Beautiful hike. My husband and I completed last June and there was still snow on the trails.

Relatively easy hike to Beautiful lake. Had it all to myself this morning.

Steep accent, sandy in places but a varied hike. There are Three trails to choose from on accent. One is to the left of the main trail access and is appreciated by those who want a leg workout since it is all sand. Once on top, you can choose to go left or right around the ring and have a different adventure either way. To the left you find many ways to trek over rocky formations, to the right is a wonderful wind bowl that is amazing to boulder around! Then there is the middle trail that gives you a closer look at the geological wonders of the Butte. I’ve hiked this trail about 20 times and it is different every time I go! I’ve taken teens and children and if they are persistent and you go slower for them it is a great adventure and easy to get to.

Beautiful scenery- great hike. I didn’t remember it being this long.

This was an amazing hike. However, like quite a few other reviews, we lost the trail. We ended up climbing down the Butte down and walked around the base of it. An adventure for sure. Went in early morning of Spring.

We got 5.4 miles away from the trail head in our little Toyota Camry and there is a large hill that is basically a mud hill. I went half way up but started to slide. Maybe I’ll bring a 4x4 next time

If you are going to make this much effort go to Table Rock. This is just as hard without the view of the Tetons at the end.

I absolutely love this hike! The view once you get to the top is incredible and the hike itself is very rewarding. This is a GREAT training trail. If you’re planning on going in a much longer harder hike, this one is perfect to get into shape on. 2 miles to the top all uphill. If you make the full loop at the top, be prepared to climb quite a few rocks. The last time I went I did lose the trail on part of it, but if you’re willing to do some basic bouldering then you’ll be totally fine. I wouldn’t recommend taking small children on this hike. I would probably say 12+. There are to many places that small children could fall and get hurt.

Hiked early in the morning. Beautiful views of the Tetons reflected in the still, quiet lake.

Have used this as an access to the cascade canyon trail. It’s a nice warmup. Beautiful and peaceful early in the morning.

Hiked in the snow. Would be easier with snow shoes. But we had a lot of fun!

Muddy!

It's a heavily traveled trail and a great one to start on. We usually hit this one in June each year for an overnight experience and the fishing in the upper lake is usually pretty good! Keep an eye out for moose and deer!

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize this was done mid-October. Probably my favorite hike of the trip. Felt a bit longer that we were expecting, but that may have been because we were tired from the day and the temperatures were quickly dropping. Anyways, very quite hike and the view was amazing at the lake. I had never seen a lake so still, and reflection of the mountains on the water was a mirror image. Beautiful spot to visit.

Absolutely beautiful hike! The lake was gorgeous and there was wild life a plenty from marmots to elk. We were there in June and had a great afternoon hiking.

muddy and icy but we had a blast!

I did this hike in June of 2016 with my wife and son. My family and I thought this was one of the most beautiful hikes we have ever been on with awe inspiring scenery and views. Unfortunately, we were forced to turn back at the top due to too much snow. We were unable to get to Mirror lake. We will definitely hike this trail again.

Camped two nights at jenny lake, did this trail the first day then cascade canyon the next. Two awesome hikes.

Flat, easy trail walk. Some paved areas. Easy to access trailhead right off the road next to the cemetery. A fun walk along side the river. Several benches to stop and rest or eat at. Several man-made bridges are fun for the kids. Plenty of wildlife tracks in the snow. Signs along the way tell about the area and wildlife. Great for kids and family.

It was okay, there are definitely better hikes out there

Took us a few tries but we made it! The trail disappeared with the snow so it was tricky. If there is a lot of snow, I recommend going with someone who is experienced with the trail.

This is a fun little trail and it's a pretty good workout. There are a few things you should look out for though. It gets MUDDY, so don't go for a few days after it rains, and the trail is pretty hard to distinguish in places because of washout and fallen trees so make sure you really know where you are.

Great trail. We made a late season run to the 6.5 mile mark in preparation for next year's Palisades Ultra Trail Series. Creeks were cold and snow was 1-4 inches with lots of animal signs, no actual sightings though. Can't wait until next year!

Strenuous hike with a well-earned reward of two lakes and beautiful scenery at the top. We had a real surprise at Surprise Lake when a mama black bear and her two cubs joined us at the lake for their afternoon drink!
