HikingGreat!

Absolutely beautiful trail! The journey itself was stunning and the views at the end were incredible. We were the only ones on the trail on a Saturday. I recommend downloading the trail map so you don’t get lost. People out and about mentioned fallen trees causing hikes to take much longer than normal but this trail was fine.

Recent wind damage has brought down a lot of trees in the area. Cleanup is in progress. Still manageable, but a couple obstacles in a few places. Otherwise pretty easy hike. Viewpoint at the end is definitely worth the trip!

HikingBlowdown

Trees down over the first 6ish miles in either direction. The trails are not passable from a mile or to in to Dads Lake; stay to the median side from Dads Lake to the trailhead to access the meadows, which are the alternate route that allows this hike to be completed right now. Fewer trees down in the other direction; there is a meadow along the lateral side for part of it. Scattered snow throughout. We did the route counterclockwise with the hope of seeing fewer people...recommended as our campsites were pretty empty. We didn’t hike all that far (route finding with the trees down) at Big Sandy Lake the first night and at Marms Lake the second. Our dog did fine through all but the most gnarly of downed tree crossings. Heading down the scree field at Texas pass a bit difficult with the snow, but that will probably melt soon. So beautiful!

Trees down!!!! Between Dad’s and parking take meadows as much as possible. Challenging hike with all the trees.

HikingGreat!

One of my all time favorite hikes! Truly Breathtaking! Hiked to Jackass pass as a day hike (8 hour round trip). I felt like I cheated on my love for the Tetons as I love these mountain just as much, maybe more. I will be back for a 3-5 day backpacking trip. Too much beauty and awe to squeeze into one day.

HikingGreat!

Amazing hike. The first 5-6 miles are relatively flat and enjoyable. Then it starts to climb and things get fun. We continued on past Arrowhead Lake to the top of Jack Ass Pass. You've got to add this on--the views are spectacular. No mosquitoes but lots of hikers and climbers. I estimated about 300 cars in the lot and along the road. Still, one of my all time favorite hikes.

HikingGreat!No shade

Breathtaking!! A must if hiking in the Winds. Ended up doing this as a day hike - was on the trail by 5:30am to beat the crowds; saw no people for 2 hours. Made it to top of jackass pass by 1030am. Hiked down to Lonesome Lake before turning around from there. Overall took 10 hours and that is with stopping to take pictures and eating lunch and soaking feet at Arrowhead Lake. Got really hot in the afternoon - some flies; but not bad at all. It’s worth the crowds indeed! But sadly not the place to go if you want to get away from people. It’s a trail you’ll definitely be sharing.

Beautiful views, but way too crowded. Too many people have discovered it. Maybe off-season would be better.

Great acclimation hike. Read other reviews for trail description. Hardly any bugs, go early to get a parking spot and avoid the crowds. We only saw 2 people in the way up but quite a few on way down.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful hike that was just about 4.2 miles out and back by starting to the left on Pole Creek Trail. Trail is not marked but easily found about 0.3 miles in, just past the man-made rock-way that was built due to bad drainage. You will see it to the left and a Boulder in the center between it and the Pole Creek Trail. Two creek crossings for the pups and phenomenal views at the top. Some jerk was sitting atop the very top outcropping that has the best views and photo opportunity- he was scratching g the range- which is cool, but at least offer to step off for a few minutes while people get a photo. Not busy on a Wednesday afternoon.

Thanks to the advice of the lady at the visitors center we took a left off of Pole Creek trail. This trail isn’t marked and to be honest we got lucky when we found it but we were so glad that we did! It’s easy enough but the altitude makes it a little rough when you aren’t used to it and we aren’t. You don’t want to stop and rest for too long though because the mosquitos will carry you away. I would highly recommend taking this trail if you have the chance, abundant wild flowers and the pay off at the end is absolutely incredible!!

Hiking

By far one of the best ways to begin hiking in this area, keeping the hike to about a mile and 3/4 one way for an exceptionally rewarding view. This was my second hike in this location and I wish it had been the first. Most of the way out is moderate incline with a few sections of trail that get steep for a short period of time. There’s a tiny brook to cross a few times, a beautiful medow about 2/3 of the way out, bunches of wild flowers, wonderful smells! The view at the end is magnificent. Remember though, if you’re new to hiking, go with friends, take your time, stay hydrated, bring a snack. The altitude alone, if your not used to it, can wipe you out. But this trail is an excellent place to start! Oh yes, use and bring bug spray. And a camera

Such a beautiful hike. We did a day hike from Jenny Lake. I'm glad we didn't have our heavy packs for this section. It definently will wear you out but the view is amazing.

Wonderful hike. The wild flowers, stream crossing and view at the end makes this a gem! It is the first unmarked trail to your left after starting on pole creek trail.

This was a great hike through the forest with a rewarding view at the trails end. Lovely meadows, wild flowers and a creek added to the trip. Watch close for the fork off of the Pole Creek Trail. There is a fair sized rock on the center left. We saw only two folks on our way back down. We prepared for bugs but met few.

Hiking

Hiked this trail between 7/24 - 7/25. While the cirque can be completed as a day hike I think you’re cheating yourself out of being able to truly absorb the views if you don’t make it an overnight. The hike is mellow and flat until about 5-6 miles in at Big Sandy Lake where it begins to climb. We also encountered a moose right off trail as we were hiking back so be aware of how to handle wild life encounters.
