This challenging extension of the popular Jenny Lake & Moose Ponds loop (see Trail 39, page 301) is the park’s most popular and crowded canyon trail. In summer, it’s a bottleneck of sorts, at the confluence of several major climbing and backpacking trails. Thanks to the scenic boat shuttle, it’s also one of the most beautiful and direct routes into the wild heart of the Tetons.

One of the most beautiful alpine environments I've been to!

Doesn't get any better than this. Peaks of the Tetons bearing down on you as if they're about to fall on top of you. Had a picnic watching a moose nearby in the river. My 10 year old daughter thought it was a little long. I thought it was one of the best hikes of my life. Definitely a 'must do', crown jewel hike in the Tetons.
