Did this hike today. My 4th time!!! It’s as beautiful as ever. Well worth the effort it takes to get there. I would suggest you go very early.

Well maintained trail with a beautiful view of the Grand Teton Mountain over Taggert Lake. Hiked Aug 2018 with the Denton’s.

Beautiful view, but too difficult for me to hike there.

I have hiked this trail three separate times. The beautiful aspens, view of the lake and the Tetons make for a tranquil hike. Very heavily trafficked up until the lake, then moderately trafficked continuing on the loop. We went a few days ago and ran into a black bear. We made noise and ran into the woods. Nice easy hike.

First time hiking this trail and it did not disappoint. The first leg is a nice pace and we saw a bear not too far off the trail which was really cool to watch. Cooled off in the water up top and along the way which was very refreshing. Certainly recommend this trail

We hiked this trail in about 2.25 hours. Nice and steady incline of close to 3000 feet. Will work your lungs! At Amphitheatre Lake we had lunch then spent the next hour climbing the narrow trails and boulders that started at the lake and went further up. SUPER technical. Not recommended unless you're a skilled hiker. We made it to a glacier and turned around. The views up there were unbelievable.

Amphitheater Lake is amazing! Many people went swimming in the cold water. Well maintained trail.

This was a great hike for my wife and infant who i carried. It is a very easy hike with amazing views. No real elevation change and a clear trail. We hiked on Thursday August 9th and was easily able to park in the lot at the trail head at 9am. When we left at 1pm and the lot was insanely busy with many people fighting over our spot as we left. The part of the lake near the parking lot was full of people canoeing and on paddle boards, looked like a regular party cove.
The views are amazing and really peak around the camp sites. We went the full 7miles round trip and felt like we wasted the last few miles.

This was my first time to Grand Teton and I wasn't sure which trail to hike. I was originally looking for a moderate to hard trail but ended up on the Jenny Lake Trail...and LOVED it. You get to see some amazing scenery and the trail is fun at all times.

A great morning hike for my son and I. Hit the trail just before 8 and were done well before 10. Great photo spots for family. Morning reflection of Tetons off lake were incredible. Didn’t see any wildlife other than pika.

Murderous, but worth it. Super gorgeous trail, did this instead of Delta lake at the advice of a park ranger, apparently there’s been 3 search and rescues because of people getting hurt/lost on that trail. Very quiet, peaceful. Make sure you dip your feet in the glacial water!

This was a great trail with a beautiful lake. The only reason I rated it 3 rather than 4 is because I prefer trails with fewer people and this one is HEAVILY trafficked. Going clockwise be prepared for a fairly steep climb up on the backside of the mountain. My 7 year old got a little tired.

Great trail! Started at 8:30 am on a Tuesday in August. Parking was not a problem. Great views throughout the hike. Go in the morning to see the Tetons reflecting in the lake.

Did this hike my first day in GTNP. Beautiful lakes

I really enjoyed the hike to Bearpaw and Trapper Lake. It starts along String Lake, follows the shore of Leigh Lake, loops around Bear Paw and ends at Trapper Lake. The majority of the hike is very level and especially along Leigh and String Lakes, the trails are well maintained.

Once you get to Bear Paw, you will get a few minor hills and rockier paths. It still isn’t a hard hike, but it isn’t flat either.

The thing that is nice about this particular hike, aside from the stunning lake and mountain views, is the different types of landscapes. You get a small burn area, flower filled meadows, thick forests, lakeside beaches, and Mountains all in a few miles.

There is also tons of wildlife. Birds are everywhere. I saw a black bear quite close to the trail. There are beaver dams at Trapper Lake. Marmots hide in the rocks. Deer can be found grazing in the meadow.

Would definitely recommend this hike to anyone looking for a longer, but easy hike. Just make sure to bring bear spray!

I enjoyed the Leigh Lake hike. It was very easy with little elevation change, but lots of stunning views. There was also lots of wildlife along the trail. I almost walked into a black bear eating huckleberries on the side of the trail.

The trail is fairly popular and heavily hiked during the hours of 10am-6pm. The farther you hike the less people there are.

Great hike. My wife and I did 7 miles out an back with an 8 and 11 year old. We saw a black bear next to the trail no more than 10 yards away. The canyon is beautiful. The path is somewhat rocky. As mentioned by others the pain is in the upfront with the ascent to the canyon.

I've driven to the top many times but decided to hike it. Very easy hike for family to do. Lots of bear activity in the area but we didn't see any bear on 8/6/18 on the trail. Late June/ Early July would likely be the best time to take this trail as the wildflowers are outstanding when in bloom. Parked in the Signal Mountain parking lot and walked to the trail head. There is a fork in which you choose either the ponds/lake or ridge line. On the way up, take the ponds first so you can see the view of the Grand Teton and Mt Moran (and the mountain range) while hiking back on the ridge line.

Awesome hike! Unreal place when you get to the top. One of the best day hikes I have done! Hard, but not grueling at all. All different types of ages capable of doing this trail. Mama Black bear and her cubs were 5 yards from me on the trail eating berries. 18 switchbacks, exposed (sunblock), nice views of the lakes!

Great spot for night photos as it’s a short walk down to the water and the reflection of the stars on the water can be seen

I ran/power hiked to Holly Lake and back. This is now perhaps my favorite trail of all time (so far!) - just spectacular! No snow on any parts of the trail or valley really. Very light hiker traffic on 8/4 between 2P and 5P.

Nice hike. Saw a dancing moose across from the bridge.

Saw a beaver and swans late evening here. Great place to take a photo of the Tetons!

Lake and mountains are beautiful and you will get great photos. Bring a lunch and enjoy the scenery.

This loop is beautiful! Sections of the trail provide shade but also amazing views of the lake and peaks. I started at the visitor center and went right (when facing the lake). I used this to get a 5 mile trail run in before meeting friends at the Cascade Canyon Trail close to the boat dock. The section of this trail was fairly easy with only small elevation changes. I highly recommend heading up the Cascade Canyon Trail as the views are great and we saw some wildlife.

Easy hike with great views.

Great out and back. Saw a mother bear and her baby about 2 miles in who were busy eating berries. Waterfall is a nice cap.

Very nice trail that’s outstanding at the top as well as along the way. Went in late July 2018 and snow still covered a couple parts of the trail. Bring walking stick and if you’re really brave, a towel and swimsuit. The waters cold but you deserve the glory once you get there.

Amazing! It was uphill all the way to both lakes so be sure not to forget your walking sticks. We saw a black bear cub in the huckleberries about 10 feet from the trail so keep your eyes and ears open and carry bear spray. Worth the effort for sure!
