There was a bear warning at the start of the trail so I decided to cut it short

HikingGreat!

Fantastic hike with breathtaking views. Early starts are best as paintbrush divide can get gusty, especially in the afternoon. There's about 30 feet of light snowpack you have to cross on the paintbrush side heading up to the divide, I did it in runners and trekking poles no problem on 9/25/20. Once you hit solitude lake be prepared for more foot traffic.

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

Definitely the most beautiful hike I have ever done but definitely the hardest. My wife and I did it counter-clockwise and I think that is the way to go for light, views, and difficulty. If you are scared of heights like my wife is then the section climbing to the top of the divide will be pretty sketchy for you in parts. The top of the divide is also incredibly windy. We saw a few moose and pika in Cascade. I highly recommend this hike but only if you know you can handle the distance. My recording had it at 23.5 miles. I think it would be best enjoyed as a backpacking trip.

Hiking

Amazing hike with beautiful views! My bf and I completed this hike today, hiking CCW starting from string lake trailhead. I agree with other reviews that this is the best way; however, we saw a ton of people going the opposite way, including those with really full packs, so it’s definitely doable. The only comment to add is that it was crazy crazy windy as you reach paintbrush divide. The wind was strong enough to push you over if you didn’t have proper footing, and to take anything you weren’t clutching tightly onto. P.s. saw a few moose! P.p.s recording unfortunately cut out for a bit in the middle

Walking

Not really sure why there’s so much hype about this trail. The view at Hermitage Point was good but it’s a loooong walk through the forest to get there and back which to us didn’t seem worth it.

BackpackingGreat!

Absolutely beautiful views of the west side of the Tetons. Beautiful descent down into the canyon from hurricane pass. Great camping spot right at the very end of the camping zone.

Hermitage Point offered good views but the hike back, specifically to Swan Lake is kinda a drag. Would recommend the quicker in and out

BackpackingGreat!Rocky

My husband and I hiked this trail counter clockwise over two days. We started at String Lake around 7:30am, took Leigh Lake trail to Paintbrush and made it to Holly Lake by noon and camped for the night. This direction is more steep uphill but felt that it would be better on his knees and the views are amazing. The second day we hiked up to the divide. I was not prepared for this. I have a terrible fear of heights and parts of this with a 30# pack we’re quite a bit for me to over come but with the help of my husband I didn’t die! Coming down the backside of the divide into Cascade is long and steep but nothing like the Paintbrush side. I couldn’t not have completed this hike moving clockwise due to my fear. Clearly many people make this hike without issues on the divide. Down Cascade was amazingly beautiful. We saw fox and deer. A man caught a trout at Holly lake and our neighbor saw a Grizzly bear in the trees near our camp in the morning. Temps were warmer up high. Make sure you check the 10,000’ forecast before going.

Hiking

(Hiked 1st wk of Sept) Solo speed hiked this trail in 7.5 hours, starting at 8:15am at String Lake. This trail is 95% chill, consistently beautiful, but quite long. Most people you’ll encounter are backpacking this in 2 days, but honestly I’d rather do this with a light 1-day pack anyday. I started in Paintbrush Canyon and came out Cascade Canyon because I love the view out through Cascade after Lake Solitude and prefer the steeper way up the mountain pass and take the more mellow way down. In the AM, for hours I only ran into a handful of hikers in Paintbrush and 1 bear cub (didn’t see mom bear ) minding its own business. Tbh the Paintbrush section was just ok views-wise. The only slightly harder part of this trail is going over the mountain pass, which is steeper with some lose rock and 1 short patch of snow even in first wk of Sept with perfect weather. In the earlier summer, you would have to bring at least crampons in this section. The best views of the whole hike was coming down the mountain pass with views of Lake Solitude in front of you - that was worth the whole thing for me. Then it’s a consistently lovely views coming out of Cascade Canyon, but by the afternoon, this path will be PACKED with people in high season. In summary, this was very safe to hike solo, it’s literally impossible to get lost on this trail, and you will run into plenty of people. It’s beautiful, but if you had to pick 1 hard day-hike, I’d do Table Mountain over this one.

Hiking

One of the best hikes I've ever done. Went CCW. Day-hiked it in 10 total hours (7-5), using 3L of water (not super-fit or anything btw). Elevation gain was not too bad, but the length got to my joints. Definitely recommend trekking poles. Not as solitary as I'd hoped, but not crowded by any means.

BackpackingGreat!No shade

We did this trail counterclockwise (paintbrush first) and wouldn’t do it any other way. We stayed in Upper Paintbrush our first night (where we got the most amazing views) and then North Fork on the second night. The divide has some snow which is passable (but would be slippery coming down from Cascade). One note on the divide: the final ascent is steep and the trail is confusing at one spot. Hard to describe, but pay attention and don’t attempt anything dangerous. If you feel you have to, you may have gone off the trail. Many parts of the trail are quite exposed, so get an early start, also take a dip in Lake Solitude, it’s cold but amazing! Overall this hike was beautiful and worthwhile. There’s a reason this is the most popular backpacking trail

Hiking

My favorite single day hike in the Tetons. Did this yesterday. Took roughly 8.5 hours (active time). 9.5 with breaks. 4 liters of water. No ice axe/crampons necessary. You could do this in runners as of September 16. This will change with the next precipitation, but as of now it’s clear. We did it on a smoky day and still enjoyed great views!

The hike was truly amazing and I’d highly recommend it! Just take note this is NOT a 32 mile hike from Jenny Lake to Jenny Lake. We thought it was until we end up at mile 29 around Death Canyon Trailhead and it said we had 10 more mile to Jenny lake. If you plan to do the hike plan for 39 miles NOT 32!

HikingGreat!Rocky

The trail was great and the views are absolutely incredible. I strongly suggest going up paintbrush and down cascade canyon. Past Holly lake about a mile or so there are some very rocky/gravely type terrain which can be difficult leading up to the paintbrush divide. As you proceed down the other side of paintbrush divide, rocky conditions resume and continue for a good way leading towards lake solitude. This was my first hike of this length and it was quite strenuous but the views made it more than worth it!
