Walked the trail to the falls. Trail is rough and single-person in spots. Relatively flat until you get closer to the falls, where is then a significant uphill climb. But, the reward is seeing the falls and then also taking the boat, for a minor fee, back to the lodge. Do it!

Enjoyed walking this easy trail around the lake. We arrived at 9:30am and still found a parking spot. Packed a lunch and took our time on the trail. Best to go in the morning with fewer people on the trail. Being able to see the lower falls half way around the lake was a nice surprise since the trail further... More

This hike is nature at its finest. We hiked around Jenny Lake to get to Inspiration Point and then took the boat across Jenny Lake. It was a beautiful hike with many places to take pictures. Get there early as parking can get very difficult later in the afternoon. Perfect place to hike and enjoy nature.

This is a nice and easy hike that takes you through very different looking areas. We got off the trail somehow but were able to find our way back without too much effort. Very pretty!

A very easy trail for novice hikers. Anywhere between 30 minute to day-long hikes are totally doable. The trail is somewhat narrow, so you might need to dodge oncoming hikers. There is not too much traffic, though, once you get away from the major pullouts.

We hired bikes from a place in Moose and cycled to Jenny Lake along Teton Park Road. Can definitely recommend this experience. After the ride, at Jenny Lake, it was really nice to take your boots off and paddle in the water, beneath the mountains amidst wonderful views. The trail around the lake is mostly through trees - and the... More

Near the village of the Jenny Lake Trail, we were fortunate to see a Gray Mountain Owl. The small village was pleasant to see. We continued our walk to the Jenny Lake. There were a lot of swans and geese on the lake. There was also a lot of horse dung which was a nuisance since you had to watch... More

This lake is so clear you can see the rocks on the bottom as you walk around the trail. The Teton Mountains are in the background so it is simply a photographer's dream. There is a parking lot and you need to take the Jenny Lake overlook exit. At the South Jenny Lake area there is a visitor's center, store,... More

This was a great stop! I could gaze at these mountains for the rest of my life! We took the boat ride across to inspiration falls! It was worth it. The parking here was congested but this is still worth the struggle. Make sure you don't park in restricted zones. We saw a dozen vehicles getting tickets. This hike has... More

I was up from sea level and a little nervous about hiking at altitude but this was a flat hike and no problem. the views of the lake and the mountains were spectacular and the trail was well maintained. I recommend this trail.
