Hiked One Way - Boated Back

Great 2 mile hike and then hitched a ride on the Jenny Lake Boat back - was great because we had ages 9-69.

We drove through the Grand Tetons on our way to Yellowstone and I was stunned at the beauty of the park. There were a couple of areas that I knew I wanted to see but was totally unprepared for the gorgeous scenery. Jenny Lake, Mormon Row, the Snake River, the cathedral, all were an unexpected delight.

Jenny Lake is definitely pretty. It is one of the highlights of Grand Teton NP and it is worth the visit. However, the overlook area is overcrowded, especially in summer.

Jenny Lake is such a beautiful location. We hiked partway around the lake to the waterfalls by Inspiration Point before turning back. It's a popular trail for a reason.

This is a large and beautiful lake for picnics or hikes with beautiful mountain scenery surrounding it. It is one of several lakes in Grand Teton National Park.

Jenny Lake was a scenic stop on our Caravan Bus Tour. I was truly stunned and speechless and not prepared for the beauty of it all. I'll have to agree with everything that has been said by the other reviewers, at the risk of sounding repetitive. Take a good camera and give yourself plenty of time to soak in this... More

We checked out what to see near Moran, Wyoming and read about Jenny Lake and we were amazed by this beautiful Lake even though it was a cloudy fresh day. You can walk a trail and have beautiful sights along your walk. We would not have wanted to miss this!

We took the shuttle boat (modest fee) from the Jenny Lake Visitor Center to the trail that leads to Inspiration Point. This is a popular trail (about 1/2 mile) with spectacular views. The last 1/3 of the trail is fairly steep, so take your time. My wife had had a hip replacement six months earlier so she only made it... More
