HikingGreat!

This trail is great for planning an easy afternoon. We had drove to the park the day we hiked this and didn’t want to lose the whole day. This was less grueling but still totally beautiful. Once we passed the water, we didn’t see anyone. Some of my favorite pictures that we took of the park were from this trail.

HikingGreat!

The trail was beautiful. The scenery was amazing. The more you walked the more it changed. We walked in deep forest areas where the colored were spectacular. The hike does lead up to a beautiful view of the lake below. I wouldn’t say this trail was for everyone nor would I say it is that easy if a climb. It is worth it to see Mother Nature at work. I saw a woolly bear caterpillar munching on some leaves. Heard some elk bugling. Pretty spectacular day.

The trail is an easy hike for most of the 4 miles. A little climb and then down. Good mix of lodgepole pine, aspen and brush. Absolutely beautiful views of Tetons and String Lake.

Easy trail if you don’t add in inspiration point. Lots of visitors due to the easy access and relatively flat loop.

Went counterclockwise as recommended by others, great for first part which is leisurely stroll with few people. Once arriving to boat dock, way too many people for climb up to Inspiration Point and worse for the short few steps from the trail to the falls. Inspiration Point has some lovely views but you'll be jockeying with gen pop tourists for a spot to walk and take a breather or a photo. Check Leigh to Holly Lake through Paintbrush Canyon for a better hike (vs. walk) with just as magnificent views and way less people.

Running

An excellent leisurely hike or trail run. Fairly flat the entire way. Bonus: there is a “hidden” side trail on the western side of String Lake, you can see the trail on the AllTrails map leading up to a lake, and the starting location is accurate. This is a short, steep, less-groomed trail of ~800 ft elevation in 0.7 miles but at the end of this is a STUNNING, small alpine lake. We hiked up at sunset - one of my more memorable moments in the Tetons.

HikingGreat!

Easy hike if you don’t mind the distance. It took a little under 3 hours, we started at 4 pm so it was pretty watching the golden hour and sun dropping colors. It was very beautiful. We stayed on the trail and didn’t go on any of the Moose lake or Falls because we started so late.

Awesome trail. Very crowded, but lots of people wearing masks as you pass each other. Get there early to have some moments of solitude and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Also, especially now check the air quality before you embark. When we arrived in Jackson on Tuesday 9/14 the Tetons were completely engulfed in smoke. We were fortunate to have great views the day we hiked Jenny Lake. Enjoy!

Hiking

We went counterclockwise around the lake and started around 8:30 after a few stops on the drive to Jenny Lake. When we got there it was fairly quiet and plenty of parking. We encountered a few other hikers but not many. Once we got to Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point it was way too crowded, in my opinion. Most people either take the boat to the falls or hike the short section to and from. I would recommend to hike that section first and then continue around. The views of the lake were beautiful and the mountains were easily visible even though it has been pretty smokey the whole time we have been here. The trail is mostly flat but does have a few up and down sections. The trail to inspiration point is more steep. There are a few trail options you can take off of this trail, so consider that and we did see a moose by Moose Pond. All and all, I think a relatively easy hike apart from distance. We measured about 8.0 miles from start to finish without any detours. FYI when we got back to the parking lot at around 12:30 there was absolutely no parking.
