Description

Slotted in arguably one of the most beautiful canyons in the country, it's easy to see why Lake Solitude is a gem.

From Lake Solitude, there are sweeping views of the Cathedral Group - Teewinot Mountain (12,330'), Mount Owen (12,928'), and Grand Teton (13,775'). Be sure to enjoy a snack along with the views. For those looking to get that "perfect" photograph of the aforementioned mountains, you may need to hike further on North Fork Cascade Canyon to the end of Lake Solitude Trail.

All-Day Hike: Best accessed from Jenny Lake. Follow the Lake Solitude hike to find this Gem.

Great hike. Saw moose on the way out. The first mile is uphill, then flat for 4, then a steady climb. Not for the casual walker.
