We took the more obvious trail that leads north and up. We took the small game trail to the right that runs midway along the cliffy part and scrambled up to the top of the cliffs (proper scramble!) and did a loop back down to parking. Amazing and short (however not the trail in the map) and technical. Also there are hunters out so wear bright orange!

I wish I had done this hike on a clear day. The view of the Tetons would have been amazing. Regardless, this was a really fun trail. It is a great work out and is clearly defined.
I made a Gopro video of my hike if you are interested in seeing the fall/snowy scenery. https://youtu.be/4_ojs_Y8gGg

The difficult hike is well worth it. I was there on Oct. 1st and 2nd and didn't see a person the whole time. There are some up and downs but you are mostly hiking up hill the entire time. The views are great.

lovely hike...not too difficult....maybe easy to moderate. we started going up and to the left for the loop. keep your offline maps of this with you as there are other trails not marked on the map. also couldn't find the red route where it intersects with the black dotted line so just took the black dotted line route back

Great hike! 2 hours tops including our time hanging out at the lake. Start early as it gets warm! My dog and I encountered a huge moose on the trail, so be cautious, as usual. Plenty of creeks for the pups and there was barely anyone else out there.

Trail is great, uphill for the first half at least, but beautiful enough to distract you. The lake is beautiful as is the rest of the hike up towards the peak. I did not make it to the peak but my friends did. (The altitude slows me down, and my friends are much fitter than I am) The road requires a four wheel drive with high clearance and you need to NOT care that the sides of your car will get scratched up. As a result of how far out this trail head it, it is never crowded. You’ll see other people but most of the time you’ll have solitude. Another positive, dogs allowed and they can swim in Goodwin Lake.

If you park at the trail head it’s more like 6 miles to the lake. But if you have 4wd you can drive up a ways. It’s steadily goes up the whole way there to the lake. Would rate more moderate because of steady incline. Beautiful small lake up top. Didn’t see any wildlife but that could be because we had our dog. It’s nice that it’s all down hill on the way back. Took under 2 hours there and back not including stops

Love the Teton views. Not a lot of shade and can be buggy. Favorite time would be September before the snow flys.

Blue Miner Lake is a hidden gem! The hike is worth all the views of Blue Miner Lake, Emerald Lake (off to the left) and the gorgeous meadows of wild flowers. The first half of the hike is difficult because you are on a consistent ridge line. Just prepare yourself mentally and know that once the ridge line is over the beautiful meadows begin and it flattens out. Take bear spray because you never know. I’ve seen moose and mountain sheep on this hike. Enjoy!

Beautiful and easy hike. I love that dogs are allowed on this trail.

Beautiful hike, with views of meadows, hills, and flowers. It wasn't too strenuous, but the trail is exposed to the sun in most places and there were a lot of flies and mosquitoes there.

Wow. The vistas, outcroppings, and meadows would have been enough. But the wildflowers in addition made the hike surreal! I have never seen such density and variety. If I had to have a groundhogs day and repeat this hike every day, I'd be good with that!!

Definitely not a moderate trail. Strenuous due to the extreme climbs in elevation but worth every minute. Absolutely beautiful. There is also an old fire look out at the very top of the mountain to sleep.

Amazing wildflowers and views.

Seemed shorter than 6 miles the sign post claims. Beautiful wildflowers along the trail. Dogs not required to be on leash so just be alert with your own dog. Lake was kind of low but still easy to get into and get your feet wet. Lots of bugs!

Beautiful hike! My dog loved the little lake!!

The hike itself is very pretty with tons of wild flowers.Heavily trafficked with many dogs not kept on leashes. Tons of flies and mosquitos making the hike unpleasant. Parking was near the bottom of the pass and congested.

Shorter than 6 miles unless I found the wrong lake. My GPS said it was around 4.6 miles. Easy and beautiful #muchlikemyself #justkidding

Enjoyed the hike - beautiful wildflowers! We hiked to the meadows... be prepared for a steady climb up and carry bug spray.

Very beautiful hike in mid-July. The wildflowers are abundant. They keep your interest along the entire trail which has a nice mix of tree cover and open meadows. The destination lake is nothing special compared to other mountain lakes - low water level at this time, uninteresting shore, and lots of mosquitoes. We walked 1/4 mile back down the trail to an open meadow with great views to have our planned lunch.

FYI this trail is not in Grand Teton NP

Beautiful hike. There is a creek crossing, so be prepared for that. Wildflowers and the occasional patch of snow made the hike even more interesting.

FYI, the trailhead map call this a ‘moderate’ six mile hike, with 1000 ft elevation. Our AW said 4.6 miles out and back. Great flowers, and a cold lake!

Great hike. All clear of snow and lots of beautiful wildflowers along the way. Got to enjoy the summit with less wind than normal!

made it to the trail split and then some bad looking weather scared us. this trail is beautiful, especially all the flowers in the beginning. WARNING: getting to the trailhead is a bit difficult without 4 wheel drive or high clearance vehicle. We parked about 1 mile away and walked up the road. Hopefully will do this trail again later and make it to the top.

Lots of entertaining flowers, rocks, trees, views as you go along. Trail was a good workout but not too terrible. I wish I would have had ear muff and another layer or two so sitting by the lake was not so cold. I also wish the fork in the trail near the end was marked to take the left fork. I'm not sure where the right one goes.

Hiked this June 30, 2018–beautiful wildflowers but still a decent amount of snow to get to the summit. Still doable but it slowed us down! Definitely a favorite hike.
