I'm a little late in my response, but I did hike it 2 years ago. It was scenic and easy to fit into a short timeframe (excluding time to get there). We had two cars - parked one at Jackson Hole and the other at String Lake trailhead, where we came out. There are shuttles available however. We started at Jackson Hole and rode the tram up. You can buy tram tickets on line for a few dollars cheaper. We hiked in the fall - very few people encountered and gorgeous colors. Of course that is bear country, so we had our bear canisters and bear spray and took all precautions regarding scented things. Highly recommended! Carol
