven't, than this may be difficult. Having the Alltrails map with us was very helpful as we somehow got off the trail on our way back. We really enjoyed every moment of this hike

This was one of the most magical hikes I’ve ever done! Park in Lupine Meadows then follow the trail for Amphitheater and Surprise Lakes. Follow this up steady switchbacks blanketed in multicolored wildflowers. It’s a steady ascent and as you take breaks along the way you get amazing views of Bradley and Taggart Lakes with Jackson Hole and meadows in the distance. Stay right/straight after 3 miles when you get to the junction of Garnet Canyon and Surprise/Amphitheater Lakes. The unmaintained trail will begin in the elbow after the first switchback past the Garnet Canyon junction. Here’s where the real fun starts. You will see a small dirt path, sometimes with fallen trees in the way but follow this until you get to the first boulder field. Stay to the left as you approach the first boulder field and look for cairns to mark the trail. The trail evens out a bit before you meet the second, more difficult, boulder field. Take it slow and steady, being sure of your footing and looking for cairns to help show you the way. Be prepared for some scrambling and bring lots of water. Finally, when you almost feel like giving up, you’ll reach the elusive Delta Lake with the majestic Grand Teton at its base. Enjoy a dip in the frigid glacial lake after a long hike and refuel before making the trek down. The way down was harder for me as it’s easy to slide in the loose dirt or to lose the trail through the field. Again, slow and steady and you’ll do fine. We went to the visitors center to ask the rangers for advice and they couldn’t give us any. We’re grateful for AllTrails, hikers blogs, and talking to locals to help us find this hidden gem! It’s definitely not easy but I promise it’s worth it!

Great hike. Very thankful for the AllTrails app. We lost the trail for a short time on our return trip. Would highly recommend downloading the map so you can know your local as it relates to where the trail is. The last portion up the lake is tough but well worth it when you see the view at the lake.

Incredible

Incredible views, definitely worth the challenge. The hike is miss-rated on all trails and should be rated hard. Bring lots of water and solid hiking shoes. Like the reviews say below me, the trail is not well marked, but manageable. Stay to the left of both bolder fields on the way up. The lake is unbelievable though and I'd highly recommend the trail.

Hurricane Irma took its toll. The Flagler bridge is closed and the canopy is not quite what it was. The footing is much sandier. But then nature is what it is and being out in it is always a joy.

Great hike!! Don’t miss it. Moderate uphill for 3 miles and then 1 hard mile to lake. Last mile is tough. Couple trees down. Rock scramble fun. Beautiful lake. Did it with my 10 year old son in 4 hours and 30 minutes. Plan on 4-7 hours round trip depending on fitness.

Amazing hike! I would rate it as hard (at least for this ‘moderate’ hiker) the first part, before you break off the surprise lake trail, is moderate. Nice uphill climb with great views. When you break off to start the journey towards delta lake, it gets tough. Steep with a couple boulder fields to get through. Make sure you wear the right shoes! I recommend a solid pair of hiking boots for this one as you run into snow and steep terrain. Worth the hike though. The view is breathtaking! Can’t wait to try another one in grand Teton!

This is one of my new favorite trails. Hiked 6/24/18. Gorgeous views the whole way... tons of wildflowers. We saw a bunch of marmots and deer. Several people warned us of a bear and cubs on the trail, but we never saw them (thankfully). I would say this trail was moderate until you break off of the Amphitheater Lake trail and get on the less-traveled Delta Lake trail. The boulder fields and uphill climb to get to the lake were very intense. You’re “almost there” for what feels like forever. But man, once you make it, IT’S SO WORTH IT!!!! The color of the lake is unreal. Just incredible. Bring a lot of water and wear good shoes. Enjoy!

Incredible trail! The last mile or so is up a boulder field with water running underneath. The lake is cold but feels great to jump in after a hot scramble up the mtn.

