Jenny lake is at the base of the Tetons, a good place to picnic. For a relatively short hike to a great waterfall, you can take the boat ride across the lake and hike about 1/2 mile up and back. While its not a stroll, it's not too hard either. Not a good hike for bad knees though. There seem to be lots of options for longer hikes if you're inclined.

Beautiful, peaceful, gorgeous Lake with the Grand Tetons as a beautiful backdrop. I could have spent 2 or 3 hours there.

We took the boat and the trail to inspiration point. Was an absolute highlight of our trip. Was easily manageable with children. No way to describe what you see at the top.

The lake is just beautiful! And although the trails up Inspiration Peak were tempting, we wisely bypassed it as a downpour started just as we returned to the car. A word of caution: bring your windbreakers! I saw a number of frozen people--the children were especially miserable in their skimpy shorts & T-shirts!

We visited Jenny lake on a cloudy day but even in not so perfect weather the lake and it's beautiful backdrop are amazing. We took the boat across the lake to the trail to the falls behind. While the trail is a bit rugged,it is not difficult and takes you to a waterfall worthy of the trip. Take the time to go to the other side of Jenny Lake.
