My wife and I hiked this trail in July 2017. It is strenuous, but if you are an avid hiker and you only have time to do one hike in the Tetons, DO THIS ONE. When you get to top of the trail, right before you get to Surprise Lake, take a turn off to the left and climb the stack of rocks. It was by far the best view of the trip.

Fantastic view and a great incline with lots of wildlife

Terrific hike with amazing views. Some good elevation changes, deer, but apart from small ground animals, not a lot of wildlife to view. Very crowded with hikers.

Absolutely gorgeous trail! Amazing views of the lake and mountains. Parts of the trail were covered in snow and pretty muddy, but not too bad. We saw plenty of marmots and a moose.

We hiked this trail in May and still had to cross knee high snow along the mountain. The trail was mildly challenging in a couple of areas but beautiful views the entire way.

We started at String Lake trailhead and walked Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls - round trip about 5 miles. Amazing views at the lake and the waterfall ending was breathtaking. Encountered snow but with proper shoes not an issue. Had to be careful in spots but doable. Saw Moose, Elk and plenty of Marmots. Was not too trafficked. Loved the hike ...

Fantastic trail with a lot to see. It is definitely worth it to add on the hidden falls and Inspiration Point too if you feel up to it. this is also a great warm up trail for access to Cascade Canyon.

Did the loop in 2004, amazing backcountry experience

We completed this with the add on to Hidden Falls, May 7 ‘18. We saw a few groups of people but it was all on the south portion as most people turned back after reaching the Falls due to 3’ deep snow in a ton of areas. The hike would likely be super easy if not for the snow and ice. My husband had a difficult time since he’s 300 lbs of shoulders and therefore kept breaking through the snow path. This added a great deal of challenge. Once we got past the Falls, we finished the north half but not before running into Grizzly 399 with her two juvenile cubs. We slowly diverted down to the beach and spoke in hushed monotone until we heard other hikers coming through and joined them to finish the last 2.5 miles. It was our first time coming way to close to a grizzly. We made the crucial mistake of being to quiet and not chatting while hiking since we were pretty tired. We had bear spray and she never charged or bluffed but it’s definitely something this Texan won’t ever forget.

The views are amazing and despite some scary situations, it was an amazing experience.

Gorgeous views of the Grand Teton and by a dancing stream most of the way. We did have to turn back because the snow just got too deep. But we really enjoyed the hike!

Short and very sweet! I think this is one of the most underrated lakes in GTNP. Gorgeous view of the Grand, does not take much time and effort but the payoff is great! My personal favorite time to go to Taggart is in winter. Great snowshoe trail!

In April, the park plows and closes off sections of the park roads for non-motorized use. Many of the side roads to Jenny Lake and other view points, campgrounds and turnouts are also plowed. The weather couldn't have been better this year. And, April 21 was park free fare day, so locals said it was the most crowds they had ever seen. The main park road is relatively flat, but the side roads can have more elevation. Keep in mind that all the buildings including restrooms tend to be closed. We did see one portapotty at the first Jenny Lake pulloff (that was probably there only as they were doing construction there).

Beautiful hike. My husband and I completed last June and there was still snow on the trails.

Relatively easy hike to Beautiful lake. Had it all to myself this morning.

Hiked early in the morning. Beautiful views of the Tetons reflected in the still, quiet lake.

Have used this as an access to the cascade canyon trail. It’s a nice warmup. Beautiful and peaceful early in the morning.

Hiked in the snow. Would be easier with snow shoes. But we had a lot of fun!

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

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.

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.

Camped two nights at jenny lake, did this trail the first day then cascade canyon the next. Two awesome hikes.

Beautiful hike. I did it in about 8 hours round trip. Once you get to the Garnet Canyon, the trail gets real steep and technical. A quarter mile from the lower saddle, there's an incredibly scary rope to climb, but it's definitely manageable. Overall a great hike. Also, I would say it's probably more like 14 miles.

Something about this lake it is soooooooo pretty.

Strenuous hike with a well-earned reward of two lakes and beautiful scenery at the top. We had a real surprise at Surprise Lake when a mama black bear and her two cubs joined us at the lake for their afternoon drink!

The scenery is unbeatable. We saw a mother and baby moose. If you are in Teton you HAVE to do Jenny Lake and Cascade Canyon trails!
