    This is a fantastic hike for experienced hikers. It's very challenging and strenuous but it's a beautiful place. The wildflowers are incredible and the views from the top of the Tetons are amazing. The trail can be rocky and gravely and steep in some sections and there are some water crossings.Make sure you pack some layers as it can be colder as you ascend.

    This was a fabluous hike! It passes through lots of different areas, the scenery is constantly changing. Pretty meadows, creeks, cliffs, etc. Very strenuous, however. Definitely not for a beginner. It's steep and rough and the creek crossings are brutal. The water is deep and cold and super swift. It took me about 6 hours round trip and the snow was very deep at the top. I lost the trail a couple times because of the snow but footprints led me back to it every time. There were quite a few people and groups but everyone was friendly and there's more than enough trail for everyone. The first half is fun, the second half is challenging. It makes for a great day hike! Pack a lunch and GOOD hiking boots with good ankle support. I also recommend shorts for the creek crossings and a jacket for the top.

    Excellent Trail. Stunning views of the Teton Range. Hike up took 5 hours, return trip about 3 hours. We experienced some snow and temperatures in the high 30’s at the top of the mountain. We came across only three other groups of hikers. Water crossing was not a problem for this time of year. Would definitely recommend this trail to all.

    This was a great trail.. very popular. I did this trail by myself in one day. This is definitely an all day or most- of- the- day- trail. It took me between four and a half to five hours on the way up, and approx two and half hours on the way back down. The views from the top are magnificent. Coming back down was pretty hard on the knees, will definitely use trekking poles next time. There are also some pretty amazing waterfalls along the way. The peak is known to be accessible in the end of july, august, and the beginning of september due to the high water level that must be crossed a few times, and the snow on the peak.

    Great day hike. Gets long, but well worth it. Amazing view of the Tetons in the background. Beautiful scenery along the way as well.

    I didn't go all the way to the top - but my husband did. He said it was AWESOME! The hike up was hot & buggy. But when we got closer to the top it was great scenery. We took the shortcut down - don't - it was straight down the mountain. We ended up in the parking lot for the campground. It was a killer on the knees. Would definietly do this hike again

    Very nice hike in but half way the bridge was washed out.
    :( No wildlife seen save a marmet (I think I spelled it somewhat correctly)or 500 of them. Darby Canyon just down the road is a lot better.

    This is the most popular trail in the Jed Smith Wilderness, on the west side of the Tetons. The round trip to the summit, about 13 miles altogether, can be done in a day, but I'd recommend camping for a few days just below the switchbacks that lead to the summit ridge, where there are plenty of tent sites and a spring. From there you can do a day hike to the summit (another 1.5 miles and 1500 vertical feet), or to many lakes and ridges in the vicinity. The hike up winds through meadows, with waterfalls and the occasional view across the valley to the Sawtooths. From the ridge the views are spectacular in all directions: the Grand Teton and Mt Owens to the east, the Sawtooths to the west, and endless peaks north and south. From the summit plateau (c.11500 ft) you look across Alaska Basin to the Grand - a sight you'll never forget. Though overnight camping is light, be prepared for plenty of company on the main route if the weather's good. In a week-long base camp trip, we saw elk and deer occasionally and signs of a griz. Bring a camera for the marvelous vistas!
