“Perfectly Pristine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The snow peaked Tetons tower over you on one side, while you hike along the cool river and surrounded by forest. Absolutely one of my top 3 hikes in all the National Parks. A great day hike, not too strenuous, but give yourself a full day.

“Small but beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Well worth the hike beyond Inspiration Point. Adds only a little time on to the whole lake circuit but recommended. You can turn round as soon as you feel you have gone far enough so it's up to you!

“Fantastic hike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

Most of the crowd only hikes as far as Inspiration Point, which is just the beginning of this canyon. I highly recommend making a day of it and going further. We've seen moose every time!

“One of the great American hikes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

If you take the boat over across Jenny Lake ($10 r/t) to the trailhead, you'll cut a 4 mile round trip hike, and be able to use that energy to go well beyond Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point where most people stop. The hike up the canyon, after the first mile is nearly flat for 3.5 more miles and offers stunning Teton views, flowing water, waterfalls, animals (moose are commonly seen), and backcountry experiences without the need to stay overnight. Highly recommended! Give 6 hours or so to this hike to do it justice.
