The Jenny Lake trail is a must do for most anyone depending on ability. I've lost count how many times I've walked this trail and have never been disappointed. The Jenny Lake trail has it all beautiful views of the lake and normally light traffic by other hikers. While hiking it's not uncommon to see wildlife in their environment, just... More

This is a great hiking trail for families. We chose to boat across Jenny Lake to the waterfront trail head. Along with incredible views of Hidden Falls and Jenny Lake, we had the pleasure of encountering a bear very near the falls (at a safe distance) and a gorgeous bull moose chilling in the stream as we hiked into the...

We took boat one way on Jenny lake and walked back , says it is 2 and half miles but seems longer and not much by Lake, and steep in paces for elderly. Fine views of mountains, and wild flowers.

A scenic trail hike good for most people in fair shape. A easy to intermediate trail with a beautiful view of Jenny lake and with the backdrop of the grand Teton mountains. Good shoes required.

The East side can bee a little crowded (nothing like Yellowstone) but you will see other people. The West side is where the magic happens. The views are amazing, foliage raw and gorgeous. If little ones are tired you can take the shuttle back across but I would highly recommend walking the entire way. Also, a quick detour to String... More

We hiked part of the Jenny Lake trail to the far side of Jenny Lake before hiking up to Inspiration Point. Other than a brief (less than 100 yard) section of trail just before Inspiration Point they trail was wide and easy to navigate with hikers going in both directions up and down the trail. There are some very picturesque... More

We hiked around Jenny Lake and up to Inspiration Point for the view. We had planned to take the ferry back, but we did the hike back as it was so pretty. This is a must-see lake in Grand Teton National Park.

Fairly flat walk around the lake. Halfway you can climb to Inspiration Point which gives you a nice view of the lake. Steep climb to the view. Very busy hike although most people going to Inspiration Point are taking the boat

It is a beautiful trail through the woods that is not that challenging, except we are from sea-level and this was day one. So we were glad we did it, but just as glad that we could take the ferry boat back.

I have traveled here several times and it is still one of my favorite places. Serene and relaxing. Beautiful hike. Watch out for bears--I ran into one while jogging down from Inspiration Point.
