  • This is great trail to hike. The whole trail is narrow switchbacks. The view at the top is a beautiful panarama. Hardly any other hikers. No falls or streams. Just nature. A great hike. No flat spots. Peaceful
  • Deze wandeling is praktisch omdat hij vlak naast de camping begint. Hij is voor een hike ook niet uitzonderlijk steil en lang waardoor hij te doen is. Hij voert wel langs een enigzins eenzijdige route. Op de top is het uitzicht redelijk met een aantal pluimen van geisers te zien en in de verte Grand Teton.
