Hiked the summer trail in the snow. The last mile stretch was the most challenging but worth it for the views at the top.

Coming back on Cache Creek trail/road make a bit shorter loop with views of the mountains.

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.

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.

Trail is great, uphill for the first half at least, but beautiful enough to distract you. The lake is beautiful as is the rest of the hike up towards the peak. I did not make it to the peak but my friends did. (The altitude slows me down, and my friends are much fitter than I am) The road requires a four wheel drive with high clearance and you need to NOT care that the sides of your car will get scratched up. As a result of how far out this trail head it, it is never crowded. You’ll see other people but most of the time you’ll have solitude. Another positive, dogs allowed and they can swim in Goodwin Lake.

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!

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

After hiking the steep trail, you will see an amazing view of the Jackson town for reward.

I went up the Snow King Summit trail and down the Sink or Swim trail to make a loop. Great hike but I think I would have preferred the opposite direction (starting up Sink or Swim and down the summit trail). Either way, great views. Lotsa wild flowers. And you can take the chairlift down for $5 if your trip up was enough. It took about 45 minutes up the summit trail at a pretty fast pace.

Fun and quick workout.

Nice single track, but it’s narrow in spots with the wildflowers and brush. Wear pants or prepare for some light scratches. Tons of wildflowers and scenic views!

made it to the trail split and then some bad looking weather scared us. this trail is beautiful, especially all the flowers in the beginning. WARNING: getting to the trailhead is a bit difficult without 4 wheel drive or high clearance vehicle. We parked about 1 mile away and walked up the road. Hopefully will do this trail again later and make it to the top.

Hiked this June 30, 2018–beautiful wildflowers but still a decent amount of snow to get to the summit. Still doable but it slowed us down! Definitely a favorite hike.

Great at times somewhat steep hike for a nice little quick workout and spectacular / best views!

I did this trail on a whim. There is a straight shot option but my buddy and I chose the switchbacks. It’s a tough hike but the views you catch on the way up are well worth the heavy breathing. Not too much snow last week when we tackled it. We’re going again in the morning because it’s a fun challenge. I saw some old ladies doing it so I’m not sure this is “hard” but it’s definitely not easy.

Great hike but I just want to update about the road getting there---it is in rough shape as of May 2018. A lot of the info online about the road is outdated. Forest service even has a sign at one point after you pass Curtis Campground with a warning, even with 4WD.. I ended up parking and hiking on part of the road quite a way to get to the trailhead only because I was there so I could bring the dog.... Great hike if you get there but the road is currently an issue.

Very fun trial. Pretty strenuous if you aren’t used to the altitude. The views along the trail are better than the view at the top. There is a ski lift at the top that can take you back down if you only want to hike up. Took 1 hour to reach the top.

Beautiful wildflowers and scenery

Great hike.

New favorite place to disappear and run! So many wildflowers, shady spots along the creek, and the majority of it is perfect for running. A few narrow spots and short inclines, otherwise easy and flat.

My family and I hiked this trail based on some amazing pictures others had posted. Overall, it was a beautiful hike with great views of Jackson. Based on other pictures posted we thought we'd encounter a lake at some point on the trail but 2 miles in all we found was thicker foliage. The trail split about a mile in with no signage to indicate which way to go, maybe we took the wrong path.

The trail that starts off through some beautiful Aspen trees and we had lovely wildflowers on the day we went, it was a pretty easy incline in the beginning, but then it gets steep and you switch back your way up the mountain. Definitely not for anyone out of shape and not able to handle a steep incline, I took my ten year old and thirteen year old and it was tough, but we made it to the top. Great views at the top and along the way of Jackson and the surrounding area.

Great hike with good flow and nice scenery. The first part is a bit steep and narrow, but it flattens out after that. It's great for kids, pets, and the less experienced. With a fast pace it can make for a good cardio workout.

absolutely stunning and well maintained trail. WATCH OUT FOR THE ELK EATING BEARS!!

Can only get to this trailhead with a 4 wheel vehicle the road is carved up by runiff. Got to trailhead early enough (8:45) am that we did not see anyone else until the last bit of the return trip. Beginning is steep through fields and some forest, then mostly moderate forest trails. Could only get to granite lake because of snow. Roundtrip was about 6.2 miles.

I wouldn't do it for the wildlife, but just for the exercise.(and a decent view of Jackson and everything to the north) FYI, if you want to do a seriously tough workout, just hike straight up(with minimal rest) from the lift, and you'll do 1441 feet of elevation gain in .67 miles. It was a fairly torturous 28 minutes for myself..lol. I ran back down in about 18 minutes on the trail mentioned here.
