Jenny Lake is beautiful. We walked partially around the lake. They are currently doing some upgrades and construction to the visitors center. The pictures we took turned out great. When you are in the park it is one of the "must see" stops.

The Jenny Lake trail is a great place to get out and explore some of the most beautiful scenery Grand Teton National Park has to offer. While the trail provides an opportunity to get out and explore the wilderness, this is an easily accessible and well marked trail that offers great vistas of Jenny Lake and the adjacent mountains.

We decided to take the trail around Jenny Lake and ride the boat back. I think it was some of the best family time we have ever had. It was beautiful and easy hike. I would definitely suggest you do it. Just check the boat crossing times before you head around the trail if you plan on riding the boat... More

Hiked up to Inspiration Point, so beautiful. We skipped the hike around the lake because my youngest son would have been too tired to hike up to the point. If you are looking for a flat hike, take the trail around the lake. If you want to go to the point, take the boat ride across the lake and start... More

You can do the easy walk to the lake, but if possible, make the effort to walk upwards. You will be rewarded with breathtaking views that will make you want your own little cabin in the woods!

We decided to walk part of the Jenny Lake Trail to get a glimpse of this beautiful spot. This trail did not require a lot of physical endurance. The walk was scenic and offered sweeping views of the foliage.

We stopped at the visitor center to pick up a trail map and asked one of the Rangers a good route for a 1 - 1 1/2 hr hike (slow paced). He suggested that we walk out to Moose Pond overlook and back. Easy walk with the most amazing forest/pine smells!! Views of the lake are gorgeous! We took the... More

The trail is nice to walk. Even though in the rainy day it was a little muddy. But overall experience is nice. When I walk along the path I felt he mountain is so close to me and I'm inside the cloud:p

We hiked the trail around Jenny Lake in early September. You can hike the shoreline all the way around that beautiful lake, which is what we did; it's about 8 miles. For those unfamiliar with Jenny Lake, there is a shuttle boat that provides a short cut, thereby allowing people to get to the popular Inspiration Point without doing a... More

What a beautiful lake. Crystal clear. And over looking the Tetons. It seems to go on forever. Pine tree, smell of clean air. A must see.
