Went up today. Not sure why it’s rated hard, I would rate it moderate. Used crampons when I got above the bridge. Very nice hike, this trail would be great in the summer with all the shade. Very beautiful when you get up around 7500 feet.

It was definitely difficult for me, though I did it roundtrip in 3 hrs and 30 mins. Trail was well marked and very nice! The view was beautiful with snow on the mountains! Trail does have a bit of snow when you start getting higher up.

Great hike with stunning views. Highly recommended

Fantastic hike in the snow. Few people and amazing views.

Just did this oct 14. got within 100m from the top, waist deep snow and after hours of making fresh tracks we called it! Past the junction there was no way to find a trail. With it wind chill we think it was about zero degrees. If you're going to go later this season I suggest gaiters and snowshoes!

Well that was a lesson learned the hard way ..

While amazing and am extremely glad I pushed through it, I made the poor decision of not wearing pants while deciding to summit this mountain...

At any rate, it was an amazing hike through the snow and October weather.

There is a register up there in a container with an odd / amusing assortment of trinkets and whatnot.

:-)

Absolutely a unique hike and well worth the effort to get to the top. Views are unparalleled.

really hard, not like a stair master, much higher steps and increasing elevation. met several people from sea level states, requires lots of breaks to 'catch your breath.'

Cold and snowy today! First part very muddy, turning to ice and then near the lake hiked in 2 feet of snow. We were going to hike to Desolation but didn’t have our snowshoes on! I like this hike but today was not great. Slipped and fell a lot on the way down even in good hiking boots.

Awesome hike, but it is certainly not 8.9 miles like other posts state. This is a good preparer for something like Jacobs ladder to lone peak. The last mile is definitely the steepest. Easy to get lost also. I did this one alone and there was no one around after the second waterfall. It’s pretty tough, but rewarding.

Lots of snow. Still very beautiful. Saw 3 moose and 3 deer along the trail.

Went yesterday between some rain storms this week. What an amazing hike. Ate lunch on the hip between Raymond and Gobblers in the snow. Including lunch and a stop at the top to change socks, it was 2.5 hours up. I'm not much of a trail runner but I ended up running down most of it so I was back in just shy of 1 hour. This will become an annual fall hike for sure.

Great hike. Tough hike. Several steep and technical sections but overall challenging enough and very rewarding. The false summit will have you fooled but if you keep pushing, you'll make it to the top and love the views. From the the false summit to the top, the trail is a little tricky to follow. Be careful! Took me just over 3 hours roundtrip with no breaks until the top and some trail running on the way down.

Awesome hike with beautiful views. Took us 3 hours and 15 minutes to go up and back. Pretty warm going up but glad we had layers going down. Passed 5 people the whole time and we started at 10 am.

Great hike. We clocked it at 8.2 miles. It's a nice gradual incline. Falls colors were spectacular. At the actual lake, most of the color was already dropped, but the lake itself is a gorgeous emerald green color. On a Wednesday with a mid-morning start, we only saw one bike and 2 or 3 other hikers. Do this one!

Moderate to strenuous hike. Shaded the whole way. Nice fall colors. Good destination.

It was around 5 miles up face trail, and 7 miles down huckleberry. We enjoyed seeing different views on each trail.

Hiked this trail just this past Saturday, starting at 9 am, and it was one of the most colorful fall hikes I've ever been on. So gorgeous, especially starting out in the morning with fewer hikers. Now is the time to do this one! The trees at the lake are all gray but the entire way up is the main attraction. I encountered many bikers but all of them were pleasant. Spooked myself and thought I heard some growling about 1/3rd of the way up but on the way down I determined it to be some water pipes gurgling (it was right at the stream). Overall an amazing trail.

This hike was awesome! Not too steep, just the right length of time for me (1 hour 15 m to get up to the lake) and beautiful! The colors are amazing right now. A lot of shade and tons of aspens. It is a busy trail, especially with bikers but it was fine for me.

