If you’re looking for a shortish hike with some cardio burn and great views, this is the one for you!

The smoke from forest fires really dampened the views. The trail could have been better marked as there were multiple intersections without any signage. Bring a map or a fully charged cell phone with the map loaded. We saw one antlered beast (deer? elk?) and some signs of bear activity. I would only recommend this hike on a clear day as the trail itself doesn't offer much of interest without the views.

MOST UNDERATED TRAIL IN GRAND TETON!!!! Was a good hike up to the top! Nicknamed little asskicker this trail is short but super steep to the top! Views were expansive and well worth the climb. If you have a little time this one is worth it!
