Pretty and shady trail

14 hours ago

Fun little day hike

Half the trail was closed for maintenance so we did String Lake to Moose Ponds and back. We saw a moose at Moose ponds, then two more moose on the west shore as we rode a 30 minute boat ride from the pier down from the visitor center. Pretty crowded trail though, we avoided the crowd by hiking the Jenny Lake road bike lane back to our car parked close to the String Lake trailhead. Good shortcut, we saw more wildlife there than on the trail itself.

Easy hike with nice views but the second loop is really poorly maintained.

Just did 6 miles out and back from the trailhead north of alum creek. There are plenty of parking spots across the four pullouts south of the Mary Mountain trailhead. Saw a dozen bison less than a 1/4 mile from the trail, and had to walk between three bison around mile 2. We did the hike in late May and the trail was really muddy (I nearly lost a shoe in mud) high winds around 30 miles per hour. Beautiful scenery but not a lot of animals besides the bison.

We did this hike on a really windy day and it was an interesting/scary experience. We saw a tree fall 50 feet ahead of us. Had to manage 50+mph wind with two bison on the trail and high chance to meet a bear. Glad that it was only an hour.

Great hike to see wildlife in the Mamoth area. we started the hike on the hot springs terrace side. The first two miles are covered so watch out for bears. Two groups ahead of us spotted a black bear but we didn't see it. Lot of wildlife sighting including a fox, deer, a lost deer calf :( and plenty of birds (geese, ducks, crows, osprey, robins and woodpeckers). No beavers though. Definetely worth the 2h.

Great 3h hike close to the West entrance right past the Madison junction. You can park in the pullout across the trailhead. Don't let the 2000ft of elevation scare you, it's really steady, no steep sections. Great views of the park after mile 1.2. Little to no wildlife on the trail but you might see bison in the prairie across the road.

DId this in the summer

First of all, this trail is rated as moderate. Can't give ya a bigger nerp on that. If you're in tip top physique, ya probably not that bad. But if you're the average American who works an office job and still eats gluten when no one is looking, be advised, YOU WILL BE SUCKING WIND. This trail is STRAIGHT UP with very little relief for over two miles. My husband and I were hiking with decently heavy packs and were stopping often to catch our breath and rest our legs. That being said, this is a nice trail, well worn, easily followed, great views. We went in late May, wildflowers everywhere. It was lovely. We only saw maybe two other couples on the trail, so that was nice. Bring a jacket no matter what time of year you go, wind is strong and chilly when you get close to the top. Would likely do it again. Just wanted all the other people like me to be aware that this trail is not as moderate to the average joe as the description depicts ;)

From Teton Village you can get this trail from up the Teewinot slope (just turn right towards the Apres Vous lift after passing the Four Seasons and heading up the big hill for a quarter mile). Then follow Valley Trail signs. Took the trail to Phelps Lake and around for a moderate hike. Not a lot of incline, but there were some snow covered trail areas even at the end of May.

it's a pretty good hike. and view for the falls is breathtaking. there is a lot of elevation climb so be prepared for that. Finished it in around an hour and 45 min.
