Lots of nice trails to the lake. Went swimming when we arrived and it was amazing. Love the jumping rock!

First time hiking this trail and it did not disappoint. The first leg is a nice pace and we saw a bear not too far off the trail which was really cool to watch. Cooled off in the water up top and along the way which was very refreshing. Certainly recommend this trail

This was a great hike for my wife and infant who i carried. It is a very easy hike with amazing views. No real elevation change and a clear trail. We hiked on Thursday August 9th and was easily able to park in the lot at the trail head at 9am. When we left at 1pm and the lot was insanely busy with many people fighting over our spot as we left. The part of the lake near the parking lot was full of people canoeing and on paddle boards, looked like a regular party cove.
The views are amazing and really peak around the camp sites. We went the full 7miles round trip and felt like we wasted the last few miles.

Hiking is beautiful and moderate. Heard and saw lots of kids wading in the lake Water is pure and clear.

This was my first time to Grand Teton and I wasn't sure which trail to hike. I was originally looking for a moderate to hard trail but ended up on the Jenny Lake Trail...and LOVED it. You get to see some amazing scenery and the trail is fun at all times.

I enjoyed the Leigh Lake hike. It was very easy with little elevation change, but lots of stunning views. There was also lots of wildlife along the trail. I almost walked into a black bear eating huckleberries on the side of the trail.

The trail is fairly popular and heavily hiked during the hours of 10am-6pm. The farther you hike the less people there are.

This trail was great with our kids! Saw a mamma moose and her two babies. We went to Polecat Hot Springs and the Huckleberry. Great with kids over 6. I say this about the age because you do have to cross the fast flowing creek to get to either of them. We also saw otter at the bridge at the asphalt and elk not far from there.

Beautiful hike and quick to get to. Hiked up with my daughter on my back and she loved the scenery. I wish we would of started earlier in the day. Beautiful weather until we reached the lake where it was windy and I should of brought my daughter a sweatshirt. Tons of horseflys!

LOVED this trail. Gorgeous views and easy enough for our four year old to do the whole loop. Great family hike.

Cool place! Went yesterday. Awesome trails! The jumping rock is great.

Absolutely gorgeous. Crowds annoying at the beginning and end but they thinned out near the lake.

I would rate this as easy. The meadows are pretty lush with berries and flowers. Highly recommend going slow and observing flowers and fruits growing around the trail with several bees and butterflies flapping . This was our "recovery" hike after delta lake. In the end we just sat by the lake and swam a bit. A lot better than being at the beach. Loved it.

There was a beautiful meadow of wildflowers and all around there was lush greenery. Got to see 5 bears, a beaver, a white tailed deer, a blue jay, and even heard woodpeckers in the distance! The lake was a gorgeous green color, reflecting all the trees and surrounding mountains.

Beautiful hike. This trail is not strenuous, but there is a rise in elevation that might be hard for some folks. We had a lovely trek, stopping often to take pictures and to catch our breath.

This loop is beautiful! Sections of the trail provide shade but also amazing views of the lake and peaks. I started at the visitor center and went right (when facing the lake). I used this to get a 5 mile trail run in before meeting friends at the Cascade Canyon Trail close to the boat dock. The section of this trail was fairly easy with only small elevation changes. I highly recommend heading up the Cascade Canyon Trail as the views are great and we saw some wildlife.

Amazing property.

We hiked this trail from the Rockefeller Preserve, counter clockwise this morning starting around 7:45 am. Our group of 10 loved the hike and it was well worth it getting there early as we were one of the few groups on the trail. We saw a small to middle sized black bear near the Huckleberry area and it knew we were there and we were thrilled to see it eat berries. Once it passed by us, we moved on and our kids then enjoyed jumping off of the Phelps Lake cliff and all 6 of them jumped in to the water off the cliff. This is a definite must hike for the area and it is definitely more easy than moderate for occasional hikers. Rock Chalk baby!

Fantastic trail to get in some miles without overdoing it. Scenic views all around.

As an even more scenic alternative I would recommend starting at the Jenny Lake visitor’s center and heading north (facing the lake, go right). About 4 miles in on the west side of the lake take the cascade canyon trail. 6 mile out & back with great views and a lot of wildlife (saw black bears and a big bull moose). You can opt to take the boat back across the lake instead of running the rest of the way around if you aren’t looking for a ~20 miler.

The first part of trail is moderate and second part is easy. The views throughout are as good as it gets. Encountered a brown bear on the trail halfway around eating berries and ignored us. Best hike!

Discovered this trail on our mid September trip last year and it is now my favorite trail! Beautiful views along the trail and I could’ve spent hours at the lake. We even saw a moose in the creek on the way back! Park at Rockefeller.

Beautiful hike on the trail today including an up close encounter with a moose! Hiked counter clockwise from the Rockefeller Preserve. Highly recommend this direction. Exceptional views! 8:45am start 12:00pm finish with stops along the way. Abundant wildlife, fortunately No bear sightings, but plenty of droppings along the way.

This is an easy 8 mile loop hike. Please be aware that the trail to Hidden Fall and Inspiration Point are closed due to Rock Fall concerns. They are currently evaluating the potential danger. No timing for reopening.

Trail was peaceful with beautiful views of Grand Teton. A thundershower interrupted us briefly but provided a unique view of the mountains and lake. Although we did not see bears, there was evidence of bear activity a points along the whole trail. The outer trail was left to us with some well deserved private time for hiking honeymooners.

This hike was amazing! It was not hard, and it was fun, with a breathtaking view the entire time!

Beautiful trail, my kids 13, 10, and 8 loved this hike. They enjoyed jumping into String lake for a cool off after the hike. The trail does get busy during peak season, so I do recommend going early for a parking spot.

A great family hike with incredible views! Don’t let the mileage deter you - it’s an easy walk and very rewarding.
