FAVORITE TRAIL IN TETONS!!!! Go all the way!

We did not make it all the way but the views were incredible in the canyon!

Beautiful lookout point to the Yellowstone canyon!

Amazing views. Steep start then a flat, visually stunning hike. This was an all-star hike.

Did this as a loop hike over the course of 3 days. Rough outline was: Trailhead, Dad's Lake, Barren Lake, Texas Pass into the Cirque, out over Jackass Pass back to trailhead. Surprised at the lack of mosquitoes in early August. AMAZING hike, but Texas Pass is not for the faint of heart. The only other hard part was picking our way down the boulders into the Cirque.

Highly recommend a bit of training before this trip, but the views are so incredibly worth it.

I don't usually review trails, but this one is pretty great! We went a little later, so it wasn't as busy. But we got to a point in the trail where a moose and her baby were on the trail. We had to wander off the trail but it was an awesome experience. The scenery is also beautiful. It's 4 miles but it's very casual.

Beautiful. May take longer than you think to complete the hike. Route-finding can be difficult in the boulder section and may not be appropriate for children, older folks, or disabled. A stunning annual run for us with access to the Middle/Grand saddle.

Favorite Big Horn Mountains hike. One of my happy places. The hike out is short but pretty strenuous. Don’t attempt with a hangover.

Lovely views above Phelps Lake. Take the time to go beyond Patrol Cabin as the canyon opens out and you get tremendous views. There was a light covering of snow in the Canyon which made it all the more spectacular. The aspens were at their best

One of the best hikes I have ever done. Absolutely breathtaking views the entire way around. We spotted some bears ob the trail ahead of us as well.

We did this as a long day hike in the clockwise direction in July, and the downhill section immediately after the divide was still pretty snowy. We slowly stepped our way down without crampons or anything but it was definitely a little sketchy. Patches of snow after that but nothing we couldn't manage.

Hiked this Oct 14. Snow at Patrol Cabin and into the canyon. Tough hike if you are just acclimating to the elevation-it’s a long, uphill trek to the cabin from Phelps Lake. We did go into the canyon a bit, but there was about 6” of snow so we didn’t go too far. The switchbacks are not super steep, just constant uphill for a while. Beautiful scenery, although most of the aspens had lost their leaves.

First time hiking in US national park, we are from Hong Kong and in a group of 4. A bit worried at first Becoz it is a bear zone area and we bought a can of bear spray. The park ranger/ guide at Jenny lake was very helpful showing us how to use it and even changed ours (we lost safety lock) with another can for us. It was a very good hike except we had to catch our breath a lot as we live at coastline, altitude is an issue but not a big one - just hike slowly

But the view is worth it. Ranger suggested us doing cascade trail first then we did hidden fall and lower inspiration point (since we couldn’t pass through hidden fall to cascade trail).

It was end of Sep, we took the 1st ferry at 10am then started hiking at 10.30am. We didn’t finish the whole trail, we just walked 1/4 and walked back and went to hidden fall and lower inspiration. I guess total we walked 7km. We just took our time and enjoyed taking the picture and the view.
Able to see a few mooses at Cascade Trail, but didn’t bump into any bear. We saw bear footprint (not 100% sure but it looked v much it was) when we hike up the cascade trail - we were the 1st group on that day. Lucky 4-6 of other hikers followed the same route as we got off the boat

We didn’t drink a lot of water as weather is very cool when we hiked, some sunshine but I still find it cold
To me it is not very hard - just hiked slowly. It is a bit steep at first but after that there is wide open nice view

Skipped the boat and hiked around Jenny lake, down to the boat dock (the trail through inspiration point was closed) then hiked up to hidden point and into the canyon. Great views and a fairly easy hike once you get into the canyon. Saw moose and supposedly missed a mama grizzly and two cubs ( good and bad.) by like a minute. Hiked to the trails fork, had lunch and turned around. I had a nasty blister so it took me longer than my typical hiking speed. Saw quite a few trail runners on the trail. Would do this hike again and try add lake solitude.

Jenny Lake ferry was not running for the season so yo save over two miles by coming in from String Lake. I would rate this a moderate hike. The highlight of this beautiful hike was a peaceful encounter with a huge moose and his lady friend. A number of hikers around and they knew were there but kept on eating

Just awesome. Start this hike from the String Lake trailhead (parking area) which technically ads another mile or so, because you have to go around the Jenny Lake loop to get to the Cascade Canyon trailhead.

From the parking area, go left. You’ll see an information station on your left & a bridge on your right. Cross the bridge and stay left at the fork (going right at the fork will start the String Lake loop). You’ll see the gorgeous views of Jenny lake on your left, and eventually come to the Cascade Cayon trailhead, among the others like Hidden Falls. Go right, and the trail begins. Awesome the whole way.

My wife and I are beginners, and we got to the end of this trail in 3h 20m with excessive stopping for pictures. Made it back to parking area in about 2 hours booking it to beat the sunset. No bears, but we saw 4 moose!

Went in July. Snowpack was very light and the views were amazing!

Gorgeous waterfall. Very short walk. Very very very crowded.

Drove the Jeep directly to the trail head. Hiked out yesterday with my husband, son and dog. Trail was well maintained but a bit slick with fresh snow cover but we made it down and back up without any issues. Definitely need good shoes/boots if there is any moisture on the ground. What a BEAUTIFUL falls! Was definetly worth it!!

We managed to do this trail in 4 hours between rain showers. The canyon is wonderful and great fall colors. No sign of bears but it is prime territory’s I tale precautions

Nice hike to end the day! Beautiful fall colors!

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!

Awesome for wildlife!

Really pretty. Did the trail with wife and three kids. First part, to Taggart Lake, was lead by a park ranger, which was awesome. Great variety of scenery along the trail, with fantastic views of Grand Teton throughout.

First real big hike in Tetons. So worth the hike. Definitely gotta go again. Challenging hike and rock scrambling.

Great trail with great views the whole way! Was surprised by a grizzly on the trail about 15 yrds from us as we turned a corner about halfway from the inspiration point trailhead. Ended up driving to inspirational point.

Challenging and beautiful! We started off at the hidden falls trail and continued into the Cascade Canyon trail to the fork and back. Saw mama bear and two cubs on the rocks in the distance. Someone saw a moose in the area. Also had a lovely encounter with three mule deer. Amazing amazing views and differing scenery! Lush dense Forrest, open meadows and river, and rocky terrain. Solid 10 mile day.

Nice easy hike, a little crowded

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!
