This is my favorite hike in Grand Teton National Park. Take the boat across Jenny Lake (fee $) then hike the trail up into Cascade Canyon, passing Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point until you are up in the canyon, so close to the majestic Tetons....More

Gorgeous hike up the canyon with the Tetons' spires towering above. We were backpacking up to South Fork and got to watch a moose. It's a gradual climb after the first mile of switchbacks. Start early to avoid crowds!

This is a beautiful place to go if you can walk the steep inclines. It is the elevation that gets to you. The walk is fairly easy and the views are fantastic. I would like to do this again

Would recommend going all the way to Lake Solitude. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time - leave early in the morning. We saw moose up close twice. The variety of scenery is fantastic and keeps it interesting throughout.
