First time on trail. Was exploring trail and only skied up to creek crossing about 4 miles +-. Wishing there were miles signage on trails, didn’t see any. Beautiful winter ski trail slight elevation gain on section o skied. Seems that Coal Creek would be a better trail to access upper moose creek.

Tough trail to review since it has so much diversity. First, the moderate rating must come from averaging the out and back. I would say the 9.3 out is difficult, while the 9.3 mile back is pretty easy, mainly due to the 3200 feet elevation gain and loss. The lake itself isn’t all that conducive to camping, I hiked back to a nice spot I had passed about two miles from the lake There are lots of water crossings as of mid July so plan on getting your feet wet. Also, the first half of the trail is pretty overgrown, wear long pants if you don’t like plants rubbing your legs. Finally, the second half of the trail is pretty isolated. From miles 4-9 I didn’t see another person out or back. Lots of water sources, lots of pretty scenery, I saw a couple moose and deer.

Lovely hike today, September 18,2019. Only hiked about 6 miles RT. Perfect weather, wooded trail. So nice to hear the creek babbling alongside us the whole way. Will come back and hike further next time.

We did a shortened version of this hike, totaling about 3 miles. We found it to be beautiful and secluded. There is a bridge over a stream about 1.5 miles in. This is a user-friendly trail; I expect that is is not used my many tourists, making it secluded. It is an easy and short drive from the Victor Main Street.

Great overnight hike and camping by Moose Lake. Very scenic lake with trout. The Tetons are not visible from this trail.
