Grand View Point Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is a wonderful short hike, but you have a serious hill to climb to earn the spectacular view from Grand View Point.
From the top of 7,586-foot Grand View Point, you have the view you expect, an outstanding look at Mount Moran and the rest of the mighty Teton Range off to the west, although this is partially obscured by trees. However, to my surprise, you also get a terrific sweeping vista of Two Ocean Lake, the lush meadows surrounding this huge mountain lake, and the Teton Wilderness in the background."

"A short, steep hike with a view to dream for"
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Grand Teton National Park (Falcon Guides).
"Grand View Point sits atop a reddish-colored volcanic rock near the west end of Two Ocean Lake. From the 7,586-foot summit are magnificent 360-degree panoramas that include Two Ocean Lake, Emma Matilda Lake, Jackson Lake, the Teton Wilderness, and an unsurpassed view of Mount Moran and the Teton Range. The trail crosses morainal ridges and passes through a wooded terrain of lodgepole pine, Douglas fir, and subalpine fir. The forested trail is short but strenuous, gaining 600 feet in 1 .1 mile. The magnificent views at the top are well worth the effort."