This was an incredible hike. The view at the top was breathtaking. I would without a doubt rank this hike as difficult. Bring a lot of water and get ready for an intense uphill climb through the boulder fields before you reach the breathtaking view at the top. Highly recommend!

One of the best scenic hikes we’ve done in the Tetons! Color of the water at the top was aqua and incredible the views cannot be beat. Was pretty difficult I wouldn’t rate it as moderate especially towards the end it is very steep and the trail is not well marked since it is now kept up with the National Park.

Was an amazing hike. Well worth the effort. This hike should not be labeled moderate however. Had to hike through two boulder fields and approximately 50 yards of very steep elevation gain at the end of the trail. Stay left of the second boulder field as there is better a better trail there.

Me and friend would love to do this hike tomorrow is anyone is interested in joining us. 5/6 +2698306280

Would love to do this hike tomorrow 07/05 if anyone is interested. I'm also by myself and could use some hiking buddies! 949-573-5884

Loved this!!! Lots of water yesterday. I definitely want to return with my bike when it dries out some. On the snake train I was knee deep.... there was no other way except turning around. I watched two people come through it before I did.

A challenging and beautiful hike. Traversing through boulder fields can lead to potentially losing the trail so keep an eye out for cairns. The last push to the lake is the most the challenging but as other reviews have stated, well worth it.

Amazing hike! Easily my favorite at GTNP. Should be rated hard, not moderate. Keep this app handy and track your location - the trail isn’t marked. Once you come off the trail to Amphitheater Lake, it’ll get a lot more difficult - lots of steep climbs and bolder scrambling. Final view is well worth it! :)

Awesome trails! Just gotta make sure e you stay on trail. Watch for the colored tees to make sure you’re on trail and you’ll be fine!!! One of my favs for sure!

This hike progressively gets steeper and steeper. The “fun” starts when you reach the first boulder field, but the end prize is worth it! Follow the cairns and it’ll lead you right to the lake. Beautiful. Be sure to bring bear spray, though. Ran into a mama bear and two cubs— like 50 feet away. That was amazing to see as well (:

Great hike. Be ready for lots of uphill but gut it out, it’s worth it.

Visiting from Ohio. This is an awesome preserve. Lots of different activities available...didn’t get too far made it to the observation tower and then started to down pour... had a nice run in the rain back to the car. Would have liked to explore more... maybe another day.

Breathtaking!

Great hike! Completed on 6/25. We clocked it around 8.8 miles round trip. The “off” trail that leads you to delta lake is fairly easy to find- small foot path and muddy snow so you can see where others crossed the boulder fields from. Absolutely worth it! Lake had a little ice leftover but still able to see the aqua blue water- dip your feet in, they will thank you! There were talks of a Mom and cub black bear hanging off trail but we never saw them.

Can’t believe I haven’t been here before. Fun & well maintained. It rained the day before and there wasn’t much mud, let alone water on the trail.

What an epic hike! Completed on 6/21. It was quite an adventure going off the maintained trail (Amphitheater lake trail). The trail is at first easy to follow, but once reaching the first boulder field, it is easy to get off track. There are many routes across the boulder field, but do not be tempted to go left of it. Cross it using your best judgement to route-find, then find the trail that skirts up the far side. There was lots of post-holing above 8700ft once the sun warmed the remaining snow, but there were no snow crossings longer than 50-60ft. I believe the hike was made easier for us by the snow covering the higher boulder fields. My best advice is to be ready to make decisions as it is not always obvious.
I agree with others that this hike is not for everyone, but does give the most unbelievable view of Grand. By far the best day hike I have ever completed.

Great hike! Wear waterproof shoes for the foreseeable future because a few areas were tough to pass without getting wet. We hiked from Barr to the bridge and it was a hot day but stayed shaded and not too hot.

Great hike. I did run into a few other hikers on the trail but it was not too crowded. The loop can't be completed still but it's still a good hike out. The trails were pretty well marked. I will be back to this one!
