Grand Teton National Park is a United States National Park located in northwestern Wyoming, south of Yellowstone National Park. The park is named after the Grand Teton, which, at 13,770 feet (4,197 m), is the tallest mountain in the Teton Range.The name "Tetons" originally was intended to describe several hills near the town of Arco, Idaho. They were named by a French trapper who thought that they resembled a very specific part of the female body. Many years later the name was mistakenly applied to the mountains of present day Grand Teton National Park due to the poor map-making and map-reading standards of the time.

Great easy trail for carrying a young kid in a pack or for an aspiring young hiker. Views aren’t totally stunning but isn’t quite as busy as other easily-accessible parts of Grand Teton. Try going at 4 or 5pm for the least busy option.

Well maintained trail with a beautiful view of the Grand Teton Mountain over Taggert Lake. Hiked Aug 2018 with the Denton’s.

Beautiful view, but too difficult for me to hike there.

Took my family on the Delta Lake hike this morning, me, my wife, My son 15 and daughter 11. It was amazing. We started at 840AM and ended back at the lot at 225 PM with an hour spent at Delta Lake. Word to the wise for parents wanting to bring their kids; this is not for non active children. My 15 year old handled it great. My 11 year old struggled with the switchbacks headed up over the first 3 miles. But she was determined to get to the EPIC destination. The first of the Boulder fields is not extremely difficult. The second boulder field does create some challenges. But taking it slow and methodical and follow the cairns is the best bet. The lake is pristine and everything you expect it to be. And COLD. Both my kids came prepared and took the plunge to a round of applause from the other hikers. Only to promptly exit and ask for their towel they brought!

The way down is slick through the boulder fields. Slow and steady.

GPS showed 7.2 miles RT.

Our only regret was that we did not start sooner to spend more time at Delta Lake. You will want to spend time there.

The best!

The hike starts a little slow but afer 2-3 miles in really opens up! I recommend climbing past the boulders and continuing up the snow. You will not be disappointed with this one

This hike is absolutely incredible. The detour makes the hike more like 14 miles. The view and wildflowers are amazing. Would also recommend swimming in Lake Solitude. We saw 4 moose just on this hike. Its a must.

We absolutely loved this hike! Took us about 5 hours in total, we went just past the fork at the end to picnic a bit closer to the falls. We saw a black bear near the start, and the views throughout this hike were simply unreal... At one point, my 17 yr old son squealed with joy at the views near the creek.. One of the definite highlights of our Grand Teton/ Yellowstone trip, highly recommended! Definitely recommend an early start: we took an 8 am boat crossing, and had the trail mostly to ourselves. On our way back, the trail was PACKED and it was a completely different experience.

I have hiked this trail three separate times. The beautiful aspens, view of the lake and the Tetons make for a tranquil hike. Very heavily trafficked up until the lake, then moderately trafficked continuing on the loop. We went a few days ago and ran into a black bear. We made noise and ran into the woods. Nice easy hike.

Took this hike up and around to Phelps Lake. Beautiful scenery and the lake was very refreshing when we arrived. Crossed paths with two bears along the way which was very pleasant to watch.

First time hiking this trail and it did not disappoint. The first leg is a nice pace and we saw a bear not too far off the trail which was really cool to watch. Cooled off in the water up top and along the way which was very refreshing. Certainly recommend this trail

We planned to hike this, but access was closed and we would have had to drive an hour to another access point. We hiked Surprise and Amphitheatre instead. Nearby and awesome hike!

We hiked this trail in about 2.25 hours. Nice and steady incline of close to 3000 feet. Will work your lungs! At Amphitheatre Lake we had lunch then spent the next hour climbing the narrow trails and boulders that started at the lake and went further up. SUPER technical. Not recommended unless you're a skilled hiker. We made it to a glacier and turned around. The views up there were unbelievable.

Amphitheater Lake is amazing! Many people went swimming in the cold water. Well maintained trail.

This was a great hike for my wife and infant who i carried. It is a very easy hike with amazing views. No real elevation change and a clear trail. We hiked on Thursday August 9th and was easily able to park in the lot at the trail head at 9am. When we left at 1pm and the lot was insanely busy with many people fighting over our spot as we left. The part of the lake near the parking lot was full of people canoeing and on paddle boards, looked like a regular party cove.
The views are amazing and really peak around the camp sites. We went the full 7miles round trip and felt like we wasted the last few miles.

Hiking is beautiful and moderate. Heard and saw lots of kids wading in the lake Water is pure and clear.

Loved this hike. Saw three moose and then a black bear that came walking toward me on the trail. I just got off the trail and he wandered into the woods. I made it to the Lake in just over 3 hours, spent an hour up at the lake and 3 coming down with wildlife picture time. This hike is rated difficult, but I would rate it moderate because I live at altitude. I think a Difficult rating is accurate if you're coming from low altitude and not accustomed to frequent trail hikes. All in all, it was gorgeous and I recommend it!

This was my first time to Grand Teton and I wasn't sure which trail to hike. I was originally looking for a moderate to hard trail but ended up on the Jenny Lake Trail...and LOVED it. You get to see some amazing scenery and the trail is fun at all times.

A wonderful day hike. Start early to avoid too many hikers. A steep initial climb leads to gentle upward canyon walk. Most often you will see moose, pica and lots of wildflowers.
Our family’s favorite hike

A great morning hike for my son and I. Hit the trail just before 8 and were done well before 10. Great photo spots for family. Morning reflection of Tetons off lake were incredible. Didn’t see any wildlife other than pika.

I was unprepared for climbing over van sized rocks; too dangerous for me.

One of the most favorite trails in United States. I went there in June. There are many falls beside the canyon generated by melt snow. In the end you can see a beautiful large fall.

Murderous, but worth it. Super gorgeous trail, did this instead of Delta lake at the advice of a park ranger, apparently there’s been 3 search and rescues because of people getting hurt/lost on that trail. Very quiet, peaceful. Make sure you dip your feet in the glacial water!

My husband and some friends went out early to hike this trail. We hoped to see wildlife but did not. However, the trail was still great! Nice scenes and pretty forest areas to hike through. Also a feeling of accomplishment to make it to the Teton sign and see Jackson lake. I’d consider this trail moderate and not hard however there are some ups and downs in elevation and we did cross one creek where there was no footbridge. The trail goes on from here to a few other points in the Tetons which I would love to do someday.

This was a great trail with a beautiful lake. The only reason I rated it 3 rather than 4 is because I prefer trails with fewer people and this one is HEAVILY trafficked. Going clockwise be prepared for a fairly steep climb up on the backside of the mountain. My 7 year old got a little tired.

Great trail! Started at 8:30 am on a Tuesday in August. Parking was not a problem. Great views throughout the hike. Go in the morning to see the Tetons reflecting in the lake.
