Lake Solitude is a gorgeous high mountain lake at the head of the North Fork of Cascade Canyon. The 50-acre lake sits in a glacial depression at an elevation of 9,035 feet. It is ringed by scoured mountain walls in a stunning, backcountry cirque. The trail heads up the North Fork of Cascade Canyon in the heart of the Tetons, then climbs through sub-alpine forests, talus slopes, and meadows filled with wild flowers. Throughout the hike are magnificent views of the Cathedral Group: Teewinot Mountain, Mount Owen, and Grand Teton.
