Did this a couple of years back. Amazing hike with amazing views at the top. Not an easy hike so very rewarding once completed.

Went all the way to lake solitude.... fantastic

Stunning, really loved it

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

Do the full trail!!!! We saw so many people turn around at the falls but we kept going to the top of the mountain and it was SOOO worth it. Probably my favorite hike we did in Yellowstone! The view of all the geysers steaming in September was like something I’ll probably never see again. Amazinggggg!!!!

We didn’t go too far but the river is beautiful! We did not catch any fish here but did see several big ones :)

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

I hiked this at the end of August and there was a lot of snow. I almost got blown over by the wind at the top! It is steep the whole way up except for a few spots. If you are doing it, come prepared with water and layers.

This was an easy hike to begin a three day back country adventure for us. By accident, we timed it perfectly to arrive right before the geyser erupted, and it was beautiful. We didn’t bother with old faithful and from everything we heard, this was better anyway. I was certainly wowed by this experience! Our back country hike ended through this trail as well, so it was a great “almost home” marker for me, too

Hiked to the prismatic overlook, and then finished on this trail. Totaled about 10 miles. The imperial geyser was the highlight of the trip. Hike was pretty boring compared to other hikes, but was very easy. Worth seeing the geyser over the falls or prismatic.

I hiked this trail with my 50 year old mother. If she can do it, you can too. That being said there is a point about a mile in that the trail path got obscured. My mother and I ended up climbing the mountain off trail for a while until we met back up with it. We we're able to take the trail down the whole way. The view on top is beautiful, but make sure you're prepared with hiking equipment and a positive attitude.

Was exactly like the descriptions said. We started out around 09:00 and took 5 hours to get to top. I’m very out of shape now days and refused not to give up until we made it. My wife waited on me lots going up but kept me motivated. The views going up and at the top are good enough motivation.

We hiked this trail in order to summit Disappointment Peak. Before beginning the last leg of our summit, I took a refreshing (and frigid) swim in Amphitheater Lake. I believe we counted 18 switchbacks. Both lakes were breathtaking!

Beautiful views!!! We felt like we were on top of the world as we ate our lunch. There was snow, ice and mud on the trail making it tricky to get to the top. I suggest to go a little earlier in the season Did it with a 5,9,11,13, and 15 year old and 2 out of shape parents. The whole trip up and down took 5 hours.

Hiked this trail to the overlook. Wow! it's a gorgeous view. I'd call it a moderate hike. We are seniors in our 60's, and felt like it gave us a little challenge. We packed our lunch and sat at the overlook eating on a beautiful fall afternoon. The only disappointment we had was the lack of wildlife. Even from the overlook, we could see no wildlife. But, that's the way it's been the entire trip. Where are all the animals? Wolves taking care of them?

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

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

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!

My body is in pain, but a good kind of pain. Well worth it for the awesome view of the waterfall! Just know that it is more than 7.4 miles, my Fitbit had it at just under 24,000 steps!

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 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.

Awesome for wildlife!

My husband and I hiked this Trail on September 15th, 2018 on our way in the north east entrance of Yellowstone National Park. It was beautiful, picturesque hike that was nice to loosen up our hiking legs up for more difficult hikes. There was a nice variety to the surroundings. Some thicker forest area while hiking up a hill then it opened up to a beautiful lake with valleys surrounding it. There were ducks in the lake and a few fishermen fishing.  It was a very peaceful hike.

Trail closed for bear activity. 9/26/18

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.

Starts with a pleasant walk through a forest by the canyon, with a couple of nice lookout points. The trail really starts to shine 2-3 miles in once you start your descent into the canyon. Great views, lots of waterfalls and hot springs. You eventually make your way down to the river itself, before a tough hike back up to where you came from. We had a close encounter with a black bear on the way back quite close to the trailhead, so be prepared!
