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 just hiked this beautiful trail on Thursday May 18th. after a few days of snow we were skeptical about how far we could make it up the trail but ended up getting about a mile from the end of the trail before we turned back. the snowy switchbacks were a bit sketchy and we kept slipping. we didnt have yak tracks or poles otherwise we may have made it further. absolutely gorgeous views and a great peaceful hike in the Tetons!

Really mellow trail! Awesome views of Jackson. Definitely a great hike to do to capture this beauty of a place!

Good place to see black bears. They like to come down to the lake.

Did this summer of 2016. This doesn't seem to be heavily trafficked. You leave the main trail and then you have to do some bushwhacking and trail finding, depending on time of year. Depending on how familiar you are with GTNP, I probably wouldn't recommend attempting this without a Topo map app. The lake is beautiful, but remember it will probably be breezy and chilly. We boulder scrambled the final ascent, it was a little sketchy. The lake is worth it...sitting there with the Grand towering over you. Amazing.

Did this hike Sunday morning in early October. Weather was rainy but hike was worth it. Only saw three other people. Lake was really peaceful except for the occasional elk.

Took the shuttle boat across Jenny Lake to be able to shorten hike to Lake Solitude. Hiking through Cascade Canyon is relatively flat, but it gets steeper as you climb to Lake Solitude. Saw one moose in the canyon, and a number of marmots on the way up to and back from the lake.

Did this hike in early September. Views in the canyon were absolutely amazing. One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Temperature/conditions varied quite a bit along the way, so recommend bringing layers.
