Great trail! This is also a cattle trail so you may see some wildlife you might not expect! Fun and lots of variation in environment.

Scenic and easy hike

Very nice for all ages. Bring water and lunch. A couple of nice places by the river to rest. Go to the end of the trail.

High end of moderate. For folks already acclimated to the elevation here, I’m sure it’s moderate. For late 40s folks from the Midwest where we live everyday life below 1000 ft, it’s understandably more challenging. Reaching the peak at Fred’s Mt was a great challenge, and the views are truly exhilarating. We stopped there and fueled up on some salted cashews and an energy bar. For me, continuing on from there to the Mary’s Saddle was where things got tough. But the view from the saddle is well worth it. Truly stunning stuff. Bugs were present but not very bad.

Beautiful hike! Unfortunately, Bannon Trail (the main trail up to the peak) was closed today, so we opted to take the chairlift to the summit and continue to Mary’s Saddle on foot. It was incredibly gorgeous scenery with stellar views of the Tetons.

Great hike, beautiful views. you can see the Tetons very clearly from the top. The summit is pretty rocky (some of it loose) heading downward towards Mary's saddle.

Great, easy ride through the forest and meadows. It's hard to tell when the trail ends, though, which is kind of a bummer when you don't have a real destination to turn around at. But it is a nice, short, beautiful trail that is perfect for everyone to enjoy.

Very easy, mostly flat trail. Perfect for beginner hikers or children.

Not sure where they got the 2 mile out and back trail unless they meant two miles out and two miles back. we hiked two miles in and still didn't find the end of the trail. It was a nice easy hike through forests and meadows. Saw some whitetail deer at the beginning of the hike but no other big animals but there were signs of their passage.

This is a nice short trail, on the opposite side of the Jackson side of the Tetons. Great views of the mountains, but the Wyoming side is nicer, in my opinion.

Beautiful resort in a beautiful part of the country. They get mountains of snow here too, so always great skiing over the winter.

Went in July 2014 and paid for a lift ticket and explored the top. Breathtaking, humbling views. Will definitely come back to this hidden gem. Air is pretty thin up there so be advised.

Great ski resort. On a clear day there is a great view of the Tetons.
