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!

Gorgeous views of the Tetons, cool post-fire regrowth area. Nice hike although it was pretty busy when I was there.

I liked this hike! VERY crowded though, & under construction. this hike kicked my butt even though it's rated as easy. it was very pretty but I was glad when it was over!! take a lot of water bc it's dry as hell and you'll need it. Inspiration point and the falls were nice, would've been better without the major crowding but overall enjoyable. we hurried & this took about 5 hours.
