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.

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.
