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.

Amazing views. We took the shuttle boat to Jenny Lake, which cuts off about 2.4 miles, but we still ended up hiking 10 miles in all (5 to reach a point in cascade canyon trail and 5 back). The first mile is steep but it levels out and it is just a lot of walking. But the views along the way get better and better and it’s worth every step! The section with the white granite boulders and wildflowers was my favorite, I could not stop taking pictures. Highly recommend this hike.

We took the ferry and then hiked all the way to where it ends. It was absolutely gorgeous! We saw three bull moose munching on plants by the river! This trail will probably be a bit strenuous for the inexperienced hiker, mainly due to the length and incline at the beginning.

We took the boat across Jenny Lake then hiked up to Cascade Canyon (9/5/17). The first mile is straight up and strenuous but then easy hike thru the canyon. Gorgeous view of the Tetons and so much wildlife! Encountered 4 moose, two about five feet off the trail! Only downfall is the trail is very crowded to and from the boat dock.

The best hike in the Tetons! A great place to see moose and enjoy the beauty of the Tetons. Absolutely go all the way to Lake Solitude - it's worth the extra effort. Be smart and pack a change of clothes so you can go for a swim.

Beautiful hike! Like the reviews mentioned, 1st mile is steep, but rest of the hike fairly flat and easy. Plenty to see as you hike along the stream. We saw two Moose! Weather was beautiful in early September. Lots of people on the trail.
