We visit the Teton/Yellowstone area almost every year sometime between May and October. Some things you just like to keep doing ... Sometimes we hike the trail to Hidden Falls and sometimes we take the boat. The hike to Hidden Falls is 2.5 miles. The rocky trail follows the lake shore before it meanders through meadows and pine forests. The... More

We spent 2 days hiking in the area. It was magnificent. Great trails, majestic views, Ospreys, wild flowers, streams and brooks. You have to experience it.

Around a perfect lake. The full walk is around 8 miles but it is well worth it, you can duck out half way round and get the boat back but the views from either side are beautiful.

the hike to hidden falls is short and flat compared to about all the other hikes in the Tetons the falls are worth seeing - sure you can take the boat ride across - but the hike is better

The Lake is small compared to some others in the west, but it is a gem. Clear water, fabulous views of the Tetons, feels very intimate compared to other attractions in the west. And it's named for someone's wife; nice touch.

This is a must-see trail for your family. Come prepared - there are no bathrooms for women and it is too crowded to find a tree. :) Otherwise, it was just gorgeous and a fun hike! There is a rapid flowing river down the mountain, and when you get to the top, the view is awesome.

Jenny Lake Trail – Moose Ponds Trail - Hidden Falls – Inspiration Point – Cascade Canyon Trail We hiked from the Jenny Lake Visitor Center to Hidden Falls to Inspiration Point. This is about a 2.5 mile round trip. However, you can go on from Inspiration Point and hike up Cascade Canyon and beyond. We hiked to the Cascade Canyon... More

A perfect hike for anyone with only 1 day in the Grand Tetons. Take the hike from the visitors center, don't bother with the boat ride. It's about a 5 mile round trip hike, fairly flat until you get to Hidden Falls, then do Inspiration Point (and beyond if you can!) Incredible Fall colors this time of year. Just be... More

Hike up to see waterfalls and a good outlook. All around the clear waters of the lake. Recommend taking the high road on the way back to the visitors center for some good outlooks.

My SO and I are just starting to get into hiking, and we didn't have a ton of time, so we opted for the Jenny Lake trail as it was listed as easy-moderate. We hiked around the South/West side to Inspiration Point & Hidden Falls. Those two stops are definitely worth the detour from the main path. We returned on... More
