Nice hike that took us about 4 1/2 hours to do. Lots of animal tracks all along the trail. Multiple bear scat and had a moose on the trail. It has great views of the Tetons at the halfway point. Make sure you hike with others on this one due to the amount of bear and moose activity on the trail.

It is an ok hike dense forest limited views it was secluded ok , Very flat. St least it seemed that way

Easy hike for family. Was able to see a Mule deer bedded down and even had a Fox run past us on the trail which made the kids love it.

Easy hike with kids and great scenery everywhere. Loved this spot.

This is really a beautiful hike if the sun is setting. We saw a frog while walking and were immersed in trees. Dirt path for most of it while on the island.

Gorgeous! We were tired from paddling in the morning but I'm so glad we did this. It only took 1.5 hours with several stops for swimming and resting. Amazing Teton Views! No bears for us today.

This was likely our least favorite hike from our Tetons trip. The length doesn't bother me if there is pay off, but unfortunately it just wasn't there. The first 2-3 miles of the hike around the ponds and lakes on the peninsula are nice (we saw deer, beavers, falcons, storks), but after that it's mile after mile of wooded hiking with not many views of the Tetons or the water. The "point" didn't have too many places to settle in and enjoy, and with all the motor boats speeding around it didn't seem all that serene or earned. This trial also had hoards of mosquitoes as compared to the rest of the park (in late July, early morning).

Easy walk. We had a grizzly cross in front of our path this afternoon!!

Trail doesn't lead to anything view or interest. Just a walk in the woods.

Family hiked this trail with the ranger led group which starts at 1:00 pm. The hike was 3 miles long and lasted 3 hours - not sure why AllTrails says it's 8 miles even the trail map matches. It was very nice and easy. We saw a pair of trumpeter swans and a beaver den. A great view of the mountains across the lake.

A bear crossed in front of us on the path so we didn't finish the loop completely but what we did see was beautiful!

Relatively easy hike, amazing view at the top. However, pretty similar views can be found just along the roads in the park, so maybe not worth it if you're doing it just for the view. For my group, a good way to stretch the legs after driving a lot, and the view is certainly at least marginally better than what you'll get on the roads.

Beautiful views along the North rim. Be sure to travel with the lake on your left for stunning views of the Tetons with wild flowers littering the trail. Woodsy areas are very buggy, definitely bring bug spray. Great experience, highly recommend! We started at the trailhead off Wilderness Access Road and forgot to turn the tracker off when we drove out which is why the end point goes beyond the start point.

Amazing views. Fun hike with the family.

Gorgeous views but much of the tail is underwater and it's a bit confusing if you want to walk the perimeter. Would recommend going to the hidden falls or just wandering around

Decided to do this trail including the North and South side of the lake. Not a great hike for views of what appears to be a beautiful lake. We came in from the Pacific Creek Road marker and started with the North side of the lake. Overall this had better views but those were limited. After about 6 miles and now on the South Trail we had lunch at the overlook. Nice views.

South Trail in my opinion was a total waste. Only 1 spot to take pictures of the lake. The rest was a hike in heavily wooded area.

The area is heavy with mosquito's so check with the locals as to the time they are in.

Positive: The trail is fairly easy to navigate and the park service is doing a great job on tree removal. Moderate is a fair rating for the trail as far as elevation change and length.

If there were more views and access to the lake it would be a great day hike.

Just wow!!!!!!

Great views. Flat trail without elevation.

Did the entire loop with lunch at the point. Saw only a few hikers on the trail today. Trail offers some wide area's were horses share the trail. ( only saw them on the way back). Grizzly with two cubs were reported the day before in the first section but we saw nothing the entire hike. The trail has several ways to hike it and offers some great views of the Tetons.

For the most part the trail I would have rated as easy. It is wide and somewhat flat with an easy grade elevation. It does get moderate in some area's and the trail becomes narrow.

Wild flowers are just starting to pop and there are some great area's to get some color in. Some of the trails has area's under restoration. Trail had been cleared recently by the park service. All in all I will add this to my favorite list.

Great easy trail. Gives plenty of reflections of the Tetons. Still a few snow banks on the trail but still worth the walk.

We walked the Hermitage Point Trail early June starting on the western side via Herron Pond, Hermitage Point then back east to Swan Lake and Colter Bay. Took about 4.5 hours including lunch at a slow pace. Highlights were Herron Pond with beaver? dam, water lillies, eagle, geese, ducks, herron, a woodpecker and the views at Hermitage Point. The 2.2 mile section between Herron Pond to Hermitage Point was pretty dull through pine forest but the eastern side from Hermitage Point to Swan Lake was a bit more varied with ups and downs and glimpses of creeks, meadows, and mountains. Sadly the track diverted away from Swan Lake fairly quickly back into pine with glimpses through to the lake - just enough to hint at all the amazing birds and beavers you're missing.

It is about a 8-10 mile loop that allows for amazing mountain views and lots of animal sightings. Saw lots of bear tracks and scat. Saw a moose and definitely scared something else up.

Easy hike with nice views but the second loop is really poorly maintained.

great lake & mtn views with slight elevation changes..long hike & a bit mundane at times..well worth the blister!!

I went here a few years ago late August. Ranger told us to look out for Grizzlies, though we didn't end up seeing any. Crossed a few little creeks to get there and there was a bear box nearby the actual spring. The source is on a slope that rolls into a shallow creek. The spring was hot and the area is nice as there wasn't any other people around in the gorgeous meadow.

I've heard of people xc skiing to the site when there is snow, probably would be another nice experience.

Going to the right when you start the trail is incredible. If I did it over I wouldn't do the loop, I would go back the same way I came in, once I got to the point. The views are much better.
