Nice day hike. The trailhead is a little hard to find, just after a sharp corner of the dirt road. Wyo Peak is the North peak with the broken down fire lookout building. Amazing views on a clear day.

Backpacked into crow creek lakes, set up camp and caught a couple fish for supper. Next day we day hiked up to mount fitz and enjoyed the amazing views. Returned to camp. Then hiked out the following morning. On our second trip here, we did a day hike to the south crow creek waterfall which is inside a small cave. Contact us for details of how to find it.

Nice trail, take trail "S". Start following the fence for awhile into the forest. Ankle deep snow with new small bear tracks that followed along for a kilometer. There are two trails that start the same way and this branches off.

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.

Not a soul on the trail. Very peaceful bubbling brook, meandering creek. Lake super pretty. Did not see (make it) to the camp site, turned around at 5 miles. Fall in Wyoming cannot be beat!

Easy hike to the base of springs. To see the head of the springs, it can get a little steep and the trail can be a bit precarious in a couple spots. Well worth the effort; such a unique spot!

I took my two nieces straight up the slope to the summit without using the switchback trail. We were looking for a decent challenge and were not disappointed.

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.

Hiked up this zig zagging trail in late August that goes from 6,250 feet to 7,800 feet in elevation. The views of Jackson hole are phenomenal.
Other activities at the base are rock climbing, mini golf, a Maze, and two rollercoaster type sled rides that are by a park and restaurant. You can also take the ski lift up and down for 5 dollars if you'd rather not hike.

This hiking is so amazing, it really challenged me as a hiker. I recommend doing the trail in late spring/ early summer. I went and saw almost no one else on the trail. You will probably see some snow at the beginning of the trail if you go during late spring / early summer but it will dissipate quickly. Also be advised you are hiking downhill during the whole hike and then uphill on the return. So, mentally prepare yourself for that. The trail head says the hike only a few miles but it really is the full 7. The sign is incorrect.

There is ample parking with easy access to the trail. Dogs were prevalent and I was impressed with the owners picking up after them. The path was wide enough for two most of the way up. The plateaus at every major turn made for a good place to catch your breath and take in the impressive views of Jackson and the Tetons. It’s like a 10 incline on your treadmill for 45 minutes. Enjoyed it!

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

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.

It’s a rough one, but the location and views are great if you are staying in DT Jackson!

The lake is beautiful getting to trailhead was a bit rough as the road is rocky and deep runoff ruts. Be careful about one third of the way in the trail forks and Someone has turned the arrow left . This takes you to the top of the mountain you need to go right to get to the lake . We hiked an extra 5 miles before we came back and found the lake.

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!

After hiking the steep trail, you will see an amazing view of the Jackson town for reward.

I went up the Snow King Summit trail and down the Sink or Swim trail to make a loop. Great hike but I think I would have preferred the opposite direction (starting up Sink or Swim and down the summit trail). Either way, great views. Lotsa wild flowers. And you can take the chairlift down for $5 if your trip up was enough. It took about 45 minutes up the summit trail at a pretty fast pace.

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

on Clear Creek Trail

This is one of many hikes that can done from the Green River Lake trailhead, which is extensively used for camping and lake access. There are places to launch boats and swim. The 18 mile dirt road to the trailhead is in good shape and people drive it pretty fast. Clouds of mosquitos in places, but my repellent worked just fine. Without repellent you will be miserable. Bear spray is also recommended, but my hike was bear free. This is a popular access point to the Wind Rivers Range/Bridger Teton wilderness for backpacking. The day hike options are limited. I had planned to go to Slide Lake, but the bridge across the river was washed out and it did not look safe to ford, as it was deep and running vigorously. So, I went to the natural bridge, which was underwhelming, but it was a nice enough hike.The trail continues a bit past the natural bridge, but then seemed to peter out. The wildflowers were beautiful and there is a nice waterfall right where you turn left on to the Clear Creek trail after passing the lake. On the way back, I did a loop around the other side of the lake on the Lakeside trail, but kind of regretted it, as it was a lot of up and down. This worked out to about an 11 mile hike. I saw a few other hiking groups, but it was relatively uncrowded on the trails.

You can not access the trail that this app leads you to. It is impossible. There is another way to access the Lafayette Lake but not via this trailhead.

Fantastic trail!

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.

Fun and quick workout.

This trail has a tremendous amount of blow down once you get off the Cliff Creek trail. It needs trail maintenance before it is back to being a five star trail. Beautiful area. Very buggy in mid-July. One stream crossing.

I just finished this hike with my 11 year old son (his first hike in the Winds)! I absolutely love this hike...the views, the smells, and the water make this an amazing hike.

The river crossings were fun and extremely refreshing (okay, cold but awesome).

I also took advantage of this hike to test a new hammock which made it even more fun.
