Easy to moderate hike around the lake with beautiful scenery. Hike to Hidden Falls is short but exerting. Worth it as the falls are amazing. Boat shuttle back was nice, but had to wait due to crowd. Kayak rental was cheap and enjoyable. Easy lake to be out on for beginners.

Started the lake loop around 10 a.m. The beginning of the trail is flat and scenic, as advertised, very few people. We got to the far end of the lake just as a boat shuttle was unloading. The crowd from the boat joined the mob that was already there and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! There were so many people the trail... More

The trail to inspiration point is amazing. Start early--no later than 9AM to avoid the crowds. We rode the boat across Jenny Lake then did the climb to Inspiration Point. While the hike may be rated at moderate, it is definitely not for those with any knee or ankle problems. Also, it is not for young children as the path... More

Very scenic hike to hidden falls and inspiration point. We took the round trip ride to Jenny lake and hiked upto the canyon.. It gets more beautiful beyond the crowded inspiration point. We actually hiked from summer to winter :)

Nice, fairly easy hike. We took the boat (about $20 pp round trip) over across the lake to the Hidden Falls/ Inspiration Point hiking trail. Beautiful hike. There is some elevation to it and some uneven surfaces. The hike to the waterfall isnt bad, there were people there in flip flops. The hike up to Inspiration Point is a little... More

We took the boat across the lake and hiked up to the top of the canyons then walked back around. The views were exceptional It was a bit crowded and the trail could have been better marked - but there was only one way around so we made it. July is the top visitor month so we could see how... More

Words cannot describe the beauty of this place- it is breathtaking! Seeing the lake with the Teton mountains in the background was truly remarkable. It was my favorite photograph in the whole park. Jenny Lake is a must-stop, go see it for yourself!

Average intensity hike, well worth the hike to Hidden Falls. Took boat back to visitors center. Families with small children can hike this trail with patience.

I liked the hike to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. The ride back on the boat shuttle is helpful after hiking several miles. I will say I did not know that you could pay for a family pass for $45, I think which would have covered our family of 5 both ways. One way was $38, I think. Another time,... More

This is one of our favorite trails in the Grand Teton National Park. Scenic views throughout the whole hike, & such nice highlights like Hidden Falls & Inspirations Falls if you decide to go a little further. We have done both the regular trail & the "horse" trail when they had the other closed for revegetation reasons. The horse trail... More
