Nice and easy hike bordering lake

This is a fine hike, mostly on flat or almost flat grounds, for the most part right next to the lake, so with a really nice view on either side

you can do this trail many ways - hike over and take the ferry back, hike all the way around, hike to Hidden Falls and/or Inspiration Point and depending on how tired you are hike back or ferry back. Take lots of water and pictures. it is quite popular, so not a secluded hike or worry about bears.

Trail wasn't too rough. Nice view of the falls and lake from the trail! Nice several hour hike. Would definitely recommend.

The trail is a solid 2.5 hike one-way. While an easy hike, appropriate footwear is necessary. The traffic on the trail (the last little bit up to the falls) intensifies beyond the shuttle boat unloading. The trail itself, not too bad.

We visited in mid June and it was beautiful. The lake had a north end and a south end and most go to the north end. Parking can be a issue, but you can park along the road which can be a bit of a walk for some. The walk to the falls was great and not difficult at all.... More

I have a little trouble rating this because there is a bit of a hike up to the falls. I wouldn't recommend it if you have any sort of walking/climbing issue. It wasn't long but the trail is uphill for the most part and the footing is uneven. The falls at the end are beautiful, but we had just come... More

Went clockwise on the loop round jenny lake. Starting at the boat jetty. The extra walks to waterfalls and viewpoints at the far side were closed which was a little frustrating. However because the ferry hadn't started for the season we decided to walk the long way back and do a complete loop of the lake. Glad we did as... More

We took the ferry over to start our hike. When I called beforehand they suggested we arrive before 9 to avoid lines. We didn't make it before 9 but thankfully no long lines. The boat captain informed us that the usual route to Inspiration Point was closed due to construction but they provided an alternative way to get there -... More

This is a lovely hike with amazing views. Our last trip here we saw a Grizzly on the hike so make sure you are bear aware! Closer to the falls it gets congested because of all the people taking the boat over just to see the waterfall.

Indescribably beautiful. A bit difficult for large tour buses to navigate in/out parking areas. Thought lodge was larger than it appeared in promos. Very quiet and peaceful area.
