One of the best hikes I have ever done. Absolutely breathtaking views the entire way around. We spotted some bears ob the trail ahead of us as well.

We did this as a long day hike in the clockwise direction in July, and the downhill section immediately after the divide was still pretty snowy. We slowly stepped our way down without crampons or anything but it was definitely a little sketchy. Patches of snow after that but nothing we couldn't manage.

Once we left Hidden Falls (Sunday afternoon) the amount of people on the trail dropped away significantly, and after 1 1/2 miles saw no one until the first campsite. We camped in the second. Hiked to Phelps Lake the second day. Unbelievably beautiful. The view from the Hurricane Pass looking ESE was one that will remain with me. I consider myself to be lucky to have been there in that moment. It started snowing at Sunset Lake. We were behind schedule, and had intermittent snowfall all the way to the Static Pass. Going down into Death Canyon was glorious in the afternoon sun after the cold, snow, and wind we had just been through. Camped at Phelps Lake. I was grateful for the flatness the majority of the way to the intersection with the Amphitheater Lake Trail the next day. Saw a black bear just off the trail first thing in the morning hiking back up to the main trail from our campsite.The hike up to Amphitheater and Sunset Lakes was a good workout. It was just below freezing when we got in about 4pm and there was snow on the ground. The water in my bottle was partially frozen the next morning. It was all down hill and flat back to Jenny Lake.

Great hike suitable for the family.

Very icy conditions with considerable snowfall covering the large boulders. Mentally and physically challenging! Make it to the top and you’ll be greeted with a spectacular view.

Awesome scenery

Nice short easy hike toward hermitage point but turned off to herron pond and swan lake. Saw several swans in swan lake. Beautiful view of the mountains initially

Great longer hike around the lake. We started near the jenny lake overlook and went to the right (looking at the lake). We were the only people in the trail until the intersection trailhead. Continued into hidden falls as a nice side trip before finishing the loop. Went past moose pond, did not see any moose or wildlife. It was snowing dueing our hike so the view of the mountains wasnt good, however the snow was pretty.

very well maintained trail with a lot of spectacular scenery to photograph.

After doing shorter hikes in Yellowstone we decided to push ourselves to do something longer than 2 miles. So glad we did. Beautiful views of the lake and the mountains.

Beautiful trail past String Lake and Leigh Lake. You can get some nice photos of the mountains reflected in the lakes. Gorgeous, clear water. Very flat trail, so great for a recovery hike if you’ve done something challenging the prior day. Ice starting to form on the lakes. Hiked Oct 15.

Hiked this Oct 14. Snow at Patrol Cabin and into the canyon. Tough hike if you are just acclimating to the elevation-it’s a long, uphill trek to the cabin from Phelps Lake. We did go into the canyon a bit, but there was about 6” of snow so we didn’t go too far. The switchbacks are not super steep, just constant uphill for a while. Beautiful scenery, although most of the aspens had lost their leaves.

Incredible payoff at the end. Easily one of my top 3 hikes ever.

First time hiking in US national park, we are from Hong Kong and in a group of 4. A bit worried at first Becoz it is a bear zone area and we bought a can of bear spray. The park ranger/ guide at Jenny lake was very helpful showing us how to use it and even changed ours (we lost safety lock) with another can for us. It was a very good hike except we had to catch our breath a lot as we live at coastline, altitude is an issue but not a big one - just hike slowly

But the view is worth it. Ranger suggested us doing cascade trail first then we did hidden fall and lower inspiration point (since we couldn’t pass through hidden fall to cascade trail).

