Incredible payoff at the end. Easily one of my top 3 hikes ever.

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!

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

Started at lake Taggart. Hiked this the first day of our Tetons and Yellowstone trip. I live in Houston so would have been a good idea to do a warm hike. The hike felt murderous. The altitude really got me. Great views and a nice challenging hike though. Will definitely do it again, this time after a warm up hike

Traveled on 10/12/18. Trails were pretty moderate until the boulder fields. Boulders were covered with several inches of snow which made it even more challenging. Cairns were extremely helpful in guiding. We were the first to travel this morning, so we actually followed a wolf’s footprints all the way to the top. Views were incredible, would love to try again when the lake is not frozen.

Very beautiful around the lake!

One of the best hikes i've ever done, extremely tough but SO worth the effort!

on Delta Lake Trail

7 days ago

Our group did this hike on 10-5-18 right after an early snowfall. The first half of the trail was easy going, but as we approached the first large tree fall and entered the boulder fields, the ground became very muddy. While it was a little slow going through the boulders, the most difficult part was climbing the muddy trail at the end toward the lake. I highly recommend yak tracks and trekking poles to navigate this section if hiking in similar conditions. I’m not sure I’d attempt this hike with any more snowfall unless footwear is designed for the ice, mud, and/or snow. With that said, the lake was absolutely glorious and breathtaking. It was worth every step up and back to see it. It’s cold at the top, so bring layers to allow an enjoyable stay.

Trail closed :(

Took 2 hours to the lake edge, about the same going down. Hardest part was navigating the rock / boulder fields, but, after reading several other more detailed posts from AllTrails, it was not bad. The rock piles left by other hikers was most helpful!

Hike was tough, especially the steep bolder field to get to the lake. The view of the lake/tetons was worth it but definitely difficult.

So gorgeous!!!! Loved the hike!

the reviews are all correct! we started this hike at the taggart lake TH so added a few miles but was worth it. heard elk after Bradley lake. once on the split up to amphitheatre, we saw a teenage bear. glad we had our spray but did not need to use it. elevation gain was a natural stairmaster so once you have your pace, you're good to go. bring plenty of water and a light lunch to enjoy at either lake. we met a great aspiring dentist- Tina from Seattle. hike on girl!

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

Amazing and beautiful hike to patrol cabin. So many different landscapes, and you have to make it into the canyon. Simply breathtaking. Did it with the fall colors!! A favorite hike for sure!

Trail Closed. 9/30

It took us about 3 hours to go up and 1.5 to come down. Gorgeous lakes at the end that make the entire way up (which is relentlessly uphill) worth the effort. While we didn’t have hiking poles- this trek did convince me I need to buy them. Several people saw a mama bear and her cub, but we missed them.

It is beautiful in the fall season. We started at 8:30am on Saturday morning, and finished at 12:30pm, spending about half an hour around the cave area. Not so many people in the morning, but encountered quite many groups on our way back.

Great hike. 11/10. Took us about 2 hours to make it up, generally fast paced hikers, little to no breaks.
Not hard to find at all. The trail is pretty well marked and worn down. All you need is a general sense of direction and some common sense.
Follow the maps provided by AllTrails and your golden.
Parker Rangers/ workers at the information desk were a pain in the butt. We asked them where the trail head (parking areas) was to get to delta lake and they absolutely refused to tell us. I asked 2 separate rangers before I decided they all had sticks up their butts and that it was a lost cause. They both said something along the lines of “Delta lake is a social trail, which means it is not maintained by the park. We strongly suggest you attempt the amphitheater and surprise lake trails instead” and I said, yeah that’s fine, I’ve already hiked those is it the same place? And once again word for word Park Ranger Frank (that was his name) repeated word for word what he had told me refusing to give me any information. So I was quite astounded after I asked him why he isn’t telling me information about it because, it is your freakin job, he started with all bologna. And honestly on top of that, not even in the slightest regard communicating to me like a normal human being. I was pretty pissed. I’ve visited a ton of National Parks and it seems the only park where rangers are absolute a-hole degenerate losers is in Teton National Park. So In closing I have no idea why they were trying to deter us from going to delta lake.

I will add, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE HIKE. It’s not difficult until you get to the unkept part, but even then, if you’ve ever hiked anything somewhat strenuous before it isn’t a problem. Absolutely breath taking views. Well worth it.

Oh and save yourself the headache and just don’t mention to the poop sniffing park rangers your headed to delta lake.

I love AllTrails. Thank you.

Hard but totally worth it

Hiked this trail with my wife and 2 teenage sons on September 26. Beautiful hike. It's rough getting there but well worth it. Unbelievable views of the lake and the valley.

Great early fall day. This trail is beautiful and very accessible as well. We did the full seven mile loop around the lake without straining. The 700 foot elevation change is mostly in the first mile or so. The rest was just a great walk in the woods. Saw what we believe was a mink, a ptarmigan and even a bear. Fantastic trail!

Beautiful hike! BRING BEAR SPRAY! We were growled at as we switchbacked down the lake. You can read more about it here: https://practicalvagabonds.com/caution-bears-in-the-area/

I hiked this one to about 1.5 miles past the cabin, through the meadow and into some outstanding forest on September 23, 2018. Fall colors were everywhere!

Did this hike 2 days ago with my girlfriend. It is challenging, especially if you don’t choose the right path. If you follow the rockpiles, you end up passing the last boulder field on the left side which is steep and sandy, which makes it easy to slip, especially on the way down. I fell once on the way down, no injuries. However, we saw a woman that broke her arm due to tripping on the boulders and a teenage girl whose bear spray went off in her face when tripping. So go straight across the last boulder field, or even better: by bypassing underneath it. Delta lake is truly amazing, the colours are extraordinarily beautiful and it’s only lightly trafficked. The water was frozen on the side, so swimming was not an option for us. We reached the lake after 2.5 hours. Start with this lake and spend a good amount of time at it, before heading to Surprise and Amphitheater. Hiking those 2 lakes is a piece of cake although the switchbacks get rather boring. When you reach those lakes around 4 or 5-ish, most of the people will be gone so you have the lakes to yourself. Don’t bring too much water, a filter will do the job on this hike. On the way down we saw a brown bear eating berries and passing us at a distance of 1 meter which was scary and amazing at the same time. The elevation can be tough, especially if you’re from a flat country like ours (The Netherlands).

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.

road closed middle end of September

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.
