My husband and some friends went out early to hike this trail. We hoped to see wildlife but did not. However, the trail was still great! Nice scenes and pretty forest areas to hike through. Also a feeling of accomplishment to make it to the Teton sign and see Jackson lake. I’d consider this trail moderate and not hard however there are some ups and downs in elevation and we did cross one creek where there was no footbridge. The trail goes on from here to a few other points in the Tetons which I would love to do someday.
