We took the ferry across Jenny Lake on the way over which cuts off about 2 or so miles to the trailhead. However, on the way back, its well worth traversing the walk back to the Jenny Lake visitor centre around the lake. The last ferry leaves the trailhead site for the return to the visitor at 4pm so if... More

A wonderful day hike from Leigh Lake. Take a picnic and plenty of water and enjoy the spectacular views of the glacier lakes below. If you're lucky, you will also see lots of wildlife, don't forget your bear spray!

The climb to Inspiration Point is not easy; the trail is rocky, but the views back across the lake and up the canyon are incredible. Hiking further up the canyon is easier and to be between the peaks is an imposing experience.

You have to walk a ways into the canyon to see how the canyon got its name, but it is totally worthwhile. We also got to see a Moose from pretty close distance.

I don't want to sound like a broken record but if you've read more than a few reviews for Cascade Canyon you've already heard this: If you make it all the way up to Inspiration Point don't turn back after checking out the view. The best is yet to come and you've already come through the most strenuous part of... More

Whatever time you have, hike into the canyon. We had to turn back after about an hour and a half, and I so wish we had more time to go farther! The trail is shaded for the most part, and flat after the inspiration point (we were told, for about 3.5 miles). You are walking in a forest along a... More

Well marked paths and informative signs. It was beautiful! We saw a bear and able to take lots of pictures. The boat ride over on Jenny Lake was well organized and nice.

This Falls is just a short walk from the highway and takes only minutes to get to. The Falls and cascading river are not huge, but they are most definitely gorgeous and great way to start your visit to Yellowstone if you enter through the East Entrance.

This is not a hike for those afraid of heights, or not in good shape. You must hike up for at least a mile before you even get to canyon. But the trip up is beautiful since you will pass Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point before getting to the canyon. You should hike at least a mile or two past... More
