Started this hike at the bottom of the Granite Canyon trail after hiking down from Rendezvous. This hike would have been nice had it been in April or September when it's too cold for mosquitoes which were more than overwhelming. Not only did the trail between Granite and Teton Village offer little to no views, my group and I were constantly swatting the bugs away from ourselves. The trail also brings you out to the back of Teton Village and meets up with a very steep service road that seems out of place in such a beautiful area.

We had to walk a portion of this trail to reach our car as we had taken the tram up to Rendezvous and hiked down Granite Canyon. We were only on the Valley Trail for 2.5 miles but it was utter hell: no views whatsoever and there had to have been a million mosquitoes. We were swatting them a half dozen at a time and they were relentless. The trail was void of wildlife and we assume the mosquitoes had to have scared them off or consumed any wildlife previously in the area. To be fair, this was the southern portion between Teton Village and Granite Canyon trailhead and can’t speak for all of it.

Started this trail and went to Taggart lake, Bradley lake, and then up towards the amphitheater junction. Beautiful views of the lakes. Started about 9 am and was able to see reflections of the lake and not too busy. Completed 8 miles in about 3.5 hours

From Teton Village you can get this trail from up the Teewinot slope (just turn right towards the Apres Vous lift after passing the Four Seasons and heading up the big hill for a quarter mile). Then follow Valley Trail signs. Took the trail to Phelps Lake and around for a moderate hike. Not a lot of incline, but there were some snow covered trail areas even at the end of May.
