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.

The first 1.5 miles (thru Lupine) is really nothing to write home about, this all changes once you hit the switchbacks, the views and the valley and lakes below are breathtaking. The last half mile is no joke. Maybe the hardest half mile of climbing I’ve ever done, especially coming back down... but boy was it all worth it. Honestly this hike is not THAT challenging and the incline on the switchbacks aren’t too bad. We did lake Solitude a few days before and found that to be more challenging. Climbing the boulders was fun and gave some reprieve to your legs as you could use your upper body. DEFINITELY stay to the left of the last boulder field and follow the cairns.

Amazing!! stay right upon reaching end of third switchback where the trail veers toward amphitheatre lake trail. all trails app helpful to keep u on point. Our group of mixed hikers easily reached lake in 2 HR 15 min during midday. Moderately hard but the inexperienced in our group had no problem.

decent hike. pretty crowded but not overrun. recommend going clockwise (left) from visitors center if in mixed group that way those who don't want to complete second half (after hidden falls + inspiration point) can take ferry back across. second half past inspiration point will take you well north of the lake to cross the water before hitting the other side of the lake (have to go toward string lake parking lot adds an extra mile even without doing the string lake loop). overall fun hike our group enjoyed.

beautiful, easy hike. mostly level. saw 2 bears, a few moose. ate lunch on the beach past the campsites. huckleberry point is a must. enjoyable hike for all takers.

Wonderful hike on a lovely day. Far from strenuous. Wonderful views of the series of lakes with the Grand Tetons forming a breathtaking backdrop. Wouldn't have missed it for the world. Took me approx four and half hours with plenty of stops. Well worth pushing on to get to the end at Taggart Lake.

Mixed a few of the trails. The path was great. Easy walking

Welcome to switchback central!! Challenging trail, very rocky. Great views of lakes at top. Was a little bit foggy when I arrived up top at 1 pm. There was a good amount of black bear activity, several encounters on trail and up at lakes.

Great hike with fantastic views of both lakes. If you can do a 10 mile moderate hike, then you can do this one.. it’s on the ‘easier’ side of a hard rating.

I did this hike on Sept. 2 2019 and started around 2PM. We went counterclockwise. The hike was ok but what made this hike special was the view of Targgart Lake and the Tetons. Me and my fiancé stopped to have lunch here and dipped our feet in the lake. After lunch we completed the loop. Make sure to stop and look around. We stopped a couple more times and gazed at the Teton range. It was a nice a easy hike.

I did this hike a week ago on September 1st 2019 and started at 8am. It took us about 4.5 hours. We stopped a lot to view wildlife and the amazing views. I enjoyed it very much and I would recommend it as your first hike at the Tetons. We started at the Jenny Lake Visitor Center and went counterclockwise towards Hidden Falls. (You can take a boat shuttle if you are trying to do more hikes afterwards.) Before getting to Hidden Falls we saw two female moose hanging out at the Moose Pond loop.At Hidden Falls we saw a mama bear with two cubs drinking water. We continued towards Inspiration Point and followed Cascade Canyon then String Lake to connect back with the Jenny Lake Trail. We saw a mama mule deer with three does. There was plenty of wildlife on this hike.

We did this as a lark passing through the park on Labor Day. The lower trail is closed for recovery it seems. The hiking traffic is therefore completely diverted to the upper trail and it was crowded. It is on the more moderate side of easy as the base elevation is high. But many families were on the trail and some three generation families succeeded in going the distance. The views of the lake and across the distant meadow are lovely. The Falls were extremely crowded as they can be accessed by a short walk up from the shuttle dock. It was not a serene experience. We took the boat shuttle back just to find a quieter place. This is a nice option for hikers who might not have time to do the out and back (loop not possible now with the lower trail closed).

the trail was nothing special, but the lake is beautiful. Way too crowded to really enjoy it.

Awesome! Ended up being 12.4 miles but I walked along the lakes some. Took 5 hours 50 min with a lunch break and lots of photo breaks. Switchbacks aren’t too bad especially with good weather. Saw mama bear and cub within first 30 steps of the trail!

Amazing trail ! Just total beauty from beginning to end. I didn’t do the boat ride, I just parked at a “boat launch “ trailhead about 1.5 miles away and walked to the canyon. Saw pikas , a deer family , lots of awesome bugs. One of the nicest hikes I’ve done , I smiled the whole way.

Gorgeous! But - once you get to the "end" of this trail where it forks left or right, you MUST continue right on the trail to Solitude Lake because that is by far the best part! The fork is a great place to stop for lunch to fuel you for the next leg of the trail. You don't have to go all the way to Solitude Lake, just get into the canyon because it is so amazingly beautiful. It's quite a haul up the canyon, but completely worth it. Once you get into the canyon you'll see what I mean, and you'll be able to tell once you get to the point where you've seen everything you are going to see, and don't need to continue all the way to Solitude Lake if you're feeling tired (we sure were). Also helpful to note - you can park at Jenny Lake and take the boat shuttle (bring cash) across the lake to cut off a few miles each way. We only took the boat shuttle on the way back because it didn't start running early enough in the morning, but were glad to cut off a few miles on the return.

We LOVED this trail. We were worried about visibility as it rained quite a bit. When we first got to the park, all of the mountains were boxed in with clouds and fog. We waited the rain out a bit, and we are glad we did. The views were lovely, and the hike was relatively easy. We got off track at one point so it took a bit longer, but we highly recommend this trail!

Had so much fun; so rare to find a hike like this that’s so easy but with such high return in the form of beautiful views. Lots of people were swimming in the lake but it was too cold for me. 1 bear sighting in the distance. We went on a Saturday morning and arrived at the trailhead at 10:40 (I know I know, but I *had* to check out a particular French bakery in Jackson first!) We ended waiting til 11:15 to get a parking spot. (NPS rangers were there ensuring order and preventing people from making up parking spots so there really wasn’t any way around the wait at that point). So go early or go late! (We returned to our car around 3pm and there wasn’t a wait anymore). The parking was really the hardest part of this hike. :) good tree cover, I didn’t need sunscreen. No issues with mosquitoes either. Such a magical place.

This trail is beautiful! We did the Lake Creek Trail to the lake, and the Woodland Trail back. I would say this section of the trail was easy, not moderate. We saw a deer and a black bear!

This was easily the most beautiful hike I’ve ever done. The water was amazing, the views of the Tetons were amazing... we didn’t see any bears as other reviews mentioned. We did see some moose at Moose Pond— definitely take the time to veer off the loop trail to the pond (maybe 1 mile).
