Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in northwestern Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton, which, at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.The name "Tetons" originally was intended to describe several hills near the town of Arco, Idaho. They were named by a French trapper who thought that they resembled a very specific part of the female body. Many years later the name was mistakenly applied to the mountains of present day Grand Teton National Park due to the poor map-making and map-reading standards of the time.

Did this spectacular hike to the junction. Next time to lake solitude. Inspiration point is good and fine, but it’s the canyon that’ll keep us coming back. Going in/out of forested patches only to be hit with the breathtaking mountain views again and again is something I’ll never forget. Crowds blissfully thin out once you get into the canyon.

Easy trail. We went on a cloudy day so we didn't really have a great view. I assume if it's not cloudy you'd have pretty good views of the Tetons however they will be behind you while hiking on the way in. We didn't do the entire route as we didn't feel the view would have been any different at the 'summit'.

We started at the south lot and went clock wise. If you go counterclockwise you will actually get better views of the mountain while hiking. We had to keep turning around to view them. Part of the trail was closed for reconstruction but they give you an alternate route which is very similar. Saw a bald eagle, no bears.

There was a bit of snow but nothing you can't do in boots.

We hiked around the lake counter clockwise and hit the waterfall. Great hike with sun and snow coming off the peaks. Well maintained Trail affords not having to look down for steps but enables you to take in the great views

I went to the summit and saw all kinds of wildlife. From Moose, mule deer and tons of chipmunks. The elevation is quick at first but starts to smooth out. The last 1 1/2 miles were intense especially because of the snow.

I'm not experienced hiker at all, that's why I chose moderate hike. It was amazing, but not so easy, I would put hard rank to this hike, because climbing through the rocks was not funny for me and my girlfriend at all:)) but no matter what never give up and the view was breathtaking!!! Just be ready to climb rocks. The last few meters of home was the most difficult but as I said it's all worth it! The view like in Switzerland, that's for sure! I did hike at the beginning of August!

Did with my two daughters (6, 3) and my wife, we really enjoyed this trail. Great views pretty much most of the way. Some places along the way to stop and eat/ enjoy the views. Falls were beautiful and we continued up to lower inspiration point (the higher one was closed). On the way back we sat by moose ponds for a bit and enjoyed the stillness. Great time!
