Gorgeous hike up the canyon with the Tetons' spires towering above. We were backpacking up to South Fork and got to watch a moose. It's a gradual climb after the first mile of switchbacks. Start early to avoid crowds!

This was one of our favorite hikes on our trip. Very steep for a while leading to nice panoramic views. There is a lot of talk about the lake views but we preferred the interior views of the mountains, very dramatic and picturesque. After reaching inspiration point there is still lots more to see. Highly recommend continuing on, the trail... More

This is a beautiful place to go if you can walk the steep inclines. It is the elevation that gets to you. The walk is fairly easy and the views are fantastic. I would like to do this again

Would recommend going all the way to Lake Solitude. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time - leave early in the morning. We saw moose up close twice. The variety of scenery is fantastic and keeps it interesting throughout.

I took the 20 mile hike up Paintbrush and down through Cascade Canyon. I recommend anyone that has the time and stamina that can make this hike should. The Cascade side was not as impressive as the Paintbrush hike up and over the mountain divide. That being said, it is still gorgeous. If you can't make the full hike, it... More

We had one mission once we reached inspiration point, to continue on until we saw the moose that all of the descenders were squawking about. A ranger that morning told us to go as far as we had time for into cascade canyon because of the beauty, and she was right. We made it to the river flats where the... More

As I said about the Canyon itself, it is about 10 miles round trip to, although heavily traveled, hike with others and bring bear spray. Look for moose around the creek!

THE must-do hike! The climb is rather strenuous if you're out of shape (if you're REALLY out of shape don't do it!), but not too bad for most people. After Inspiration Point (1 mile), if you're pooping out (or your kids are, or your time is limited) you should nonetheless continue about another mile (20 min) into the canyon (flat... More

We have two teenagers 13 and 16. We took the ferry early across Jenny Lake (8 am) before the crowds hit. We hiked up to Inspiration Point and continued on through Cascade Canyon for a ways, which was the best part of the hike as we saw three bull moose feeding on the will near the stream running through the...

The hike up to Inspiration Point was ok. The trail to Cascade Canyon is good, but don't go all the way to the "fork". The scenery is best when the canyon first opens up and then good again when you get to where the creek is in the open. After that you are just going thru trees without much additional... More
