Fantastic trail. If you don't want to pay for the ferry, you can park at String Lake and hike just 1.7 miles to the trailhead, saving 2.2 miles vs the hike from the Jenny Lake trailhead. once you complete the initial switchbacks which are somewhat strenuous, the remainder of the trail is a gradual climb up the canyon. Even if you can't complete the full trail, don't stop at the trail junction at the top of the switchbacks. One further mile into the canyon opens up views and vistas you don't want to miss. I had the luck to see two moose across the creek and encounter zero bears. Do being bear spray and hike in a group.

Great easy trail for carrying a young kid in a pack or for an aspiring young hiker. Views aren’t totally stunning but isn’t quite as busy as other easily-accessible parts of Grand Teton. Try going at 4 or 5pm for the least busy option.

Well maintained trail with a beautiful view of the Grand Teton Mountain over Taggert Lake. Hiked Aug 2018 with the Denton’s.

Beautiful view, but too difficult for me to hike there.

Took my family on the Delta Lake hike this morning, me, my wife, My son 15 and daughter 11. It was amazing. We started at 840AM and ended back at the lot at 225 PM with an hour spent at Delta Lake. Word to the wise for parents wanting to bring their kids; this is not for non active children. My 15 year old handled it great. My 11 year old struggled with the switchbacks headed up over the first 3 miles. But she was determined to get to the EPIC destination. The first of the Boulder fields is not extremely difficult. The second boulder field does create some challenges. But taking it slow and methodical and follow the cairns is the best bet. The lake is pristine and everything you expect it to be. And COLD. Both my kids came prepared and took the plunge to a round of applause from the other hikers. Only to promptly exit and ask for their towel they brought!

The way down is slick through the boulder fields. Slow and steady.

GPS showed 7.2 miles RT.

Our only regret was that we did not start sooner to spend more time at Delta Lake. You will want to spend time there.

The best!

a short boardwalk stroll to very beautiful thermal pools
get there before it warms up to see the steam wafting through the air

Loved it. Absolutely beautiful but the elevation will hurt if you’re not used to it

The hike starts a little slow but afer 2-3 miles in really opens up! I recommend climbing past the boulders and continuing up the snow. You will not be disappointed with this one

This hike was magnificent. I recommend starting before 10am if you want to do the whole thing in a day. I didn't come across many mosquitos at all. Weather was beautiful and the lake is a great place to stop and take a dip in before or after taking on the steep part of the trail. I will definitely be coming back here for a camping trip.

This trail is not 5.7 m it’s 7.7m. Totally beautiful!!!

The lake is beautiful getting to trailhead was a bit rough as the road is rocky and deep runoff ruts. Be careful about one third of the way in the trail forks and Someone has turned the arrow left . This takes you to the top of the mountain you need to go right to get to the lake . We hiked an extra 5 miles before we came back and found the lake.

This hike is absolutely incredible. The detour makes the hike more like 14 miles. The view and wildflowers are amazing. Would also recommend swimming in Lake Solitude. We saw 4 moose just on this hike. Its a must.

We absolutely loved this hike! Took us about 5 hours in total, we went just past the fork at the end to picnic a bit closer to the falls. We saw a black bear near the start, and the views throughout this hike were simply unreal... At one point, my 17 yr old son squealed with joy at the views near the creek.. One of the definite highlights of our Grand Teton/ Yellowstone trip, highly recommended! Definitely recommend an early start: we took an 8 am boat crossing, and had the trail mostly to ourselves. On our way back, the trail was PACKED and it was a completely different experience.

You share part of the trail with horses so there can be a lot of poop on the trail. We started at the petrified tree and went around lake where we encountered a heavy steam of hikers headed to the tree. The climb down to the lodge was very nice switch backs, shaded with lots of pines. More hikers coming up exhausted from climb up from lodge. We really did not like coming out of the trail into a resort with people everywhere eating their breakfast and shopping the general store. That was very odd and not our idea of hiking. The loop pretty much disappears here and we forged our own way back into the woods and found the trail again. It was grown over poorly marked and we navigated thru high weeds before the trail went straight up the mountain. We thought we were on the wrong trail until we saw one other group doing the loop in the opposite direction. Very poorly maintained trail.
The views are amazing but this is a hard vertical climb with a lot of direct sun exposure, make sure your hydrated and fit for a hard climb.
Overall the views of the valley and surrounding mountains were very nice.

I have hiked this trail three separate times. The beautiful aspens, view of the lake and the Tetons make for a tranquil hike. Very heavily trafficked up until the lake, then moderately trafficked continuing on the loop. We went a few days ago and ran into a black bear. We made noise and ran into the woods. Nice easy hike.

after a summer of hiking and exploring yellowstone and the grand tetons electric peak was my favorite most physically exerting journey of mine. Very sketchy adrenaline inducing scramble during the last mile or so lots of loose rock be aware of triggering a small avalanche behind you if your hiking in a group.

Took this hike up and around to Phelps Lake. Beautiful scenery and the lake was very refreshing when we arrived. Crossed paths with two bears along the way which was very pleasant to watch.

First time hiking this trail and it did not disappoint. The first leg is a nice pace and we saw a bear not too far off the trail which was really cool to watch. Cooled off in the water up top and along the way which was very refreshing. Certainly recommend this trail

We hiked this trail in about 2.25 hours. Nice and steady incline of close to 3000 feet. Will work your lungs! At Amphitheatre Lake we had lunch then spent the next hour climbing the narrow trails and boulders that started at the lake and went further up. SUPER technical. Not recommended unless you're a skilled hiker. We made it to a glacier and turned around. The views up there were unbelievable.

Toooooo long

Mosquitoes not bad. LOTS of people on the trail as we hiked out Saturday and the lot was overflow. But a great place to spend the week.

Amphitheater Lake is amazing! Many people went swimming in the cold water. Well maintained trail.

This was a great hike for my wife and infant who i carried. It is a very easy hike with amazing views. No real elevation change and a clear trail. We hiked on Thursday August 9th and was easily able to park in the lot at the trail head at 9am. When we left at 1pm and the lot was insanely busy with many people fighting over our spot as we left. The part of the lake near the parking lot was full of people canoeing and on paddle boards, looked like a regular party cove.
The views are amazing and really peak around the camp sites. We went the full 7miles round trip and felt like we wasted the last few miles.

Hiking is beautiful and moderate. Heard and saw lots of kids wading in the lake Water is pure and clear.

Very easy hike. Flat ground, very few rocks. Did the overlook, then the walk to the falls. Came across very few people, maybe 10 small groups, even in the busy month of July.

The ascent was challenging, but the views were worth it.
