Stunning views, worth every switchback and sore muscles! When at Surprise Lake, make sure to go around the lake to get an amazing view of the valley!

Such a special hike. HIGHLY recommended. We saw a beaver, a lot of pika and chipmunks. The hike doesn't feel like a 7 mile hike because of the fairly flat and manageable terrain. Bring your swim suit. There is a beach about half way through and then a large rock/cliff that you can jump off into. These were the only two points on the trail that felt crowded. We ended up picking a more private area and getting some swimming in. Very chilly and refreshing water.

I highly recommend doing the 2.5 hike out there. It's very scenic and great trails. It gets much more crowded along where the boat drops off. We ended up taking the shuttle back just for time saving. The boat was very quick. We didn't know if we were going to do it this way but glad we did and you pay when you get off the boat at the trail head.

Be ready for the falls to be crowded and any time you're trying to have to view them and take it all in,
to be interrupted by someone asking you to take their picture.

Enjoyed the walk... only failing was my own in not getting a walking guide to know more. Is there an app for information on the geyser walk?

Moderately difficult hike up to the first lake, plan on a short river crossing within the first mile. Beautiful meadows and views of nearby snow capped peaks and year-round glaciers as you advance on the trail. If fishing, don't expect any trophy fish. Plan on abundant 8-14 inch rainbow trout in the lower lakes. Upper lakes are mostly barren, with the best fish found in the large lake with high boulder fields to the south-west of the initial lake. Prepare for heavy mosquitos in the morning and evening with plenty of bug spray and netting. Definitely one of the most scenic areas of the winds I have ever been. Beautiful glacier-carved cliffs and partially frozen lakes made for an incredibly unique week of backpacking.

Great view of lower falls. I thought the trek was fun but it is an incline back up

This hike completely changed my outlook on hiking. I used to dislike hiking, but the spectacular views, varied ecotomes, and general variety of scenery in this hike is absolutely amazing. It is rocky, which makes it a difficult hike, but completely worth it. There are some exposed sections, and hiking on snow is required (not for much of the hike, just about 20-50 yards).

Still, this is the best hike I have ever been on and has convinced me to go hiking a lot more often. Now, instead of looking for other activities to do while my family hikes, I actively look forward to hiking and go almost every weekend.

Hard on the way up. Great trail all around. At the bottom, take the sign to mammoth 3 miles. My nat Geo map showed a .8 spur to meet up with Howard Eaton and cut a mile off. Don't do it! Had to get a ride back to mammoth!

The best! The most majestic peak you will see. We got tot he summit too! The first 2/3 is tough hike/scramble/snow and ice traverse. A lot of the final third up the grand is technical. Great guides wade and Collin from Jackson hole mountain guides.

The vedauwoo trail is absolutely gorgeous. It's not very long so if I'm there I usually do the turtle rock trail which is also pretty easy so it's nice for a quick hike or trail running. However, my favorite thing to do is hike around the turtle rock trail and then head to box canyon via the vedauwoo trail where you can then pretty easily scramble your way to the top of turtle rock itself. 10/10
