Best of Teton

The lake is so clear and so pretty. Mountain air was so crisp and clear. One of my favorites stops on our Teton trek.

We didn't take the boat ride as it was pretty pricey. However, we took a short 1 mile hike overlooking the lake and it was beautiful.

A very nice hike that on a well travelled trail. I took the hike starting at the S. Jenny Lake boat ramp. You turn off the main road where it says Lupine Meadows trail head, when you go over the bridge turn right toward the ramp. from there I took the trail towards Hidden Falls. I took a short side...

It was an excellent hike to the Falls, but keep in mind that the elevation is around 8,000 feet and the air is thin. So take your time.

Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park is beautiful. It is very popular so there are lots of people on the trails. The Camp Ground (tents only) is isolated from the crowds with great views of the Tetons (it is first come-first served, so it hard to get in).

The 'turn-outs' along this scenic drive are brilliant for taking photos of the stunning scenery. The Church of the Sacred Heart near the north end of the drive is beautiful. There's a short boat ride (small fee) across the southern end of the lake & from the far side dock there's a trail that does about a mile loop to... More

My husband and I took the long trail around the lake. This was right after heavy winds had taken down some trees in the area so we had to climb over quite a few but the scenery was well worth the extra effort..... the lake, waterfalls, wild flowers and wildlife were awesome. Wear hiking shoes and take lots of water!

Beautiful! We hiked both ways and up both short hikes on the other side. Very peaceful. Trails are very family friendly. Bring a picnic and enjoy it as you look down over the lake!

This entire area was very beautiful. Even though it was very crowded when we were there it didn't impede our enjoyment of this beautiful place.

We have a 5 year old and so he was not going to make the 3.5 mile trail. That is only half of the trail if you take the boat across. So we took the boat both ways. We then took the quick hike up to Hidden Falls which was beautiful and at least gave my son the feeling of... More
