Beautiful hike, with amazing scenery the entire way! We did this hike as a family of five (kids are 5, 8, 15). The were able to handle it really well, except my 5yo was pretty done for the last mile or so back. We were lucky enough to be some of the first hikers in over a year to be able to hike the lower lake trail back (open as of 10/3). Once we reached the falls, my 15yo and I went the extra .5 mile to Inspiration Point. I would highly recommend!

Loved these Falls. A little crowded but everyone took their turn taking photos and moved on. Worth the effort. No animals but beautiful views.

We did this as a lark passing through the park on Labor Day. The lower trail is closed for recovery it seems. The hiking traffic is therefore completely diverted to the upper trail and it was crowded. It is on the more moderate side of easy as the base elevation is high. But many families were on the trail and some three generation families succeeded in going the distance. The views of the lake and across the distant meadow are lovely. The Falls were extremely crowded as they can be accessed by a short walk up from the shuttle dock. It was not a serene experience. We took the boat shuttle back just to find a quieter place. This is a nice option for hikers who might not have time to do the out and back (loop not possible now with the lower trail closed).

A nice hike in the Tetons, cool waterfall at the end and pretty scenic views on the way there, having the boat option back is always nice even tho the hike itself isn’t long, we did opt for the boat back to catch a lunch reservation and some beers

Wasn’t too hard, we also did all of jenny lake and went up to inspiration point. If you go as far as the falls, you might as well go to inspiration point

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the trail wasn’t as crowded as expected from what I read on previous reviews. (Side note: I am from the city so my perspective on what classified as crowded may be different). The crowds, however, were pretty congested from people taking the ferry straight to the falls. There was a good incline. Only saw horse poop a couple times from the horse tours. I had a 7 year old with me and she really enjoyed it. So I do recommend for kids.

A little more than we expected due to the closure on the lower loop. Beautiful trail, though, and very heavily trafficked. A little scary up top without guardrails and had to keep the littles secure. Our 8 and 12 year old did ok and they were awestruck with the falls!

Beautiful waterfall. Very crowded hike and tough to find parking if you go later in the day. Go early to avoid crowds. Now that the lower trail is closed this is close to a 6 mile out and back hike to the falls.

Le lac est magnifique. Nous avons fait un détour par moose pond et avons vu deux moose et un bébé moose. Nous avons fait le retour par le bateau ( 10$ par personne pour le retour et un bateau toutes les 15mn). Seul bémol : beaucoup de monde mais le lac en vaut la peine .

Nice short hike to a waterfall that is well worth seeing. The lower portion, closer to the lake, is still closed, so this is actually an out-and-back until the other portion reopens. Though the trail goes through wooded areas, much of the trail is in the sun, so bring enough water (or a filter) to avoid being parched on the way back.

Completed this as part of a loop through Cascade Canyon to Lake Solitude and back to the Jenny Lake Visitor Center. We took the boat shuttle from the visitor center to get to the trailhead. It was $10 per person for a one-way ride on the shuttle boat & $18 for round trip. Easy hike to the falls with some incline. Good hike for kids. I recommend getting to the trail by 8/8:30 to avoid the crowds.

I took the Cascade Canyon trail up to Inspiration Point. Didn’t record the ascent, but the trail is very good. It is well marked and not very technical. The hike is about 3.0 miles from the Jenny Lake Trailhead to Inspiration point. The first portion of the trail is paved, and then moves into a flat and wide gravel path. The trail rolls up and down as it circles the lake past the boat dock. You ascend to the high point on this trail before descending to the intersection of the boat dock trail and the canyon trail. You continue about 100 yards to the Hidden Falls, a beautiful but often crowded picture spot. From here, the trail begins a half-mile switch back ascent up to Inspiration Point. I started around 8:45, and the Jenny Lake parking areas were already pretty full, and people were parking up the main road by noon. The hike is not too strenuous, but I would recommend leaving early and bringing proper hiking gear and at least one liter of water.

The trail and waterfall are great..and the views of Jenny Lake are amazing. However, this is the busiest trail in Grand Teton park and that ruins the experience. Hundreds of people crowded this narrow trail. Once you get to the waterfall there are herds of tourists (most took the boat over) pushing and shoving, trying to get a view of the falls.

very busy and pretty trail. if you don't want to pay for the boat you can get there via the Jenny lake or String lake areas.

Did this as part of the canyon cascade hike. Very impressive.

The loop portion is still closed, so it’s roughly a 2.5 mile trail if you do it one-way. Definitely worth it, even with the uphill parts seeming like they never end!
