Lake Solitude is a popular hike in Grand Teton National Park that offers incredible views of Grand Teton, Cascade Canyon, and the surrounding peaks. It can be accessed via the Jenny Lake Trailhead or you can take a boat shuttle to the beginning of the Cascade Canyon Trail on the west side of Jenny Lake. Taking the shuttle will shave 2 miles off the hike each way. We opted for an early shuttle ride and found the trail relatively empty, and the hike to be truly remarkable.
The Highline Trail is one of the most popular hiking trails in Glacier National Park. Starting at Logan Pass Visitor Center, the trail immediately impresses (or frightens) hikers with a quarter-mile long six-foot-wide exposed section of rocky trail that looms a hundred feet above the Going to the Sun Road.
