This is a great hike if you are at the trailhead by 9AM. Start the hike on the South side because you will hAve better access to view the lake which is where the moose are. We saw 4 moose in the lake. We heard a wolf pack. 3 elk were concerned about the howling wolves and ran almost in front of us for their escape. But by 10:30 AM everything was quiet. Hiked Sept 17.

Left from Jenny Lake Visitor Center to Moose Pond. Saw 2 moose at the pond around noon. Highly recommend returning same path back to visitor ctr as trail is not marked clearly to continue on loop. Saw another moose in trees near foot bridge

I would hike out and back from Jenny Lake instead of doing the whole loop again. We saw two moose at the ponds so it was definitely worth it.

Hiked on 9/18/19 - a few detours for trail restoration where it overlaps with hidden falls. Also went all the way up to hidden falls and we ended right at 9 miles. It's well trafficked and we did see a group of black bears but they meandered on with no issues.

Great hike for all levels. Easy to moderate in difficulty.

Very beautiful but steep and narrow at times. Not for people that don’t like ledges.

Loved these Falls. A little crowded but everyone took their turn taking photos and moved on. Worth the effort. No animals but beautiful views.

This is a great easy to moderate hike with a couple of strenuous uphill areas (for older and less athletic people). But it is very beautiful at every turn. Add to it the Hidden Falls Trail and Inspiration point for more mileage. Well traveled so doesn’t feel isolated. The trail is wide and groomed for most of the route. Worth the effort.

Saw the head of a moose. There were several at the pond according to others, but they were all bedded down.

Meh. Hiked this trail end of July 2019. A lot of hype but I did not think the view was as spectacular as the front facing photo. Most of the time is spent in brush and forest so you don’t get much perspective on he Canyon. Easy hike with great view of the lake in the beginning.

I would recommend this trail if you want a difficult hike with an excellent payoff. It is a steep grade for the last mile, very step and I recommend he use if a hiking pole. He lake at the top is beautiful as are the views. Bring lunch and spend some time enjoying the emerald green lake and the views. If you arrive late you will need to park Dow the gravel road a ways, this will add another mile to your trip. Recommend you start very early in the day.

Really good hike. I chose to go counterclockwise heading north to String Lake from the south Jenny Lake station. Caught great pics of the Tetons with morning sun. Saw a mule deer in the trail. Trail is well defined and fairly easy to hike heading north. Hidden Fall and Inspiration Point are a little bit of a challenge. Not 100% sure about my apps but it showed 8.7 miles for entire loop with a 910 EG.

Great trail. Saw a moose mom and her calf on the first part leading up to Inspiration Point! The second half after inspiration point was lightly traveled with great views of the lake and relatively flat trail. Really enjoyed.

Absolutely loved this hike! There are so many amazing views from so many stopping points that it can be a longer hike with all of the stops. But the highlight was the Mama bear and two cubs that appeared out of the forest 25 feet in front of us! Amazing! Got to see them cross the river and disappear on the other side! What a thrill! Didn’t make it to the waterfall because we ran out of water but will return!!

This hike is amazing! Unfortunately it is starting to become well known. The trail is usually full of people. The trail conditions are tough towards the end where the trail goes off the beaten path. I definitely recommend this hike to experienced hikers.

Great trail, moderate difficulty switchbacks for 2/3 of the way up with great views of the valley. We had two close encounters with black bears, but they were very focused on finding berries. Do not do this trail without bear spray. Multiple people in our group had gps saying it was an 11 mile hike. We went slightly past the lake up on to the ridge, where the view is stunning.

GTNP does an excellent job maintaining the full length of the trail. Several switchbacks on this are justified given the 3000 ft vertical gain over the 4.8 mile length. The views are spectacular all along the way. As mentioned, it is common to have wildlife sightings (grizzly, mule deer, marmot, etc). The lakes are pristine and there are several places to camp. I would totally come up here again.

This is a beautiful hike right now (mid sept). Great colors that will only get better in a few weeks. The waterfall is second behind the beautiful peaks in the background.

Mixed feelings about this trail. My suggestion is to do the North side combined with the Grand View Point cut off. Fairly tough but far from difficult. Then head back the way you came on the north side. There is really nothing attractive about the South side walk other than perhaps continual shade on a hot day. No views just a long walk closed in walk with nothing to see. 4 stars for the out and back option.

well worth drive for a picture. close to airport so easy to do on way out.

Excellent trail !!!

An amazing hike from start to finish. Took my 10 and 11 year old boys and also my 2 year old girl on my pack. It wasn’t easy by was definitely manageable. Saw a buck and a doe with her baby. The views are amazing. A lot of people were on the trail but everyone was respectful. The water was cold but refreshing to get into.

Busy, came from the Hidden Falls Trail. Inspiration point was worth it. Nice day, beautiful weather.

Great hike up. Did the upper loop, lower was closed. No animals. Very crowded at the falls.

I would have been completely lost if I hadn't gone with someone who showed me the way… The carins are so important once you get off the main trail. Saw two bears, tons of deer. No one was there at 5:30. It was awesome. Not ridiculously painful but worth the last climb to the top

Great reward at the end, but a grueling climb. Way too many people without a clue are skidding down steep dirt trails and ripping down pine trees so they can get their killer insta pic at the lake. Falls and injuries are common. The erosion has gotten bad on the unmanaged portion. This is a very difficult hike with bouldering and steep climbs up loose dirt, if you’re not an experienced hiker think twice.
