Fantastic trail. If you don't want to pay for the ferry, you can park at String Lake and hike just 1.7 miles to the trailhead, saving 2.2 miles vs the hike from the Jenny Lake trailhead. once you complete the initial switchbacks which are somewhat strenuous, the remainder of the trail is a gradual climb up the canyon. Even if you can't complete the full trail, don't stop at the trail junction at the top of the switchbacks. One further mile into the canyon opens up views and vistas you don't want to miss. I had the luck to see two moose across the creek and encounter zero bears. Do being bear spray and hike in a group.

Great easy trail for carrying a young kid in a pack or for an aspiring young hiker. Views aren’t totally stunning but isn’t quite as busy as other easily-accessible parts of Grand Teton. Try going at 4 or 5pm for the least busy option.

Took my family on the Delta Lake hike this morning, me, my wife, My son 15 and daughter 11. It was amazing. We started at 840AM and ended back at the lot at 225 PM with an hour spent at Delta Lake. Word to the wise for parents wanting to bring their kids; this is not for non active children. My 15 year old handled it great. My 11 year old struggled with the switchbacks headed up over the first 3 miles. But she was determined to get to the EPIC destination. The first of the Boulder fields is not extremely difficult. The second boulder field does create some challenges. But taking it slow and methodical and follow the cairns is the best bet. The lake is pristine and everything you expect it to be. And COLD. Both my kids came prepared and took the plunge to a round of applause from the other hikers. Only to promptly exit and ask for their towel they brought!

The way down is slick through the boulder fields. Slow and steady.

GPS showed 7.2 miles RT.

Our only regret was that we did not start sooner to spend more time at Delta Lake. You will want to spend time there.

This hike is absolutely incredible. The detour makes the hike more like 14 miles. The view and wildflowers are amazing. Would also recommend swimming in Lake Solitude. We saw 4 moose just on this hike. Its a must.

We absolutely loved this hike! Took us about 5 hours in total, we went just past the fork at the end to picnic a bit closer to the falls. We saw a black bear near the start, and the views throughout this hike were simply unreal... At one point, my 17 yr old son squealed with joy at the views near the creek.. One of the definite highlights of our Grand Teton/ Yellowstone trip, highly recommended! Definitely recommend an early start: we took an 8 am boat crossing, and had the trail mostly to ourselves. On our way back, the trail was PACKED and it was a completely different experience.

We planned to hike this, but access was closed and we would have had to drive an hour to another access point. We hiked Surprise and Amphitheatre instead. Nearby and awesome hike!

A wonderful day hike. Start early to avoid too many hikers. A steep initial climb leads to gentle upward canyon walk. Most often you will see moose, pica and lots of wildflowers.
Our family’s favorite hike

I was unprepared for climbing over van sized rocks; too dangerous for me.

One of the most favorite trails in United States. I went there in June. There are many falls beside the canyon generated by melt snow. In the end you can see a beautiful large fall.

Good family day hike but very busy. Lots to see along the trail. I did the hike July 17, 2018 and don't feel the bugs were bad at all. I didn't put on bug spray, just kept a decent pace and they didn't seem to land on me. Some of the reviews suggesting stopping early, but I really think that all of the different landscapes are worth the hike. To stop early is only to spend more time in shops or restaurants and that's not what I'm here for. the end of this trail isn't really a "grand finale" type of finish but beautiful and worth the extra steps to see the cascades at the fork. If you're looking for something spectacular, go on to one of the other trails at the fork.

Beautiful scenery! There were many people about, which meant that we didn’t have to worry about running into any animals, but depending on who you are that might be a good or bad thing. The end was extremely worth it, with the view of the lake against the backdrop of the peaks and the view of the valley behind us. I want to take other people up here sometime, it was gorgeous!

Was closer to 8.5 miles than what this app had. Would highly recommend trekking poles once you start on the unmaintained trail. Took about 5 hours including 45 mins at the lake

Gorgeous trail. We would have gone to solitude trail but we started off bit late and had to catch the shuttle back. There is creek flowing all along and the views are gorgeous! The trail is moderate but most of the elevation is at the beginning after which it is a straight path. We stopped at the fork for the lunch by the flowing stream which was turquoise ! I also did see raspberries growing on near the trail. Loved it. Will do this again !

The trail to Delta is very poorly marked. Not one sign to Delta Lake. You need to know when/where to depart the main trail. (The AllTrails app was very helpful in this regard.). Once off the main trail, the two boulder fields are a bit challenging. On the way up, when you reach the second boulder field, stay to the left. Hiking boots are much better than running shoes in this trail. The lake is stunning with the peak of Grand Teton as a backdrop. On the way down we saw a mother bear and three cubs 20 yards from the trail.

Great hike! Saw a moose in the beginning of the trail up close. Beautiful views. Two black bears ran across the trail toward the upper portion of the trail. Amazing place.

Pretty intense hike, switchbacks seem like they will never stop but the PEAK IS 100% WORTH THE EFFORT! Amazing views, 360°.

I have only seen this type of color in lakes back in Chilean patagonia at the base of Torres . And this lake is more beautiful than that at base of Torres with a easier hiking trail . The last part is steep and full of boulders but if you are slow and steady then you ll be fine .

Well worth your time! My personal favorite hike. My Fitbit calculated 11 miles from the car back to the car. We did go a bit out of the way on the second boulder field, but not too much. This hike is strenuous-you are climbing up, so that is expected, but I wouldn’t call it hard. It wasn’t easy, but it is doable if you take your time. I’m 41 and my husband is 53 and we do not exercise or do cardio. We are absolutely active, but not athletes and we did fine. There is actually a trail through much of the boulder field so stay on that. At the second boulder field there is a cairn to the far left do not go there. Follow the path through the middle. Loved this hike!!

The most beautiful view I have ever seen in Grand Teton NP.

Yes, the last half mile is very strenuous but the reward outpaces the effort. The setting of Delta Lake is right out of a postcard. The water's color is incredible and Grand Teton and Mount Owen frame the lake. Breathtaking!

Beautiful. And apparently, the lake is a hotspot for nudists.

This is a favorite while in the park. The cascades are a nice stop for lunch. Saw grade school aged kids on the trail enjoying themselves. Very busy

Easy loop trail with beautiful views of Phelps Lake. Pretty wild flowers, water falls, and rushing river. We were looking for a quick late afternoon hike and this was perfect for that. 2.5 hours of slow easy walking.

We took the trail to Ampitheater and there was what supposed to be what we thought would be a fork to go to Delta Lake with a sign and clear direction, but no. You're doing switchbacks for awhile before when turning left to continue you can kiiiiiinda see an unmaintained trail going downhill to the right with some fallen trees in the pathway leading up to a boulder field. That's your "Delta sign" so look out for it. It was beyond beautiful and we clocked it around 7.5 miles.

We went up today and the snow has almost entirely melted. There is only a 15-20 foot stretch that we passed without issue.

Beautiful hike

AllTrails was definitely wrong, my GPS marked it at 8.6 RT. Amazing hike. So worth it. Agree with the steep .5 up and down right at the end.
Even took a dip! It was freezing! Highly recommend this hike, wouldn’t start much later than 10 cause it gets hot!!!!

Absolutely gorgeous! Everything said below is true. I have Sprint and I was also able to track my location throughout the entire hike on the AllTrails app without downloading it. Very helpful. Tough hike but 10000% worth it for that gorgeous view at the top
