  • Address: South Jenny Lake Junction, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, USA
With waterfalls, canyons, wildlife, mountains, and shimmering alpine lakes, the Jenny Lake area is a highlight of visiting Grand Teton National Park. At an elevation of 6,800 feet, Jenny Lake sits at the base of the Tetons and is the park’s second largest lake, and is best accessed by the Jenny Lake Trail that circles the alpine shoreline. It total, the Jenny Lake Trail runs 7.1 miles around the edge of the lake—though many visitors opt to only hike a part of the trail. The most popular variation of the Jenny Lake Trail is to start by riding a shuttle boat, which crosses the lake from the Visitor Center to a dock on the western shore. From here, a moderately steep, half-mile hike leads to thundering Hidden Falls, which continues farther up Cascade Canyon towards aptly-named Inspiration Point. While the trail continues up Cascade Canyon and connects with overnight trails, day hikers will most often turn back around and return via the southwestern shoreline. 

Practical Info

Since the Jenny Lake Trail is the most popular hiking trail in Grand Teton National Park, crowds can be heavy—particularly in summer—so aim for an early start. The area is known for its wildlife activity, which can include both Grizzly and black bears, so be sure to make noise when out on the trail and leave no trace with your food. Riding the shuttle boat cuts off two miles of hiking, so Hidden Falls from the visitor center is a five-mile hike roundtrip—but only a short, one-mile hike if you ride across on the boat. In the peak of summer, shuttle boats run every 10-15 minutes from 7am-7pm, which changes from 10am-4pm during the shoulder months of May and September. Boat tickets are $15 roundtrip, $9 one-way, and can be purchased at the boat dock at South Jenny Lake. Access is limited to May-October when Teton Park Road is open.
