Did this a couple of years back. Amazing hike with amazing views at the top. Not an easy hike so very rewarding once completed.

This was rough. We did this hike in July and it was a brutal climb. Even worse was the terror of coming down. Bring trekking poles, though, and you'll have a better time of it. Outstanding views of Jackson though.

Did this hike a little too close to dusk. Passed plenty of people who said they had not seen much in the way of wildlife, but our experience was much different. We saw a herd of elk running through a nearby meadow and a badger scuttling across the trail right in front of us. We did not make it to the ponds, however, because we came across a brown bear about 2.5 miles in. It was on the trail 25 yards ahead of us before we ever saw it, and we did not have bear spray. We immediately hiked up the ridge to distance ourselves, and luckily the ol' bear continued on its way without giving us a second thought. We turned around and went back out the way we came. Fantastic scenery and wildlife, but be smarter than I was!
(1) Do not start a hike at dusk. (2) Carry bear spray. (3) Hike in a group of three or more. (4) Follow any other guidelines provided by park personnel.

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

Hiked the summer trail in the snow. The last mile stretch was the most challenging but worth it for the views at the top.

Best place to see the paint pots in Yellowstone!

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!

I am totally confused by comments here and elsewhere that state this trail passes the Howard Eaton Trail. Could someone please explain how that is possible? Or what they are talking about?
The Howard Eaton trail that I know goes south from Old Faithful to the Lonestar geyser/Shoshone Geyser Basin trail.

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).

Super easy, quick hike, and if that’s what you’re looking for it’s great. Awesome view of the Teton range.

Best to go in late August. Going in the middle of summer you will share this trail with hundreds of other people. To crowded in the heart of summer.

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!

These lakes are incredibly beautiful! And the mountains are unreal!

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

Do the full trail!!!! We saw so many people turn around at the falls but we kept going to the top of the mountain and it was SOOO worth it. Probably my favorite hike we did in Yellowstone! The view of all the geysers steaming in September was like something I’ll probably never see again. Amazinggggg!!!!

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.

My husband and I went on this hike 11-17-18. There is a small area to park. Make sure to follow the trail straight from the parking area then go to the right and cross the stream/river (a little difficult when hiking) to get to the more scenic trail. Otherwise if you go to the left and up the hill a little it heads to a road that you can walk on. On our hike we saw wolf tracks, a bison and a grouse! We didn't make it the whole way due to getting a late start. I would recommend if you are looking for a nice hike/walk and a chance to see wildlife!

Coming back on Cache Creek trail/road make a bit shorter loop with views of the mountains.

It was a spectacular hike ❤️. By far my fave.

Trail is impassible without snow shoes and ice picks even in June. If you plan to hike this trail wait until late July August (I found this out the hard way)

Great trail! I hiked the trail in early June and saw mother bear and her cubs as well as a bull moose.

I hiked this at the end of August and there was a lot of snow. I almost got blown over by the wind at the top! It is steep the whole way up except for a few spots. If you are doing it, come prepared with water and layers.

We loved this hike. Still can’t believe we were there ❤️

I hiked from Jenny lake halfway through the cayon and back with my mother. There was moderate foot traffic until the boat dock. The waterfall, wildflowers, and wildlife were awesome. We stopped by a stream and saw a fox chasing a beaver. Great hike that totaled about 9 miles round-trip.

Hiked to the prismatic overlook, and then finished on this trail. Totaled about 10 miles. The imperial geyser was the highlight of the trip. Hike was pretty boring compared to other hikes, but was very easy. Worth seeing the geyser over the falls or prismatic.
