Staying in Teton Village and decided to take a hike. Walked up Death Canyon and enjoyed the amazing views back across the lake. Only made it part way up the trail as the snow covered the track and the weather began to close in. On the way back down, bumped into a lady moose. Excellent. Saw a few marmot types and a Marten. Great fun. Loving the Tetons

Nice peaceful trail with lots of wildlife - I even saw a couple pine martens chasing each other. No mosquitos or flies out yet on May 13, but I did pick off one tick. Lots of good campsites, especially after reaching the wilderness area ~4 miles in.

We hiked this in late May and found it to be a great little trail. You go through a variety of scenery including pine forest, birch grove, woodland meadows and streams, small lakes and ponds, and open sage brush. There were lots of animals and birds about including elk, deer, bear sign, and a badger. Ducks, grouse, and a variety of song birds were abundant. The hike has a steep beginning but the majority of the hike has little or gradual elevation change. No mosquitos!

Not a lot of “majestic” views, but lots of variety and wildlife. Recommended for kids!

Fantastic view and a great incline with lots of wildlife

Wonderful day with perfect weather. A bit tricky in parts due to snow but otherwise very good and easy footing. Some superb views. We liked the elevation changes. Wonderful mountain lakes.

Terrific hike with amazing views. Some good elevation changes, deer, but apart from small ground animals, not a lot of wildlife to view. Very crowded with hikers.

A superb trail with everything, amazing vistas, wildlife including a mother grisly and 2 cubs within 30 feet- quite uninterested in us, deer, and lots of ground animals. Great elevation changes, some open areas, and generally very easy footing. Superb lake side trails.

Short hike including a lake, a meadow, and the ocean

Incredible!!! No beavers but was our favorite part of our 3 day stay in Yellowstone.

Waste of precious time. Way too many other awesome hikes and places to see than this. Hiking uphill in a forest with minimal
Views and zero wildlife. Have no idea why this hike is suggested other than it’s close to the campground.

We went on May 20 and would not recommend hiking this trail for another month. The trail is near impossible to find at the top and falling through the snow 3-5’ deep and getting stuck and stabbed by logs is not safe. Has a beautiful view of Yellowstone lake and hotel though.

Absolutely gorgeous trail! Amazing views of the lake and mountains. Parts of the trail were covered in snow and pretty muddy, but not too bad. We saw plenty of marmots and a moose.

slight elevation all the way to the top. went out on 5/18 and there was a ranger doing trail maintenance. you can make it all the way to the top. last 200m has snow but there are several tracks. keep hiking past all the snow and there are dry spots with beautiful views to have your snack/lunch.

This was our approach when we visited yellowstone years past. Very scenic.

Awesome. Other than mud pots and funerals saw buffalo

Fantastic view of Phelps lake and the mountains! A mama bear and her two cubs decided to join us on the trail. Bear spray is a MUST. We Parked at the nature preserve then once we got to the lake we hiked clockwise. This put most of the difficult part of the trail at the beginning, so by the end when our kiddos were tired, we were rolling easy. We also encountered a moose that was grazing on the trail. It took us a bit to get him to move, but eventually he decided to move on so we could get by. The trail ended up being 8 miles. There were a lot of wet areas around the back of the lake from all the snow melt but nothing too deep.

Road was closed. ;(

We were here 3rd week of May. Hiked to almost top of the waterfall and had to turn around to losing the trail due to snow. Had it been signs, we would have went further. Can’t wait to do it again!! Awesome views!

Nice hike that took us about 4 1/2 hours to do. Lots of animal tracks all along the trail. Multiple bear scat and had a moose on the trail. It has great views of the Tetons at the halfway point. Make sure you hike with others on this one due to the amount of bear and moose activity on the trail.

Great hike.. awesome views .. suspension bridge.. remember the bear spray!!!

Great cross country ski getaway

It was very muddy when I hiked, but it was an amazing trail with fantastic views of the river valley.

Short steep climb at the start then levels off to trout lake. Good amount of traffic in the afternoon. We saw a moose near the start of the trail.

Tons of buffalo, gets busy towards the afternoon. Nice views of the valley.

Nice views from overlook point. Do this trail early to beat the crowds and have most of basin to yourself.

Nice hike with a steep climb at the start then leveling out through thick trees. Saw elk, deer, chipmunks and ground squirrels for days. Beaver pond had a couple of abandoned beaver dams but no beavers. Great views of the canyon.

Incredible landscape to explore, petroglyphs near by, dunes down the road; I went today (march 16) and the road that gets you all the way to Boars tusk is very very very rough. Need a high clearance truck IMO. Still, can hike down the road to the volcano throat. Very worth the visit.

We hiked this trail in May and still had to cross knee high snow along the mountain. The trail was mildly challenging in a couple of areas but beautiful views the entire way.

We started at String Lake trailhead and walked Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls - round trip about 5 miles. Amazing views at the lake and the waterfall ending was breathtaking. Encountered snow but with proper shoes not an issue. Had to be careful in spots but doable. Saw Moose, Elk and plenty of Marmots. Was not too trafficked. Loved the hike ...
