Very little elevation gain or challenging areas on this trail, so it really is mostly easy. It is also long, which may be why the rating is moderate. The views are very beautiful and the lakes are peaceful and lovely. If you want a challenge, there are must more rigorous hikes in the Tetons, but this is a very pleasant trail in the middle of a majestic park.

Very nice trail, recommend taking the extra trip to see Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. Get an early start on this trail because it gets very crowded with people "hiking" in flip flops.

This is one of the best trails I have ever hiked. My wife and I hiked the entire loop and after making it past the hidden falls (and the crowds) we entered into what seemed like our own forest. At almost every point on the trail were majestic views of mountains and amazing views of the lake.

Beautiful hike around the lake. It was a little warm in the area burned out. We saw two bears on this trail. The first one was ahead of us - got a photo of his backside. The other bear was just off the trail - eating berries & looking at me! I didn't get a photo of him since my hands were shaking! Not too crowded the day we did this.

My wife & I did this short hike for the second time in '99. The first was on our honeymoon in '91. This is an incredibly beautiful walk. Even though it's one of the most popular, we didn't see many people. a camera is an absolute on this trail. you'll find many scenes where the trees & sky frame in great shots of the teton range if your using a wide angle lens. (suggested)Both times we hiked this loop there were myriads of small wildflowers if you're into macro-photography. Even without a camera, this is one of the best solitude walks you can make to relax your mind. Have fun!!
