TEMPORARY CLOSURE 2018: The path to Inspiration Point that connects to the Cascade Canyon trail is currently closed. There will be no through trail from Hidden Falls and Lower Inspiration Point into Cascade Canyon during the summer of 2018. Visitors can still enjoy Lower Inspiration Point during construction. Parking at South Jenny Lake is extremely limited during the 2018 summer season. Plan on arriving early, before 9:00 am, or plan to visit late in the day, after 4:00 pm to have the best chance of finding a parking space. The trail enters the Teton range thru Cascade Canyon, a very popular trail. After taking the South Fork of the Cascade Canyon trail, the canyon opens up. Upon reaching the pass you'll see Schoolhouse Glacier and it's turquoise lake. You also have a FANTASTIC west view of the 3 Tetons.

This is the way to go! But do yourself a favor and come down in a different canyon. Also, if you have the legs, add the little avalanche divide! It's nice. Did this up to granit canyon in a day - doable but lot of walking. And you need to have transport back at the end (I ended up hitchhiking from granite to jenny).
Anyway, the teton crest is THE thing to walk over there. If you have permit for overnigth, even better!

Did this hike to hurricane pass in one day. It took us about 9.5 hours to complete and we were able to catch the shuttle boat both ways and we started at about 7:30 or 8 am. The hike ended up being a little over 20 miles. This trail was very strenuous but worth all of the struggle. The view of the back of the tetons was breathtaking. Saw three moose in Cascade canyon on the way back. There is so much life and an abundance of water on this trail! Amazing hike!!! I will try to top the view for the rest of my life and probably fail. I hope to do it again but maybe make it an overnight next time lol.

One of our death marches. We took the first boat over to save a few miles but missed the last boat back. The hike itself is absolutely beautiful. Lots of up and downs. great hike! bugs were bad and it was windy up on the pass.
