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.

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.

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.

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!

We started at the south lot and went clock wise. If you go counterclockwise you will actually get better views of the mountain while hiking. We had to keep turning around to view them. Part of the trail was closed for reconstruction but they give you an alternate route which is very similar. Saw a bald eagle, no bears.

There was a bit of snow but nothing you can't do in boots.

We hiked around the lake counter clockwise and hit the waterfall. Great hike with sun and snow coming off the peaks. Well maintained Trail affords not having to look down for steps but enables you to take in the great views

Beautiful up and down. Saw a bull moose. Trail varies from smooth to rocky. Hard but worth doing.

We took this trail to the Emma Matilda Lake and back. There was a good bit of snow on the ground, so it was lovely to look at. Unfortunately, the path became less maintained after a point and the trail became confusing and disappeared due to the lack of maintenance or the snow. There are no blazes, so we got a little lost and had to backtrack about a mile or so - thank you, snow tracks, for making that easy! (That’s a first for me; I never get lost, so new respect for those who have.) We did see an eagle and a beautiful male elk. The Emma Matilda was a great spot to meditate for a while, too.
