Surprise and Amphitheater Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"This is one of the most popular hikes in the park, so expect to see lots of people on the trail and a large parking lot full of vehicles at the trailhead.From Lupine Meadows, the first 0.5 mile of the Valley Trail goes through mature forest with nice views of Grand Teton off to the right and then climbs up a ridge to the junction with the trail to Garnet Canyon. Turn right (west) here and start a series of switchbacks up to the lakes. At several points you get sweeping views of Bradley and Taggart Lakes to the southeast and Jenny lake to the northeast, as well as the rest of the valley floor."