For me, this was a difficult trail. Not necessarily because of the length or climb, but because of the trail surface. Most of this trail, I estimate 60-70%, is extremely rocky. The footing is slippery and treacherous. There is a base of 2 to 3 inches of fine pea gravel. Sometimes you're walking on that and it's like walking on the beach. Other times there is a layer of softball to football sized rocks on top of the pea gravel. You can turn an ankle if you're not careful. Frankly, I got sick of it. It was extremely slow going because of this.

The trail is a steady uphill to the top and then the last half-mile or so the grade increases. Then the trail ends at the base of the cliff and you have to scramble about 100 feet or so up and over the rocks on a grade that is about a 60 degree angle. For me it was a notch or two short of needing a rope. It's pretty dangerous.

But the views are great, it's a very pretty canyon. I saw no other hikers, but about half way down three motorized mountain bikers came up. There was a dead animal carcass about two thirds of the way up where the creek joins the trail. It looks like it's been dead there a week or two. I couldn't tell what it was.

At the very top there were animal tracks. Whatever has three toes and is hooved. I assume a mountain goat but I never saw anything.

The trail is fine and as advertised but man someone is going to get hurt by the bikers if they haven't already. About 10 or 12 went by me and only one announced themselves and stopped. Of the others, 2 went by at top speed, head down, right in the middle of the trail, and I barely got out of the way. The rest never slowed or announced but I heard them in plenty of time to step aside. Good thing too or I'd be in the hospital right now.

This trail was amazing. We loved the section of white birch trees in the fall it’s beautiful!! This trail offered a number of different sceneries all beautiful in there own way. All uphill and downhill with a few little breaks in between! Overall awesome trail!!

First time to the lake. Wasn't too bad of an incline. I've done worse. The lake was a cool greenish color. There weren't a lot of Aspen in the area that still had leaves on them. There was a lot of color along the rest of the trail. Heading down I came across a few deer (no bucks).

Much less traveled, trail is great until the meadow then gradually fades and splits numerous times. General rule: stay LEFT on the way up! Stay LEFT of the large stand of 5-10' tall pines on the lower part of the scree field. Look for the cairns. Long slog up the scree slope with loose footing in places and then some easy scrambling. I recommend NOT going alone on this one, and first doing Timp, Pfeifferhorn, Sundial Peak before attempting this difficult climb.

I usually opt for hikes with peaks as the destination but this trail is a new favorite. We hiked up and back in about three hours with five to ten minutes at the lake. The trees are still changing so it's not too late to enjoy them.

Coming from the east coast, this was one of the most spectacular views we have ever seen. Face up, Huckleberry down is the way to go. When you enter the parking lot, the first trailhead is for Huckleberry. Walk a few hundred feet towards South Teton trailhead to get to the trailhead for Face, right next to the outhouse. Bring extra layers for the top, it can get very windy.

I have been wanting to hike this for a few years now. It was well worth it. Great view of the Tetons.

Most incredible hike I’ve been on. It has everything. We went in July and there was still snow on part of the trail so missed some switch backs on a steep part but still made it. I got altitude sickness around 9-10k feet but didn’t figure that out until we got back down to 8k. Came across a family of moose and we elected to go back through the valley, same way we went up. We lost the trail a few times due to the snow. Take plenty of water and give yourself time to acclimate to the altitude if possible. I was useless toward the top. Great close up view of Grand Tetons on the table top. Beavers seemed to be following us... maybe some people feed them. Start early, take bear spray, food and water and a good app like this one.

It’s a pretty nice area. Not as scenic as some other nearby trails but it sees less traffic. Beyond the official trail end is where the fun starts. It’s really rugged and magestic in the upper basin. I made it to the upper ridge but could tell I didn’t have it in me to push on to Twin Peaks. I’ll do an overnighter sometime in the upper basin and hit the summit fresh! Thanks to Steve who showed me the ropes up there.

Beautiful hike. Steady incline, but not too bad. My GPS clocked me at 8.0 miles round trip. Took a total of 5 hrs (spent some time at the lake). We missed most of the fall leaves, but the hike was still nice. Ran into a few bikers and a hand full of trail runners. No wildlife :(
