I did this hike last summer for our family reunion. I had all my little ones with me and they had a hard time lucky I had people there to help my kids up the trail. the falls are so beautiful. great views. definitely going back when the kids are a little older.

Did this as an overnight with a couple of friends in 2014. Slept like a brick in the saddle even though it was windy as hell and our tent almost blew over, and then summited in the morning. My first peak over 10,000 ft! The scramble was really exciting, but not too difficult. There was still snowpack in late September. It was absolutely beautiful in the valleys, with flowing creeks and abundant wildlife.

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that I was here in mid-October. Visited for a weekend to escape busy college life, and this was our first hike in the park. Very few people, which was a big plus. Falls were beautiful and already party freezing. On our way back, we went the rest of the way around the lake, not realizing how much longer it would take. Still enjoyable and recommend the hike to any visitor.

Great views.Climbed twice and doesn't require much more than good physical condition to climb 6,000 feet in a day

Beautiful hike. I did it in about 8 hours round trip. Once you get to the Garnet Canyon, the trail gets real steep and technical. A quarter mile from the lower saddle, there's an incredibly scary rope to climb, but it's definitely manageable. Overall a great hike. Also, I would say it's probably more like 14 miles.

Perfect introduction hike to this beautiful National park. Not super hard gets really hot in the summer but worth every step.

Did this trail for the total eclipse 8/21/17. Incredible!

We did this on our way to Cascade Canyon and I highly recommend going in the spring, when the falls are really going!

Did with my two daughters (6, 3) and my wife, we really enjoyed this trail. Great views pretty much most of the way. Some places along the way to stop and eat/ enjoy the views. Falls were beautiful and we continued up to lower inspiration point (the higher one was closed). On the way back we sat by moose ponds for a bit and enjoyed the stillness. Great time!

Beautiful views through the whole hike. We hiked all the way to the top and my polar says it was a total of 6.5 miles from parking lot and back. Took my mom who doesn't hike much and she made it the entire way. Lots of places to stop and take breaks. Definitely a must do!

We took the shuttle to shorten this trail with others at the end of August. We ran into a few people who had hiked the full way to the falls and they said it was very tough and would be taking the shuttle back. Anyway the views here were beautiful. The trail is VERY heavily trafficked. This is not the trail to go on if you want to be away from people. However it is heavily trafficked for a reason. There are amazing views of the mountains and of the falls.

Tough hike for people from the flatlands. Steady ascent all the way into the canyon and lower basin. The boulder field was an exciting/challenging change. A few wildflowers left in the canyon at the base of the lower saddle. Dramatic views, but did not see much wildlife, cascade canyon better for animals.

Fun hike. We took the boat and hiked back. Also included a hike to Inspiration Point. Beautiful scenery.

This is a wonderful hike, with the elevation change you need to catch sweeping views of Teton Valley, Taggart, and Bradley lakes. As you climb higher the switch backs are pretty tiring, but the effort is worth it as you enter Garnet Canyon and the peaks rise around you. Climbing over the boulder field is fun, but if you're not looking to extend your trek, picnic at the little creek and enjoy the view! It took me, my mom, and sister about 6 hours with a lengthy lunch break, and we got an amazing, if small, glimpse into what the Tetons have to offer.

Multiple hikes on Jenny Lake - Hidden Falls, Lower Falls, Inspiration Point, and trail around part of lake. Purchase a round trip or one-way boat crossing to get to the far side of the lake. Begin with Hidden Falls trails, then continue to Lower Falls or Inspiration Point (the trails have common points). Return to the boat dock to cross back across the Lake. Up for more walking, continue the lake trail around the lake, which will end where you first caught the boat to cross the lake.

Hiked this yesterday. It was a gorgeous hike with stunning views! I would definitely do it again. We saw a moose and almost ran into a baby and mama bear, so carry bear spray and hike in a group! 4 stars because the falls were outrageously crowded with people coming in from the boats. The trail was fairly crowded as well on our way back. Come early!

Great hike!

Parking was the first big inconvenience, get there early if you don't want to scream at anyone who doesn't know how to walk when there is traffic. The hike itself was pretty easy with great views of the lake and land. The trail was fairly empty, not too much foot traffic. But once at the falls, everyone who took the boat over is there and it's pretty crowded. The hike back is a breeze.

Worth doing if you get there early enough.

Took the "easy" way over on the boat and hiked up the short half mile to the falls. It is beautiful and shouldn't be missed if you're doing Cascade Canyon!

My husband did a summit climb of Grand Teton three years ago, and since we were back in the area, he wanted to show me some of the trail he took for that climb. We actually went a little further than the waterfall, across the boulders and into what he called the Meadows. The weather was cloudy and cool; we got rained on a time or two. I made it just fine on the trail, but the boulder climb was challenging for me (as a clumsy person). We also encountered two bears near the beginning of the trail, a young grizzly and a black bear, who were too intent on eating blueberries to pay any attention to us. We chose to slip around them, both because all the other people on the trail were doing it and because we had bear spray. Great way to spend a day, and I'm happy my husband got to reminisce about his summit experience.

Took the boat ride across the lake so that cut out a huge chunk of the hike but what we did was amazing!! I did it with my 6 kids ages 8 y/o down to carrying a 4 m/o. It's steep but doable even for my 2 y/o. Lots of shade and places to rest. Stopped a lot to take in the views. It was stunning!

Amazing views and cool waterfall. We went up to lower inspiration point which was about 0.5 miles further. Saw a black bear and cub next to the path so beware. No problem for my 3.5 and 5 year olds.

I highly recommend doing the 2.5 hike out there. It's very scenic and great trails. It gets much more crowded along where the boat drops off. We ended up taking the shuttle back just for time saving. The boat was very quick. We didn't know if we were going to do it this way but glad we did and you pay when you get off the boat at the trail head.

Be ready for the falls to be crowded and any time you're trying to have to view them and take it all in,
to be interrupted by someone asking you to take their picture.

The best! The most majestic peak you will see. We got tot he summit too! The first 2/3 is tough hike/scramble/snow and ice traverse. A lot of the final third up the grand is technical. Great guides wade and Collin from Jackson hole mountain guides.

Absolutely amazing. The boulder outcropping vista over Jenny Lake is one of the best views in the country. And then the falls themselves are massive and incredibly powerful. Heavy traffic as of 7/17 due to the Jenny Lake loop being closed for rehabilitation.

Fun trail with beautiful views! Very rewarding. We saw a bear on the trail towards the beginning of our route and had to wait it out! Start early to avoid crowds

Pretty popular and crowded trail, so arrive early. Saw a bear off the trail a little ways.
