First time hiking in US national park, we are from Hong Kong and in a group of 4. A bit worried at first Becoz it is a bear zone area and we bought a can of bear spray. The park ranger/ guide at Jenny lake was very helpful showing us how to use it and even changed ours (we lost safety lock) with another can for us. It was a very good hike except we had to catch our breath a lot as we live at coastline, altitude is an issue but not a big one - just hike slowly
But the view is worth it. Ranger suggested us doing cascade trail first then we did hidden fall and lower inspiration point. We took the 1st ferry at 10am then started hiking at 10.30am. We didn’t finish the whole trail, we just walked 1/4 and walked back and went to hidden fall and lower inspiration (since we couldn’t pass through hidden fall to cascade trail). I guess total we walked 7km. We just took our time and enjoyed taking the picture and the view
Able to see a few mooses at Cascade Trail, but didn’t bump into any bear. We saw bear footprint (not 100% sure but it looked v much it was) when we hike up the cascade trail - we were the 1st group on that day
Lucky 4-6 of other tourists followed the same route as we got off the boat
We didn’t drink a lot of water as weather is very cool when we hiked, some sunshine but I still find it cold
To me it is not very hard - just hiked slowly and took ur time. It is a bit steep at first but after that there is wide open nice view