It was end of Sep, we took the 1st ferry at 10am then started hiking at 10.30am. We didn’t finish the whole trail, we just walked 1/4 and walked back and went to hidden fall and lower inspiration. I guess total we walked 7km. We just took our time and enjoyed taking the picture and the view.
Able to see a few mooses at Cascade Trail, but didn’t bump into any bear. We saw bear footprint (not 100% sure but it looked v much it was) when we hike up the cascade trail - we were the 1st group on that day. Lucky 4-6 of other hikers followed the same route as we got off the boat

We didn’t drink a lot of water as weather is very cool when we hiked, some sunshine but I still find it cold
To me it is not very hard - just hiked slowly. It is a bit steep at first but after that there is wide open nice view

Started at lake Taggart. Hiked this the first day of our Tetons and Yellowstone trip. I live in Houston so would have been a good idea to do a warm hike. The hike felt murderous. The altitude really got me. Great views and a nice challenging hike though. Will definitely do it again, this time after a warm up hike

Skipped the boat and hiked around Jenny lake, down to the boat dock (the trail through inspiration point was closed) then hiked up to hidden point and into the canyon. Great views and a fairly easy hike once you get into the canyon. Saw moose and supposedly missed a mama grizzly and two cubs ( good and bad.) by like a minute. Hiked to the trails fork, had lunch and turned around. I had a nasty blister so it took me longer than my typical hiking speed. Saw quite a few trail runners on the trail. Would do this hike again and try add lake solitude.

We started out on this trail at 8:30 am and took us 4 1/2 hours to do the entire 7 miles with many stops. Beautiful views and beautiful trail. Topography changes and make the hike interesting Take bear spray for safety. Views of Taggart lake are better than Bradley lake. The Tetons are Gorgeous on this hike

Traveled on 10/12/18. Trails were pretty moderate until the boulder fields. Boulders were covered with several inches of snow which made it even more challenging. Cairns were extremely helpful in guiding. We were the first to travel this morning, so we actually followed a wolf’s footprints all the way to the top. Views were incredible, would love to try again when the lake is not frozen.

Jenny Lake ferry was not running for the season so yo save over two miles by coming in from String Lake. I would rate this a moderate hike. The highlight of this beautiful hike was a peaceful encounter with a huge moose and his lady friend. A number of hikers around and they knew were there but kept on eating

Very beautiful around the lake!

We did this the week of the total solar eclipse and caught a glimpse of a moose.

Just awesome. Start this hike from the String Lake trailhead (parking area) which technically ads another mile or so, because you have to go around the Jenny Lake loop to get to the Cascade Canyon trailhead.

From the parking area, go left. You’ll see an information station on your left & a bridge on your right. Cross the bridge and stay left at the fork (going right at the fork will start the String Lake loop). You’ll see the gorgeous views of Jenny lake on your left, and eventually come to the Cascade Cayon trailhead, among the others like Hidden Falls. Go right, and the trail begins. Awesome the whole way.

My wife and I are beginners, and we got to the end of this trail in 3h 20m with excessive stopping for pictures. Made it back to parking area in about 2 hours booking it to beat the sunset. No bears, but we saw 4 moose!

Our group did this hike on 10-5-18 right after an early snowfall. The first half of the trail was easy going, but as we approached the first large tree fall and entered the boulder fields, the ground became very muddy. While it was a little slow going through the boulders, the most difficult part was climbing the muddy trail at the end toward the lake. I highly recommend yak tracks and trekking poles to navigate this section if hiking in similar conditions. I’m not sure I’d attempt this hike with any more snowfall unless footwear is designed for the ice, mud, and/or snow. With that said, the lake was absolutely glorious and breathtaking. It was worth every step up and back to see it. It’s cold at the top, so bring layers to allow an enjoyable stay.

Fabulous hike with two extraordinary lakes. Just before we crossed the bridge back towards the parking area, a mama bear and three cubs came up the trail. We backed up to give her room, she came up a little our way to make sure we stayed back, and then they all crossed over into the woods. Even on a very busy Saturday stay cautious!

Beautiful spot for sunrise photos. We saw a herd of Elk swim through and cross the river

It had snowed the day before and the area just below the aerial tram was icy and cold. As soon as you drop off the ridge conditions improved. We were walking in 4-7 inches of snow so did not go right into Cascade Canyon but we got tremendous views in a winter wonderland
