"There are many gorgeous high alpine lakes in and around Jackson Hole. Ski Lake is the easiest of these to hike to. You could spot a moose along the way too. Tucked into an amphitheater at 8,650 feet, Ski Lake does not offer sweeping views, but it is a jewel of a mountain lake. The beginning of the trail is not particularly inspiring though. The first 0.25 mile is an old forest service road. A singletrack trail then breaks off from the road."

This is a nice easy day hike, also a good trail for hiking with the family or younger kids. This is a busy trail with lots of traffic including people with their dogs.
