“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

My favorite hike in GTNP and Yellowstone! Everywhere you turn there is beauty and wildlife. We saw a moose, a marmot and a bear, as well as, countless birds. In June the wildflowers are eye-popping! If you plan to hike far into the canyon or finish your hike with walk around Jenny Lake then I suggest you take the boat across the lake first thing in the morning. Save yourself for hiking far into the canyon! The climb up the steep rocky ledge can be daunting, but persevere. You will be greatly rewarded for your labor. Please go on beyond Inspiration Point. It just gets better and better. I agree that you should take all day, so you can go as far as possible into the canyon. You'll be glad you did! My family and I loved this hike so much that we had a painting commissioned so we could be reminded of the beauty of the place every day. (As for when I visited it was June of 2007 but that was not an option.)

“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!
