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.

We started from the Lodge parking lot, hiked to the overlook and back, only 6.8 miles, but a great day. Wildflowers galore and mountain vistas. Saw five other hikers on entire hike!

Gorgeous views but much of the tail is underwater and it's a bit confusing if you want to walk the perimeter. Would recommend going to the hidden falls or just wandering around

I don't know how this trail is listed as a mile and a half, however it is 100% worth a stop. The scenery is so beautiful that I would live in this dirt floor cabin to stay here. Don't miss the stream, along with the dams. Also, check out the prairie dogs and sod roof ...and of course you can't miss the view!

Absolutely beautiful trail! We kept going to Bradley lake, but Taggart Lake was so much better. After hiking over and past gorgeous flowing streams, we made it to this spectacular lake. The water was crystal clear and there was a huge boulder on which to sit. We spent time with our feet in the water, which our kids (11 and 8) loved! This trail is a must see.

Still one of my favorite hikes. The last 1.25 miles you will encounter snow intermittently at first, and then nonstop. Crampons and poles would be most helpful for the last part! Still beautiful, and always worth it.

The last part of the trail to the lakes was in the snow in the middle of june. Did not make all trail and came back. Forest in the first part and very beatifull views in the second part of distance to the lakes in the valley. Not very dificult elevation. Very good!

Good historical accounts and visuals of catastrophic land slide and resulting geological character changes. Short, but informative. Kids would enjoy.

The trail is closed off at many points but it is still possible to get there. It is an easy and beautiful hike along the creek. Take the boat across Jenny Lake and save some of the walking. Then go on up past the falls to lower inspiration point, which again has gorgeous views.

Can someone who has done this hike in June 2017 let us know the snow conditions on the route? Do I need more than crampons? I have only done this wonderful hike in August and want to be prepared as I hope to do it on July 3. Thanks --Jim

Not hard, but very beautiful

The road leading to the trail turns into a very rough dirt road that requires four-wheel drive. Our car couldn't handle it so we had to walk that part to the trailhead. I don't recommend driving the road as it has huge holes, tons of rocks, and big wet areas. The hike is gorgeous and there is a ton of wildlife. We saw a Pika who had made his burrow right off the trail, tons of marmots, and pine marten. The trail is nice and easy to the gorgeous phelps lake lookout, but once you start the canyon it is rough the rest of the way. Cascade Canyon is way easier than this one, but Death Canyon is definitely worth it.
