Tough climb, amazing views, incredible wildflowers along the ridge beyond the summit, loose rocks on the way down. Totally worth it!

Great hike, spectacular views and scenery. Parking is on the South side of the road at the top of the pass. Trail starts on the opposite side of the road, no trail markings. Steep zigzagging trail to the top. Trail is slippery on the way down, loose dirt and small rocks.

People aren’t kidding. This trail is STEEP but so WORTH IT. Great southern view of the Tetons at the top.

Rewarding views at the top, aerobic workout on the way up. Took us about 2.5 hours there and back, longer than expected but my family most definitely paced ourselves. A little snow and mud. One thing to note is the higher you go, the steeper it gets. Very fun afternoon hike.

Legit 1 mile of climbing , and 1 mile down. View is cool, it’s definitely a cool spot to power hike up and have lunch and take a view.

Straight up! Straight up fun! It might be the only hike I’ve done where down takes the same amount of time as up. But you are not winded going down.

Probably the single best steep, high-altitude hike that can be done after a workday. Taking me just shy of 45 minutes on the way up and about the same on the way down.

This is a tough, tough hike, but definitely worth the climb for the views at the top. The trailhead is not very well marked, but if you park at the popular pullout spot and look directly behind you from the parking lot, across the road, you can see where the trail starts up the hill.

This trail climbs the peak to the north of Teton Pass. It provides an even better view of the valley, as well as much of the southern Teton Range. The trail is as steep as they get; I fell on it a dozen times on the way back down. The trailhead may not be obvious; look for it across the highway from the parking area. Don't get run over getting there.

This was rough. We did this hike in July and it was a brutal climb. Even worse was the terror of coming down. Bring trekking poles, though, and you'll have a better time of it. Outstanding views of Jackson though.

Agree with all prior reviews, with a few additions for this time of year: did this hike on 10/16, still very doable even with some minimal snow/ice in shaded areas. Quite a bit of mud once you get up higher - would recommend YakTrax or similar. Made coming back down a bit tricky - quite a few slips and oh s**t moments. Gorgeous views of snow-capped peaks from the top. One hour and 5 mins to top, coming from sea level so surely could be done quicker if you’re better acclimated. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a short but challenging hike.

It’s an intense hike. You are walking on a steep incline with many rewarding views and an even more rewarding summit! One of the best hikes I have done. It’s a pretty advanced hikes in terms of elevation gain. Took about two hours to complete.

Definitely a great view at the top. Pretty steep climb but manageable for anyone if you pace yourself.

Hiked it on June 24th and the snow was 99% gone...on the trail that is! Beautiful hike. Somewhat steep, so plan accordingly. At a good pace with several breaks, it takes 2-2.5 hours round trip.

We climbed this mountain may 28th!! We lost the trail due to snow and was almost on all fours do to how steep it was. The view is absolutely stunning but boy was it hard work.

Steep up and precarious down. Great views when it isn't fire season.

What a view. Went early June and it was covered with snow. No snowshoes needed due to snow pac. one of the best views yet. It may take effort and many breaks but it is worth it at the top. Recommended that you bring a sled to to get down fast!

It is uphill and hard for sure! Took us about an hour and a half to get up to the top, but the view was breathtaking! Worth it! I would totally do it again!

This hike is a challenge no doubt- but the view from the top has to be one of the best views I've seen.

This hike is definitely worth the 1.6 miles to the top. It's straight up and not meant for sissys haha. When I went, my friend and his girlfriend gave up a half mile into it at the big rock which is also kind of a nice view. I was a real man and went to the top and ate my lunch up in the clouds (you are nearly 10,000 ft in the air). Great hike. Going to do it again when I find a friend manly enough to go to the top. If you're in the same boat as me, give me a call (208)-709-0804. I'll hike it with ya.

First to Review

I hiked this trail just a couple of weeks ago. It is short, just over a mile to the top, but very steep. Trekking poles are very helpful. It begins at the top of the Teton Pass so you are at a higher elevation when you begin. This is a great hike for training for high elevation mountain hiking. The view to the north from the top is unique in that the Tetons are superimposed on each other. You can pick out the South, Middle and the Grand, if you know those peaks, in the distance from the summit. There were beautiful wildflowers, beautiful views, and there are some interesting huge snorkel like things for avalanche control in Glory Bowl close to the top. I will do it again. It also leads to the Teton Crest Trail which I look forward to exploring another time.
