Cascade Canyon Trail, Grand Teton National Park

(4.9/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
The Cascade Canyon Trail is a 13.6mi round-trip long hiking trail in Grand Teton National Park in the U.S. state of Wyoming. The trailhead is at the South Jenny Lake parking area and follows the Jenny Lake Trail around the south shore of Jenny Lake to the Forks of Cascade Canyon. The trail passes near Hidden Falls after almost then goes west into the heart of Cascade Canyon, flanked by Teewinot Mountain and Mount Owen to the south and The Jaw and Rock of Ages to the north. At the Forks of Cascade Canyon, the trail splits with the Lake Solitude Trail heading to Lake Solitude and Paintbrush Divide, while the South Fork Cascade Canyon Trail leads to Hurricane Pass. There are no camping areas along the trail though not far from the Forks, camping zones exist to the north and south. At South Jenny Lake, a boat shuttle operates during the summer which shortens the hike by.

  • 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...  more »
  • This was one of our favorite hikes on our trip. Very steep for a while leading to nice panoramic views. There is a lot of talk about the lake views but we preferred the interior views of the mountains...  more »
  • Accessible from inspiration point. In addition to wonderful scenery, squirrel and Moose can take many animals, such as deer, great photo.
