My husband and I just loved this hike! (Well I loved all of it...he loved the view at the top haha) You get to lay eyes on the majority of the lakes in the area with this loop and OMG the view at the top is completely breathtaking! Definitely a climb and the boulder fields were a nice challenge, but totally doable. I agree with others who posted...I would NOT take my dogs on this loop. The boulder scramble is too much for someone with no thumbs lol We did battle with a good bit of smoke from some fires in the area when we did this hike a week and a half ago.

Nice easy hike, a little crowded

A nice short walk.

Great views and a grind of hike! I made a video if anyone is interested in checking it out: https://practicalvagabonds.com/medicine-bow-wyoming/

We completed this as a day hike. It is very flat to the lake the whole way. We had to double check we were at the correct lake because we completed it so quickly. Beautiful streams and forest along the way. I made a video of the hike if anyone is interested: https://practicalvagabonds.com/big-sandy-lake-wyoming/

Beautiful hike! BRING BEAR SPRAY! We were growled at as we switchbacked down the lake. You can read more about it here: https://practicalvagabonds.com/caution-bears-in-the-area/

Excellent views of the Devil’s tower from all sides.

its a good solid hike but its too rocky for me. the lake was stunning and worth it...

I hiked this one to about 1.5 miles past the cabin, through the meadow and into some outstanding forest on September 23, 2018. Fall colors were everywhere!

just completed today. camped in north cascade. did the loop clockwise and highly reccomend it. I think it would be pretty hard the other way if you are backpacking. perfect hike!

Did this hike 2 days ago with my girlfriend. It is challenging, especially if you don’t choose the right path. If you follow the rockpiles, you end up passing the last boulder field on the left side which is steep and sandy, which makes it easy to slip, especially on the way down. I fell once on the way down, no injuries. However, we saw a woman that broke her arm due to tripping on the boulders and a teenage girl whose bear spray went off in her face when tripping. So go straight across the last boulder field, or even better: by bypassing underneath it. Delta lake is truly amazing, the colours are extraordinarily beautiful and it’s only lightly trafficked. The water was frozen on the side, so swimming was not an option for us. We reached the lake after 2.5 hours. Start with this lake and spend a good amount of time at it, before heading to Surprise and Amphitheater. Hiking those 2 lakes is a piece of cake although the switchbacks get rather boring. When you reach those lakes around 4 or 5-ish, most of the people will be gone so you have the lakes to yourself. Don’t bring too much water, a filter will do the job on this hike. On the way down we saw a brown bear eating berries and passing us at a distance of 1 meter which was scary and amazing at the same time. The elevation can be tough, especially if you’re from a flat country like ours (The Netherlands).

Pretty trail...rated Moderate but an easy moderate

Coming from the east coast, this was one of the most spectacular views we have ever seen. Face up, Huckleberry down is the way to go. When you enter the parking lot, the first trailhead is for Huckleberry. Walk a few hundred feet towards South Teton trailhead to get to the trailhead for Face, right next to the outhouse. Bring extra layers for the top, it can get very windy.

road closed middle end of September

Best place ever

I have been wanting to hike this for a few years now. It was well worth it. Great view of the Tetons.

Most incredible hike I’ve been on. It has everything. We went in July and there was still snow on part of the trail so missed some switch backs on a steep part but still made it. I got altitude sickness around 9-10k feet but didn’t figure that out until we got back down to 8k. Came across a family of moose and we elected to go back through the valley, same way we went up. We lost the trail a few times due to the snow. Take plenty of water and give yourself time to acclimate to the altitude if possible. I was useless toward the top. Great close up view of Grand Tetons on the table top. Beavers seemed to be following us... maybe some people feed them. Start early, take bear spray, food and water and a good app like this one.

perfect location nice hot water

Titcomb basin at the end of this trail is one of my favorite areas in the Bridger Wilderness. Nice views along the way. It's a great place to spend a few days exploring or fishing

Been up and down this trail 7 or 8 times over the years. Photographers point is always a great rest stop.

excellent, challenging hike with amazing views. one of the best

We saw no wildlife, other than a grouse, but it was nice with lots of ups and downs, after the initial relatively steep climb. Mostly shaded forest, other than the last mile out on the open hillside, with the view of Gardiner, WY. The reflection of the trees and hills in the largest pond was beautiful.

Very confusing if you opt for the right hand fork labeled "observation " (?) or lookout. We didn't find the main trail after that until wandering around in mucky marsh around Swan Lake, and found a marker by accident. Otherwise, very flat and easy, as well as boring, trail.

We'd rate this as EASY to moderate, but we didn't make it all the way to the falls (limited time had us turn around at the last bridge over the creek). Good shade even in early afternoon - At least 50% of the distance. Really nice to hear the stream running along the whole way.

Starts with a pleasant walk through a forest by the canyon, with a couple of nice lookout points. The trail really starts to shine 2-3 miles in once you start your descent into the canyon. Great views, lots of waterfalls and hot springs. You eventually make your way down to the river itself, before a tough hike back up to where you came from. We had a close encounter with a black bear on the way back quite close to the trailhead, so be prepared!

An absolutely amazing hike. We did this over 4 days / 3 nights, starting at the top of Rendezvous Mountain and camping on the Death Canyon Shelf, South Fork of Cascade Canyon and Lower Paintbrush. Some of the ascents are challenging, but the views are unparalleled.

Hubby dog and I hiked most of this today. We actually cut across the lower part of Aspen Trails loop. Still got in almost 5 miles. Was able to pick up 2 geocaches along the way. The air was pretty thick with smoke. Make sure to pack plenty of water for you and your pooches. Not really much fresh water this time of year. Did not see any large wildlife, only a few squirrels. Great hike!
