This is an unbelievable hike up into the base of the Grand Tetons via a boat ride across Jenny Lake. This hike will bring you deep into the Teton Mountain Range. This popular hike will start from the shore of the lake and take you up to the 200 foot tall Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point which provides great views out over the National Park. Most people will stop at this point but this guide will take you a little further up into Cascade Canyon where you might spot a moose or two before heading back for the boat return across Jenny Lake.

Love this hike! 3rd time (2001, 2009, 2017), Incredible beauty, diversity & wildlife. Hikes don't get much better than this.This year (2017) Lake Solitude was still mostly ice covered & surrounded by snow in late July. Wow!

Really enjoyed the views of the peaks, waterfalls, and creek! Not a lot of elevation gain, but you get a lot for the distance travelled. Did a side trail to Hidden Falls too, adds about an extra mile. Love the Tetons!

The main trail was closed to a point, but the horse trail allowed us access about one mile up. It was lovely and we saw a moose and my husbands old boss surprisingly.
