Great hike for most fitness levels, my boyfriend and I are not in great shape but appreciate a good rewarding hike. This was just that. We took the boat to the trailhead to hidden falls and continued to inspiration point.

Stayed overnight at one of the campsites. Definitely recommend bringing a snack and beverage because you don't get tired of the view at sunset!

Took lake shuttle over and hike back. Wanted to do a longer hike but ran into a bear 1/4 up to inspiration point. The one day I was not carrying my bear spray. He was only 20 ft away when we came around a big rock. Have no idea if it was a male or female with cubs ... Being that close scared us a bit and we went back down and finished hike around lake.
It was beautiful though just don't forget your spray.
Also saw beautiful elk.

Parking is convenient and trail is easy to follow. We went clockwise and started down near the boat launch. Went to Inspiration point and make sure you check your back trail for photo ops as you walk away from the Tetons on the NW portion of the trail. A little crowded so the earlier you hit he trail the better. Definitely before 9:00. Definitely add Inspiration Point. Head up canyon and loop to String Lake starts where a little stream crosses the trail. Best part of the trail was right after we jumped on this loop. Adds about 1.4 miles to trip.

Beautiful hike around Jenny Lake with stunning views of the mountains. Went up to Inspiration point for an amazing view. Lots of wild life--saw several marmots, a bald eagle, chipmunks. West side of the lake was fairly crowded but after inspiration point it this out.

This was a perfect hike for our family's first day in the Tetons. It's not difficult, parking is easy, and the scenery is great. Watch for the osprey nest on the North side of the lake. The downside is that everyone and their brother hike the rail; that's why it's a good first day hike. We hiked to Hidden Falls, and then took the boat back to the parking area. The children really enjoyed that.
