Beautiful hike. There is a creek crossing, so be prepared for that. Wildflowers and the occasional patch of snow made the hike even more interesting.

FYI, the trailhead map call this a ‘moderate’ six mile hike, with 1000 ft elevation. Our AW said 4.6 miles out and back. Great flowers, and a cold lake!

Lots of entertaining flowers, rocks, trees, views as you go along. Trail was a good workout but not too terrible. I wish I would have had ear muff and another layer or two so sitting by the lake was not so cold. I also wish the fork in the trail near the end was marked to take the left fork. I'm not sure where the right one goes.

Hiked it on June 24th and the snow was 99% gone...on the trail that is! Beautiful hike. Somewhat steep, so plan accordingly. At a good pace with several breaks, it takes 2-2.5 hours round trip.

We climbed this mountain may 28th!! We lost the trail due to snow and was almost on all fours do to how steep it was. The view is absolutely stunning but boy was it hard work.

We had gone way back when around July of last year--it was definitely one of the most beautiful hikes of our trip, with wildflowers everywhere. Being from the East Coast/Midwest area, it was a 'moderate' rather than easy hike for us with the elevation changes, but absolutely worth it!

Great overnight hike and camping by Moose Lake. Very scenic lake with trout. The Tetons are not visible from this trail.

I did this hike in June of 2016 with my wife. We took the Old Pass Road To Teton Pass Trail back up to our starting trailhead were we started our hike on the Black Canyon Loop Trail.....approximately a 10 mile hike total. Okay hike close to the highway. As previously reviewed, beautiful views below nonetheless.

I did this hike in June of 2016 with my wife. Instead of doing this trail out and back, we took the Old Pass Road To Teton Pass Trail back up to our starting trailhead..... approximately a 10 mile hike total. After descending from the high views, the trail carves through some of the neatest forest hiking we have ever seen.

Very muddy right now, but great trail through nice terrain, and a cool lake at the end!

Great scenery, variable terrain from woods to meadow, some elevation climb but also many level areas. Beautiful wild flowers all along the trail. Definitely on my recommended list! Bring picnic lunch to the lake, then explore beyond and above the lake itself.

Nearly every step of this trail is paved with wildflowers. The sound of the creek rushing past and the iconic peak of the grand Teton ahead, I'd be surprised if another trail of similar difficulty in the area truly outshines Moose Meadows. While the trail gains a bit of elevation, it's fairly short, so an eager hiker could squeeze it in before leaving town or a more leisurely group could take it easily and enjoy the views without really breaking a sweat. There were many, many spots that looked like the perfect place to set up camp along the trail. Perhaps my favorite quality of all this trail had to offer is it's peacefulness. As moose meadows is outside of GTNP, we only encountered a handful of other hikers or backpackers when we hiked the trail on a very high volume day for GTNP and the surrounding area for viewing direct totality of the solar eclipse. This was truly a fantastic place to enjoy the solitude of the outdoors--and if you really want this to be the Best Day Ever, I recommend stopping at Moo's ice cream on the way back and enjoying it riverside behind the Bagels shop next door.

Steep up and precarious down. Great views when it isn't fire season.

Spectacular flowers, no bugs on our trip. Hardly any others on trail. Best wildflowers we saw during our week of hiking.

Short and sweet!

Very nice ride. Some heavy breathing at first. I wish the trail would be longer at the top.

What a view. Went early June and it was covered with snow. No snowshoes needed due to snow pac. one of the best views yet. It may take effort and many breaks but it is worth it at the top. Recommended that you bring a sled to to get down fast!

Awesome views and the perfect length for a morning hike before work or after.

Forest service calls this a "moderate" hike of three miles each way, so there are some discrepancies with the description. Essentially 1000 feet elevation gain over that distance, at times quite steep. But beautiful, with wildflowers working their way into bloom. There are three steam crossings, two of them involving logs, one of those not flattened. The third has a nice bridge. On a sunny Sunday morning, there were dozens making the hike, many with dogs.y

It is uphill and hard for sure! Took us about an hour and a half to get up to the top, but the view was breathtaking! Worth it! I would totally do it again!

This hike is a challenge no doubt- but the view from the top has to be one of the best views I've seen.

We did this hike but went up to Phillips pass. Couldn't find that hike so I figured I add it to here. Its about 8.5 miles round trip.
beautiful hike with plenty of flowers. Locals said we missed the bloom by two weeks.

Nice trail that leads to a very pretty lake, with mountain views all around. Not one of my favorite trails in the area because it runs pretty close to the highway. But beautiful area nonetheless.
