Very beautiful lake on top. Saw small bear early in AM when we got to the lake. Early AM the wildlife is very abundant.

This hike is on the easier end of moderate. Some snow on most of the trail, so although spikes aren’t necessarily needed, they are highly recommended. There were a couple falls between myself and a fellow hiker due to slippery snow and mud areas. Gorgeous hike though! Creek/river is still frozen, but in some areas you could hear the water still rushing underneath the ice. That was neat. You can also (very carefully!) walk on the frozen water up to where the waterfall would normally be

Great great view...a little crowded but still pretty awesome!

Much less crowded than the rest of the park with some unique features in here.

Freaking awesome...crowded but not too bad...being a little bit off the road helps.

Classic...not a necessarily a hike but it’s super amazing still.

Went all the way to lake solitude.... fantastic

This was my first backpacking trip and it was definitely the best thing I did all year. we did the hike in 3 days and 2 nights, our group took the tram and exited at jenny lake, the views were completely mind blowing! we saw two bears down cascade canyon. we went in august and the weather was perfect, the wildflowers were in season and there were huckleberries everywhere (if you know which ones are huckleberries :))

Great hike! Good obstacles but i would not call it hard. We backpacked in for a couple of nights and stayed near the shelf lakes to the East of North Gap Lake. Beautiful views, and some of the lakes had fish. I was using dry flies and it seemed they would take about anything I put on top. Will do this hike again one day even if only for the fishing!

Beautiful but very crowded

Stunning, really loved it

Good hike, beautiful in new snow. Didn’t need snowshoes and spikes were helpful, though not necessary. Didn’t see anyone else on the trail today (01/01/19).

Took tram from Teton village to Death canyon trailhead 4 days 3 nights out. Started in mountain snow and rain through 1st night . Crest trail quite muddy the next few days. My gaiters were a life saver! Be prepared for an extra mile at Death canyon trailhead due to limited parking so overflow is a distance away.

Great Winter Hike!!
We started ~1mile below the trailhead due to the seasonal closure. We took the trail over to the historic camp, then we went up to the lake overlook and turned it from there. Gorgeous views and very easy terrain. Since it was winter, we left the trail a number of times to explore the area.
If you're a backcountry skier, this is an amazing spot. Climb would only take a couple hours and the lines are spectacular.

I took an additional trail above the grand prismatic...not a soul on the trail but us. Gorgeous overlook of the pools without all of the traffic on the east path to the pools.

I hike this trail year round and absolutely love it. Snowshoeing is the best on this trail and the views are gorgeous. I usually see wildlife so be prepared, this trail is a must do

FAVORITE TRAIL IN TETONS!!!! Go all the way!

We did not make it all the way but the views were incredible in the canyon!

Interesting trail. Got to see old faithful blow twice! So many interesting hot springs and geysers here.

Breathtaking. Never seen anything so naturally beautiful but DOES NOT HAVE A BATHROOM! Haha only complaint I have. Haha

Beautiful lookout point to the Yellowstone canyon!

This trail is amazing, especially cascade canyon. We took 3 days/2 nights to cover 30 miles. Camped outside the national park both nights b/c we didn't have permits. A good amount of elevation change, but totally worth it!

Amazing views. Steep start then a flat, visually stunning hike. This was an all-star hike.

Off the beaten path, but way better than any waterfall you’ll see on an easy access trail in the park.

Recently a friend and I planned to hike the Teton Crest Trail. As with any trip to the Tetons, especially during peak season (pretty much Memorial Day to Labor Day), I always suggest having a backup plan or three. Backcountry permits can be especially difficult to attain for top campsites, and so we worked with the rangers to plan a 5 day/4 night trip. Originally planning to go up the north fork of Cascade Canyon and over Paintbrush Divide, a late August snow storm had us rerouting out of Cascade Canyon a day early. Long story short, any outing in the Teton Backcountry is one I enjoy. From forests and steep canyons to alpine tundra, this hike can feel like a different planet every day.
Our Itinerary:
Day 1 - Death Canyon TH to Lower Granite Canyon
Day 2 - Lower Granite to Marion Lake
Day 3 - Marion Lake to Sunset Lake
Day 4 - Sunset Lake to Jenny Lake Shuttle Dock

Did this as a loop hike over the course of 3 days. Rough outline was: Trailhead, Dad's Lake, Barren Lake, Texas Pass into the Cirque, out over Jackass Pass back to trailhead. Surprised at the lack of mosquitoes in early August. AMAZING hike, but Texas Pass is not for the faint of heart. The only other hard part was picking our way down the boulders into the Cirque.

Highly recommend a bit of training before this trip, but the views are so incredibly worth it.
