Not for people unless you want to ford Soda Butte Creek in your boots (or snowshoes as my case was) to get to the pedestrian trail. Go down the road to the Soda Butte Creek footbridge if you want an actual hike. However, a lot of people were stopped in this area for wildlife watching. I only saw bison and moose, but supposedly wolf are often spotted there.

I did an abbreviation of this hike - totaled about 5 miles. We went out to the jumping-rock, which was great.

Did this in mid-July and the lake was freezing (not surprising since it’s fed by glacial runoff).

Very nice hike with a great view over the lake from the top. We went in mid-June and the snow was waist-deep near the top. Lots of melt made it very, very muddy so plan accordingly depending time of year. Carry bear pepper spray!

Just do it. It's beautiful, easy and underwater geysers are just plain cool. Plus---the Colors!

I have done this Mystic Falls loop three different times of the summer. Mid-to-late June is the best b/c the snow melt is awesome; the water is roaring; and there are small waterfalls that are very nice that are gone by mid-July and thereafter. Every time I go back to YNP, this hike is a Must. A repeat.

Like much of Yellowstone it feels like another planet, simply amazing.

Great hike and took 9&11 year old. They did fine but it did get steep at times. Great view at top. Bear Spray is recommended. We did not have any encounters but they are common in this trail from what we heard.

Easy hike for family. Was able to see a Mule deer bedded down and even had a Fox run past us on the trail which made the kids love it.

This was the first hike we tools our kids on in the Tetons. They loved it. We didn’t see and wildlife but the views were great

Amazing scenery Tetons are fantastic. Kids loved it

Easy hike with kids and great scenery everywhere. Loved this spot.

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize this was done mid-October. Probably my favorite hike of the trip. Felt a bit longer that we were expecting, but that may have been because we were tired from the day and the temperatures were quickly dropping. Anyways, very quite hike and the view was amazing at the lake. I had never seen a lake so still, and reflection of the mountains on the water was a mirror image. Beautiful spot to visit.

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that this hike was done mid-October. Nice, quite trail with a fair amount of snow. We were warned about bear sightings in the area earlier that morning, but we didn't see any. However, after returning to our car and driving down the road a bit, we did come across a momma bear and two cubs!

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that I was here in mid-October. Visited for a weekend to escape busy college life, and this was our first hike in the park. Very few people, which was a big plus. Falls were beautiful and already party freezing. On our way back, we went the rest of the way around the lake, not realizing how much longer it would take. Still enjoyable and recommend the hike to any visitor.

Well worth the hike will do again

This trail is very nice because it takes you to the top of Yellowstone’s most famous waterfall. Looking down you can truly take in the power of the falls. This path is good for all ages and is very easy. Also if you are in this part of Yellowstone I recommend you go to Artists Point for more great views of the falls.

The view from the southern end of the loop is expansive and very pretty on a clear day.

Absolutely beautiful hike! The lake was gorgeous and there was wild life a plenty from marmots to elk. We were there in June and had a great afternoon hiking.

We got to the trailhead around sunrise, which I recommend, as we were the first ones to summit but passed many people on the way down. With a good push this hike is very rewarding and worth the effort. We saw mule deer and Pika at the top.

this place is magical ....Grand Teton my favorite Mountain place Ive ever visited so far. I need to come back to do some serious hiking!

Beautiful peaceful trail located within the Rockefeller Preserve. I’ve done this trail 3-4x. One note able time was when we turned a corner and a rather large black bear was sitting on the trail eating berries. Definitely recommend...

Hiked this trail yesterday Feb 3 on snowshoes and it was a great time. Many trees block the wind and very peaceful.

Beautiful trail even in January! However, on a brief note about the park -- since it does not explicitly state on the NPS / Devil's Tower website, allow me to answer any questions regarding cycling in the park.

Mountain Bikes on dirt trails = no.
Mountain Bikes on paved trail = no.
Mountain Bikes on the main road = yes.
^^the main road is paved, very narrow to be sharing with cars, plenty of traffic

What a view! Wow... a bunch of stairs! Totally worth the slow stair adventure on the way back up to the trail. Don't worry about having to rest between flights. There are random levels to rest and catch your breath, if need be.

Breathtaking hike. Saw several moose and 2 bears. Be sure to dedicate an entire day to this hike, took us 8 hours.

I did this hike in June of 2016 with my wife. We took the Old Pass Road To Teton Pass Trail back up to our starting trailhead were we started our hike on the Black Canyon Loop Trail.....approximately a 10 mile hike total. Okay hike close to the highway. As previously reviewed, beautiful views below nonetheless.

I did this hike in June of 2016 with my wife and son. My family and I thought this was one of the most beautiful hikes we have ever been on with awe inspiring scenery and views. Unfortunately, we were forced to turn back at the top due to too much snow. We were unable to get to Mirror lake. We will definitely hike this trail again.

Unbelievable. Best trail we were able to hike during our 10 day trip. Absolutely incredible views.

Arrived at Jenny Lake right at 8am to take the ferry, saved several hours of daylight to avoid the loop trail around the lake. I would say almost a necessity to knock out the whole hike in a single day.

Saw about 5 moose along the way.

Must do if you are in the Tetons and are looking to hike.
