The scenery is unbeatable. We saw a mother and baby moose. If you are in Teton you HAVE to do Jenny Lake and Cascade Canyon trails!

We started at the south lot and went clock wise. If you go counterclockwise you will actually get better views of the mountain while hiking. We had to keep turning around to view them. Part of the trail was closed for reconstruction but they give you an alternate route which is very similar. Saw a bald eagle, no bears.

There was a bit of snow but nothing you can't do in boots.

We hiked around the lake counter clockwise and hit the waterfall. Great hike with sun and snow coming off the peaks. Well maintained Trail affords not having to look down for steps but enables you to take in the great views

Good last day hike before going home. Likely good first day hike if new to high altitudes. Wasn't nearly as crowded as feared day after Labor Day -- except within 1/4 mile of ferry stops. 1/2 mile stretch right from Ranger Station was relatively boring but otherwise quite nice. Start in the direction of Hidden Falls so this stretch is at the end. The hike may be rated Easy but I've been on easier Moderate hikes!

Get there early. Trail is too busy at the boat docks.
Very busy on a Sunday.
