Well worth it...easy loop around the lake, minor inclines / descents. As always, bring your bear spray as there was bear activity in / around the lake in early September.

We didn't go too far on the trail, but even on a short walk you can get some beautiful views and photo opportunities. Fall is a great time to go to Grand Teton and Yellowstone.

The entire Jenny Lake area of the Tetons is just stunning. Fall was an especially beautiful time to visit, which added to the spectacular scenery. The crowds were definitely smaller when we visited in late September 2018, but you will still run into parking issues...More

Beautiful cool day and we made the full lake hike. Take water, snacks and wear layers as you’ll get hot and cold around the lake in October. Full 3 hours at a good clip. Start at dock and go all the way around.

WE always love visiting Jenny Lake. This year I learned how Jenny Lake got its name when I was on a tour. It was named after a Native American woman who married a white man named Leigh. They had several children and then small pox...More

Glad to know about reserving a camp spot. I was trying to figure out how high I had climbed as I’m 81 and went up to Hidden Falls
