As a relatively seasoned hiker, this was a beautiful trail to follow. Not too busy, not too difficult, with a LOT of reward. If you continue through hidden falls for another mile or so, you'll reach inspiration point.. Which really IS inspiring! If you only have a few days in the Tetons, I very much recommend the ferry across Jenny lake (30$ round trip) and then the full loop!

Only a small portion of this trail is closed once we got to the ranger station they were very informative as to which trail portions were closed great hike with access to several other trail heads. Beautiful scenery, well maintained trails, plenty of wildlife.

This is one of my favorite hikes I have ever done. Superior lakes views and a beautiful waterfall. Jenny Lake is crystal clear and makes for one amazing experience.

Hidden Falls doesn't disappoint. Once you are across Jenny Lake be sure to view this before heading up to Inspiration Point, especially if in early spring when the snow is melting off the Tetons. The falls are quite impressive. This is a short stroll from the boat dock and do continue on to Inspiration Point and up into Cascade Canyon as far as you have time for. Beautiful country and highly recommended!

This seems to be one of the "must hike" trails while in GTNP. We tent camped at the Jenny Lake campground, which was about 0.2 miles from the trailhead. The trail was well traveled, but the continuation of the trail to Inspiration point was closed for repairs. The elevation change isn't too strenuous, but there are some challenging parts. The view of the falls is spectacular and wildlife was abundant, which was surprising considering the traffic on the trail. You can also access the Hidden Falls / Inspiration Point area via the boat shuttle running across Jenny Lake every few minutes (during season).
