There is a very nice hour long tour of Jenny Lake by pontoon boat. The narator gave an excellent talk on the Grand Teton's, their formation, the wildlife in the area, the fires and restoration, and the lake itself. It's not as big as Jackson Lake, however when we went, Jackson Lake was very low on water. The tour company also runs a shuttle boat to where one can take a short hike to Inspiration Point. Good value for your money. They give seniors a discount too, so ask.

We took the hike to inspiration point and the the boat ride back. It was beyond beautiful and you avoided the boat crowds being dropped off all at once.

The road to and around Jenny Lake can be a bit confusing and one way in place but once you figure out navigation around it, you will be too busy with jaw-dropping scenery. Not to be missed.

Jenny Lake is one of the most beautiful places in the Grand Tetons. The lake lies at the base of the main Teton peaks,own as the Cathedral. The lake is formed from a glacier and the bottom is entirely made up of rocks. We took the one-hour scenic cruise and had a most enjoyable time riding around the lake with a very knowledgeable tour guide; we learned a lot about the history and geology of the area. And, we had up-close and unparalled views of the Cathedral Group. The photo opportunities were incredible! I recommend you make reservations. When you arrive at the Visitors Center you have to walk down to the lake and boat dock (about 5 minutes). You will see lots of people as they take tween 1200 and 2000 people across the lake each day so they can hike. After the cruise, you can walk across the bridge and take a short hike.

We went over on the shuttle and walked this in the rain. And it was still great. Absolutely beautiful falls. My husbands favorite hike of our trip. We went to Inspiration Point and if it wouldn't have been raining would have walked farther.
