This is an easy trail off the Jenny Lake Loop Drive. We visited more than once-when we were at the park the mountains were obscured by smoke from fires in Montana. It is easy to get a close up view of the Tetons on this...More

Hiked on Aug. 30. The portion parallel to the lake and up to Hidden Falls had quite a few other hikers. Many fewer on the path to Inspiration Point.

We saw Tetons from jenny lake trail. They were very beautiful, only issue was haze. Because of smoke from Montana forest view was not good, in a clear a day we can appreciate it more.

This trail was one of the highlights of our trip. We walked around from the east boat docks to Hidden Falls and lower Inspiration Point and took the boat back.

Jenny Lake Lodge under extensive repair but snack shop is open, with free water refill and the walk around the lake is absolutely beautiful. I believe the circular hike was about 7.5 miles with less than 400 feet vertical.

I do not recall when the ferry stops running. I want to say sometime in October. Once over there there is hiking and sightseeing. In beautiful epic proportion! Bring your camera! Enjoy!
