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.

We did a long loop hike by going up Paintbrush Canyon, over Paintbrush Divide, and then down Cascade Canyon. We started and ended at the String Lake Trailhead. It was a near 20-mile day hike. The best hike in the park in my opinion. On the hike up, we passed by Holly Lake. On the hike down, we passed by... More

This is voted as one of top 20 hikes by National Geographic. One of the hikes you would love to remember on a boring Tuesday afternoon! This is a journey into tranquility. The unforgettable landscape of snowcapped mountains, the sound of waterfalls all along the trail and the still quietness of the lake, makes this a hiker’s paradise! Check out... More

While visiting Jackson we wanted to do a major hike so that we could maximize our experience and see as much wildlife and all the natural beauty that the area has to offer in one day! This hike was all that we had hoped for and more!!! We decided to take the ferry across the lake and hike the 7.4... More

We originally wanted to do a loop including Paintbrush Canyon and Cascade Canyon, but the Paintbrush divide still required cramp-ons and an ice axe according to the park rangers. So, instead we just did Cascade Canyon both ways. The views during the hike were amazing, and Lake Solitude was a perfect destination (and a nice place to filter water). Can't... More

This is much more than a nature walk! The altitude isn't the most difficult part, but the distance is long. Bring a water filtration system as it's not worth it to carry enough water up with you. You'll be crossing over several small streams and ice fields/glaciers, so bring appropriate shoes. The views are incredible, and once you reach the... More

I was searching for info as I reminisced about hiking to Lake Solitude many years ago and came upon these TripAdvisor reviews. Didn't know one could review "a hike" on TA, but here goes. Went out with a buddy from school in late May, early June. Had been camping around Jackson Lake, and decided to overnight up at Solitude. Started... More

This is one of the most scenic hikes we've ever done - beautiful canyon scenery all the way up to the lake and back down (with views of the Tetons most of the way back). We saw plenty of wildlife including bears, mule deer, marmots, pikas etc. Finished by an osprey swooping into the lake and pulling out a fish... More

This is not for the casual day hiker. It's a long , long day but well worth the effort. On a clear day the views are spectacular. On the trail we encountered a moose grazing in a stream and a black bear ambling parallel with us on the other side of the stream. The ferry wasn't running so we had... More
