My husband and I hiked this in late September 2014, we started at 6:30am and enjoyed it so much we wished we had packed in to spend the night up there! Turn after turn there were fall colors, waterfalls and beautiful mountain views. Soaked our feet in the lake and headed back down. We spotted a female moose on the... More

Hiked in late October and this trail did not disappoint! Originally intended to hike only to the Forks of Cascade Canyon however decided to press on as we were making good time and we had already come this far. Being late October the trail had a nice broken coat of snow which really added to the alpine feel. After the... More

This takes some effort to get to but will reward you deeply for your 7.25 or 9.25 mile hike to reach it, depending on whether you avail yourself of the jenny lake hikers shuttle boat. Above inspiration point, the elevation gain becomes gentle but you are climbing, steadily. Alongside a rushing brook surrounded by the towering ramparts of cascade canyon,... More

Lake Solitude is not the prettiest mountain lake I have seen but a very nice one, and never the less worth the hike. Depending on the time of the day you might or might not find solitude as the name indicates. When we got there after 4 pm there were other hikers. We managed to be the last ones to... More

Accessing through Cascade Canyon or Paint Brush this is the destination. Beautiful Alpine Lake secluded for the most part if you don't count the wildlife. Moderate to Strenuous difficulty hiking from Cascade or Paint Brush.

Beware, this is a LONG hike to do in one day. In the fall, the Jenny Lake Shuttle is limited and so we tacked on 4 miles to our hike which was a bummer....but, the view is spectacular, not too many people make the hike all the way here, so it is peaceful and an accomplishment!

My wife and I hiked this in late July starting from Jenny Lake lodge at 7 am. 18 miles RT but worth it. The hike along Jenny lake is nice in the morning. Once reaching the horse trail (also the main trail from the boat dock because of trail construction) it gets steep for a while then moderates once you... More

This was, by far, the highlight of my time in the Tetons. I started at 7:30 AM from String Lake and hiked up Paintbrush Canyon. The views the whole way were amazing - tall, rugged walls & peaks all around. We hiked past Holly Lake and up over the Divide (over 10,000 feet). I felt like I was in a... More

My 22 year old son and I hiked to here from Jenny Lake - 7.2 total miles. Spectacularly beautiful scenery. The hike from the forks was challenging due to remaining snow that covered some of the trails about a third of the way from the forks. We a managed to find our way but I needed to stop a bit...

Such a unique and lovely lake to see while you visit the Grand Teton National Park. See as much of this park as time allows while you are there.
