To be honest, I had a mild case of elevation sickness on the last meters but I was a beginner at that time. This trail is stunningly beautiful and highly recommended! Huge pay-off moment, totally worth it!

Tough switchbacks and some steep loose Rocky sections make for a tough climb but the breath taking view at the end makes it all worth it

Definitely a very hard hike, but when at the top the view is well worth it.

This is a trail that everyone should do at least once. Keep in mind, though, that weekend use in the summer is quite heavy, and parking may be difficult if you do not arrive early.

My preferred route is to take the face trail up and down, which gets you up into the views a little faster. The view from the top is exhilarating, in that there's nothing but empty space between you and the Tetons.

Since afternoon thunderstorms are not uncommon in the area, check the weather before you leave, and plan to start early.

We went up AND down the face. You're going straight up like 1/2 the way, then you mellow out in beautiful wild flower meadows, and then it goes straight up again for the home stretch. You start the hike in the trees so it's a bit miserable at first, once you hit the meadows it's awesome and you can actually see table mountain. So it's nice walking towards something you can see versus wondering when you're gonna get there. We went down the face bc the meadows were just that beautiful that I didn't care about the difficulty. But my knees feeeeeelt it. Definitely toughest hike I've ever done, but the most beautiful and rewarding too!

Excellent back view of The Tetons. The first segment goes up a U shaped valley very gradually, once you get up on the ridge the altitude kick in and the struggle is real. This is a step by step hike to the summit at about the 10,000' foot mark but the views of the bowls/Tetons on the other side are amazing. There are sheer drop offs into the bowls at the top and the winds make you squat low at times. Definitely a high consideration if you are in the area and like a solid day hike!!

A long hike with some steep sections, but well worth it! I went up and down the Huckleberry trail instead of the face, camped on the ridge, then summited for the eclipse earlier this week. It felt a bit arduous with backpacks, so I'd like to try it as a day hike. Amazing views of the Tetons up top!

Steep trail but amazing flowers and views. Best spot to camp is on the other side of table mountain on the grassy hill.

Spectacular hike, steep and rugged. Hiked up the face and back down the huckleberry trail. The views of the back of the Grand Teton were beautiful and very different then the normal pictures from the east side. However, this is not for the faint of heart. Definitely for the fit and those who regularly hike steep areas.

Amazing, beautiful hike the whole time. It's a bit rocky, steep and definitely a work out especially if you hike up with a backpack full of overnight gear. I hiked up to the top to watch the solar eclipse and it was a surreal experience. 10/10 would do it again even without the magical eclipse.
