Hiked moose pond loop early afternoon. Observed/ photoed bull moose feeding in pond. Later thru meadow area,was surprised by and photoed another bull moose emerging from brush. Few mid sept hikers on full loop, most stop at pond and return to hidden falls trail. Meadow trail unmarked can be challenging to follow at times although not far from parking has a remote feeling about it and look of good bear habitat. Very enjoyable hike. Bear spray raises comfort level w this trail.

Easy warm up trail with a preview from the rangers in the Rockefeller Center. Reminds you of the great legacy the family left for the public to enjoy

Definitely moderate trail. But I would totally recommend hitting the moose pond as a bonus. We saw 3 moose on our journey and it was a spectacular falls at the end! Worth the steep grade up and very quick hike out going down hill.

Fantastic trail, with breathtaking vistas, trail challenging enough to be exciting. Love it

The beauty is amazing and I did see a big black bear about 50 yards away.

I’m not sure why they would call this moderate difficulty as it has no vertical movement at all.

The views are a must. Highly recommended.

The view at the lake when you first arrive is spectacular, perhaps the best in the park. Hike around the lake is easy. Total trip from parking lot is 7.5 miles. Moderate for distance, easy otherwise.

If you are going to pass the pass, you should really come down through cascade canyon to make it a loop! Still, a gorgeous day hike

There is so much nicer around there. Do only if limited in how much you can walk.

It's nice, I've done with along with amphitheater and delta lake. But if you feel that's too much, skip this part and only do the lakes!!! They are much nicer

Easy and nice view from the mountains. I'd suggest doing that along with amphitheater and delta lake. Try to be at the lake in the morning to not have the sun in the wrong direction

Better than doing the full lake, but you can take a ferry there and do the canyon instead.

I took my two nieces straight up the slope to the summit without using the switchback trail. We were looking for a decent challenge and were not disappointed.

Easy and scenic!!

Beautiful trail and view of the mountains. Didn't see any moose, but came upon two black bears while on the hike. First one was on the trail as we were descending down the hill towards the pond. After it went away we decided not to continue and went back on the Jenny Lake trail towards the boat dock. We came upon another black bear crossing the trail ahead of us. Thankfully neither bear bothered us. Definitely be aware of bears and make noise! Around the east side of the lake going north is also beautiful view.

We went about to the first pond when we saw a bear on the trail. It didn't bother us and eventually went off the trail.
We didn't feel comfortable moving forward so we turned back on the Jenny Lake Trail towards the boat dock. Along that trail we saw another bear cross the trail about 30 to 40 yards away. Again it didn't bother us. Great experience even if it was short. Definitely be Bear Aware and make noise!

Hiked up this zig zagging trail in late August that goes from 6,250 feet to 7,800 feet in elevation. The views of Jackson hole are phenomenal.
Other activities at the base are rock climbing, mini golf, a Maze, and two rollercoaster type sled rides that are by a park and restaurant. You can also take the ski lift up and down for 5 dollars if you'd rather not hike.

This get five stars mostly for Jump Rock, which was a blast (though the nearby area up the hillside that is used for changing is gross - people crapped up there!). We saw a snake and some mule deer along the path. The views are stupendous. Mostly level and shaded trail.

Amazing trail! Not too many people. Jumping rock adds so much excitement

Absolutely spectacular views the entire hike. Went at the end of August and already had a few inches of snow at Holly Lake. Highly recommend making the effort.

There is ample parking with easy access to the trail. Dogs were prevalent and I was impressed with the owners picking up after them. The path was wide enough for two most of the way up. The plateaus at every major turn made for a good place to catch your breath and take in the impressive views of Jackson and the Tetons. It’s like a 10 incline on your treadmill for 45 minutes. Enjoyed it!

Easy but scenic- good one if you don’t have much time.

Easy trail and pretty falls. I’m giving it 5 stars because I had such an incredible bear sighting!!!

Excellent trail that is relatively easy. Some elevation gain, but it is very gradual. The falls and wildlife are beautiful and you can take the boat across and back if you want to make it a shorter ride. Two black bear sightings were seen on this trail! Very exciting, but keep your distance because these guys did not react at all to seeing humans.

The parking lot is very busy, you need to come early. We missed a sign at the beginning of the trail, but it's a really nice and easy hike. Overlooks on Jenny Lake and Hidden Falls. We spotted an elk, 2 minks and a momma moose with a baby. Awesome!

My first solo hike! Only wildlife I saw was a few chipmunks. Finished the loop in 2.5 hours, so I would rate this trail as easy, not moderate.

We hiked this trail August 16th. We enjoyed it but we would rate it as Easy. We had to add side trails up Death Canyon to get our heart rate up.

Nice little trail. wildflowers are out. The jumping rock is super fun! The water was extremely clear.

It’s a rough one, but the location and views are great if you are staying in DT Jackson!

The hike starts a little slow but afer 2-3 miles in really opens up! I recommend climbing past the boulders and continuing up the snow. You will not be disappointed with this one
