I had a great time on this trail with my in-laws wife, and kids. My 7 year old held his own and hiked the majority of the trail. I carried my 3 year old on my shoulders a good majority when her legs got tired. There is really only one big hill which my mother in law had some issues with since she has a bad knee. There was a section covered by ice and snow and fallen trees from an avalanche. Personally I loved it and my wife, my boy, and I handled it with no issues. There were several really good photo opportunities. We saw a few beavers and a marmot near the end. Bring bear spray. Didn’t see any, but saw bear droppings. Really enjoyed it. Can’t wait to come back out here sometime with just wife or a buddy and do some backpacking. I am in awe of the Tetons. They are truly magnificent. We’ve spent a few days in nearby Yellowstone, but the Tetons still have me hooked.

The trail was not worth the effort. Very little views of the lake and of the mountains. Mostly brush and some areas with ice.

Great trail! Our family of 4 (two boys ages 9 and 6) did this trail and it was great! Definitely need a 4 wheel drive to get to the trailhead.

Amazing trail, feels shorter than it is, well maintained trail with a lot of wildlife if go before others.

It's open with no snow! Plenty of people on the trails, many in bikinis for the famous jumping rock. The view is great, especially at the river, but is outshined by the other trails in Teton.

The first four miles of this trail are fantastic and highly recommend, but the last mile or so up the lake is brutal. No idea where the trail is, and the ascent up and down the snow field is not fun. Easy to get lost on the way down, too

Flat trail, nice and easy with beautiful view of Tetons and their reflection on the way. Trail was overgrown in spots and difficult to follow the whole way through. We did have to cross a bit of a creek on some rocks/logs, so water-proof shoes and some balance were helpful here. Final view was the Snake River. It was a bit flooded when we got there (June 3), so we couldn’t see it in its glory. A bit disappointing of a hike, but it was short so no harm done. Some evidence of beavers.

Hoped to have a good view of the snake river & Tetons from the end of the trail, but with recent flooding (as of 6/3/20) it was difficult to get to. The trail is nearly overgrown in patches and we had to go off trail to reach the end. It’s not clear which path to take at two forks due to overgrowth. Very buggy and muddy. If you’re looking for a flat, short hike around the Tetons, I’d recommend a flat loop around Jenny Lake instead of this trail.

There was a detour about half way through and it brought us from 7.7 miles to 8.5. Overall the trail was nice!

Easy trail with scenic view of the two lakes, together with a great view of the mountains. There is very little snow and normal hiking shoes will suffice.

This trail is absolutely NOT moderate. It is by all means a class 4 if you stay on route, and can easily become a class 5 if you don’t. Should not be attempted unprepared or without some mountaineering and ideally rock climbing experience. Bring an ice axe and helmet whether you think you will need them or not. Be careful to stick to the route and know your limits. Final ascent up the east face is extremely steep. All that being said, the views are unreal and completely worth the trip.

It's open!!! Well-marked trail until we encountered a still-melting avalanche about halfway through. Had to skirt around the snow and the fallen trees. Stunning views and smelled of pine
