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.

FAVORITE TRAIL IN TETONS!!!! Go all the way!

These lakes are incredibly beautiful! And the mountains are unreal!

We did not make it all the way but the views were incredible in the canyon!

Beautiful waterfall!

This trail is amazing, especially cascade canyon. We took 3 days/2 nights to cover 30 miles. Camped outside the national park both nights b/c we didn't have permits. A good amount of elevation change, but totally worth it!

Amazing views. Steep start then a flat, visually stunning hike. This was an all-star hike.

Recently a friend and I planned to hike the Teton Crest Trail. As with any trip to the Tetons, especially during peak season (pretty much Memorial Day to Labor Day), I always suggest having a backup plan or three. Backcountry permits can be especially difficult to attain for top campsites, and so we worked with the rangers to plan a 5 day/4 night trip. Originally planning to go up the north fork of Cascade Canyon and over Paintbrush Divide, a late August snow storm had us rerouting out of Cascade Canyon a day early. Long story short, any outing in the Teton Backcountry is one I enjoy. From forests and steep canyons to alpine tundra, this hike can feel like a different planet every day.
Our Itinerary:
Day 1 - Death Canyon TH to Lower Granite Canyon
Day 2 - Lower Granite to Marion Lake
Day 3 - Marion Lake to Sunset Lake
Day 4 - Sunset Lake to Jenny Lake Shuttle Dock

It was a spectacular hike ❤️. By far my fave.

Trail is impassible without snow shoes and ice picks even in June. If you plan to hike this trail wait until late July August (I found this out the hard way)

Great trail! I hiked it in early June and the traffic was already fairly heavy but the views are worth it. If you slip the fairy ride and take the trail around the lake you will be much more likely to encounter bear and moose as I did as the moose ponds trail is connected to this trail.

Great trail! I hiked the trail in early June and saw mother bear and her cubs as well as a bull moose.

Hiked this trail with my girlfriend on Sept 7th. I am 64 yrs young, but live at sea level (St. Pete,FL)
the first 3-4 miles not so bad, but once you leave the maintained trail it gets much tougher.
That combined with the lack of oxygen made me consider quitting several times. Luckily for me,
my girlfriend is younger and in better hiking shape, so I toughed it out. It was the best pay-off to a hike
that I have ever experienced. The view was spectacular. The sun on the lake and the reflection of the sky made it seem that you were in a painting. As with many places we have been, none of the pictures, as beautiful as they are, can quite hold up to being there. It was very hard to leave.

did the hike 4th of july weekend. amazing hike!! worth the switchbacks and boulder field scramble. the view at the top was amazing. the lake was so cool! take plenty of water! we all depleted our water on the way up and refilled with our filters at the lake. we arrived early but not early enough and had to park further out. about 10 miles up and back to the car. we did see a mom and cub on our way up. they wandered off into the field away from us so definitely bring bear spray, never know!

We loved this hike. Still can’t believe we were there ❤️

I hiked from Jenny lake halfway through the cayon and back with my mother. There was moderate foot traffic until the boat dock. The waterfall, wildflowers, and wildlife were awesome. We stopped by a stream and saw a fox chasing a beaver. Great hike that totaled about 9 miles round-trip.

I don't usually review trails, but this one is pretty great! We went a little later, so it wasn't as busy. But we got to a point in the trail where a moose and her baby were on the trail. We had to wander off the trail but it was an awesome experience. The scenery is also beautiful. It's 4 miles but it's very casual.

Beautiful. May take longer than you think to complete the hike. Route-finding can be difficult in the boulder section and may not be appropriate for children, older folks, or disabled. A stunning annual run for us with access to the Middle/Grand saddle.

Beautiful hike—very good trail for a little sweat and great views.

Was exactly like the descriptions said. We started out around 09:00 and took 5 hours to get to top. I’m very out of shape now days and refused not to give up until we made it. My wife waited on me lots going up but kept me motivated. The views going up and at the top are good enough motivation.

We hiked this trail in order to summit Disappointment Peak. Before beginning the last leg of our summit, I took a refreshing (and frigid) swim in Amphitheater Lake. I believe we counted 18 switchbacks. Both lakes were breathtaking!

Wanted to see wildlife, but the lake was pretty bare. A good hike with small ups and downs. Distances are accurate at 6.1 miles around. There ARE bears around. About 2 miles from the end of the loop (counter clockwise) we saw 2 grizzlies cross the trail from us about 50 feet away (fortunately running away from us). We never made as much noise as in our life for the rest of the loop. Coming back, about 2 miles from the trailhead we saw several cars pulled off from the road. About 200 yards away were two very large male grizzlies eating in the meadows (one on grasses and berries and one actually tearing apart some sort of carcass). Very impressive, but somewhat unsettling knowing that these were so close to the trail. This is bear country so carry your bear spray, but the hike was beautiful with the most impressive trees we had ever seen.

Neat views from the point.

Nice hike- we did it clockwise and enjoyed great views the whole time.

phenomenal hike with great views. This hike leans towards the more difficult side. It took us around 5 and a half hours for the entire trip.
Plan on taking a lot of water or at least water filters to restock on water at the lake itself.

Great hike with breathtaking views. Saw lots of chipmunks but no bears! Had bear spray just in case. My husband and I really enjoyed this hike.

We hiked this 10-20-18 1:20pm - 5:00pm and it was absolutely beautiful. We arrived to Bradley Lake around 3pm and the sun was hitting the lake so beautifully making an awesome reflection on the lake. I would rate the hike as easy and not heavily trafficked this time of the year. We did not see any wild animals. Highly recommended, and we even liked it better than Jenny Lake Hike, although BOTH are BREATHTAKING!

Perfect trail for families. 3.0 miles round trip. Beautiful views and the trail was easy. Highly recommend.

Lovely views above Phelps Lake. Take the time to go beyond Patrol Cabin as the canyon opens out and you get tremendous views. There was a light covering of snow in the Canyon which made it all the more spectacular. The aspens were at their best

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.
