amazing view
Jul 2021
the hike was a workout to the lookout peak due to not being conditioned for attitude. the view from lookout was awesome. there is a hidden waterfall, a moose with her calf. a boat that will take you to and from waterfall at a charge. kayaking, swimming. a must see like all of Yellowstone. there are hidden gems everywhere.

Breathtaking. Beautiful. Inspiring.

We stopped at Jenny Lake (scenic overlook) for a few hours on our Grand Teton NPS excursion — so glad we did. We got off the main north-south road (Teton Park Road) and took a less traveled route into a one-way lane going by the Jenny Lake Lodge — leading to the Scenic Overlook. Great location to walk part of the trail as well as views of the GTNP. By far our highlight of our weeklong trip.

This was truly a beautiful sight. A storm was rolling in and made it even more glorious. I can see where it would be totally peaceful had it not been for the storm!

A Lif-Long Love Affair
Jul 2021
After many years, I returned to a place visited in my youth and held dear for more than 60 years.

The plan to visit Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park visit after dark on a night of a full-moon was prevented by the overwhelming smoke from the western fires, so the visit occurred in mid-morning, prime visiting time for the full hoard of tourists.

Despite the crowd, the view is still spectacular. And I am even more reassured that my love for that magical lake is based in reality, not just the memory of a long-ago teenager.

To share that love, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND a visit to Jenny Lake in the Grand Teton National Park!

Worth the Visit!
Jul 2021
If you're wondering about taking the boat - yes - do it! We weren't sure, but so glad we stood in line for an hour. It was great to be able to hike to inspiration point and other spots from that point. Great!

seriously do yourself a favor and don't even attempt this any time after 6a. It's ridiculously overcrowded.

Clear Water
Jul 2021
This was the best part of the Tetons. We took the loop to the visitor center and stopped and parked along the way. We hiked to the shore and watched the boat tour come across the lake. The visitor center parking was very busy and cars were parked a mile away. The water is very clear for a lake. It was somewhat like Lake Tahoe.

Beautiful place. Highly recommend taking the boat across the lake and taking a short hike to the waterfall or continue past the water fall to inspiration point and another waterfall. Don’t recommend going over on rainy weather. If there is lightening then the boats stop running and you have to hike back 2.5 miles or 5.0 miles

My Favorite Part of Grand Teton Park
Jul 2021
Jenny Lake is likely one of the first stops you will make when entering the park. If you enter from Moose, this is the first spot to stop inside the park. They have a visitor center, bathrooms, hiking trails, etc. Because it's so close to the entrance, parking can be a little tough, so be prepared to park along the road and walk to the lake. The lake offers amazing views, especially of the Tetons. We hiked along the Jenny Lake Trail all the way to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point. If you don't want to hike as far, you can take a ferry boat to the other side and then it's just a short walk to the falls and Inspiration Point. The hike was my favorite part of our visit though, so I would highly recommend it. I will also review the trail and the two stopping points in separate reviews.

Jenny Lake Views

Jenny Lake is full of wonderful views. We made several stops around the lake to see the lake - mountain contrasts. We also enjoyed the beautiful flowers and other scenery.
