Good hike with awesome views. Fairly long for someone from Iowa but we did it and it was great! Able to go up to inspiration point and see the waterfall so that was a great touch. Pretty crowded at some points. Would recommend starting over by string lake/Jenny lake lodge. Easier to park and less populated on that side.

Beautiful hike. One of my favorites that we did when visiting the Tetons. Started around 8am and were able to find plenty of parking at the trailhead. We mostly stayed on this trail, except took a short detour toward cascade canyon trail for a bit before descending back down toward inspiration point. This hike offered gorgeous views of the lake and surround. Even though this was listed as being moderately trafficked, we didn’t see anyone until we reached cascade canyon trail. Plenty of shade throughout the hike.

Gorgeous hike! We went all the way to Inspiration Point and saw two black bears. Rather crowded around the boat dock and further up, but almost no one was walking around the lake, so it was mostly very peaceful.

Great hike. Not excessively difficult.

Great hike. Highly recommend. Would rate moderate if you go to both inspiration point and hidden falls you will do a bit of climbing. Adding on walking all of Jenny loop and you’ve got a good hike in. Lots of amazing views of mountains and lake. Normal rocky spots and a couple narrow steep pathways. All and all do it!

Get to this trail head EARLY! You’ll have the best chance of finding parking and seeing wildlife! We actually started this loop from the Jenny Lake Center and combined it with Moose Ponds trail loop to make it a bit longer (9-10 miles). We saw a young bull moose and a juvenile black bear! Also, the view of the falls is beautiful. This isn’t a great trail to hike IF you want to be secluded, since this is a very popular hike and it can get quite busy.

Great trail with beautiful views! Parking at string lake trailhead is easy, and there is good signage throughout the trail (Plus it’d be difficult to get lost- you just keep the lake to one side of you the entire time!) The trail was very congested with people around the hidden falls area, but the rest of the trail was only mildly trafficked. The Adler Fire area has some great birding as well as some not-at-all-skittish chipmunks and marmots!
