A superb trail with everything, amazing vistas, wildlife including a mother grisly and 2 cubs within 30 feet- quite uninterested in us, deer, and lots of ground animals. Great elevation changes, some open areas, and generally very easy footing. Superb lake side trails.

Fantastic view of Phelps lake and the mountains! A mama bear and her two cubs decided to join us on the trail. Bear spray is a MUST. We Parked at the nature preserve then once we got to the lake we hiked clockwise. This put most of the difficult part of the trail at the beginning, so by the end when our kiddos were tired, we were rolling easy. We also encountered a moose that was grazing on the trail. It took us a bit to get him to move, but eventually he decided to move on so we could get by. The trail ended up being 8 miles. There were a lot of wet areas around the back of the lake from all the snow melt but nothing too deep.

We weren’t sure about the conditions, so we asked about it at a visitor’s center and got some awful information. Contrary to her claims, the Jenny Lake trail is relatively clear of snow, and you can hike the majority of this trail without even using snowshoes. We had some, expecting to need to use them, but didn’t even end up putting them on. The views of the snow-capped peaks were incredible and we enjoyed seeing two moose, a great blue heron, two bald eagles and fresh bear tracks.

Did the loop in 2004, amazing backcountry experience

Didn’t get all the way to the gals because the snow pack got steep and slippery. Wish I’d brought my yak tracks! Did see two moose, a marmot, a bald eagle, and squirrels and chipmunks though. Good views of jenny lake too.

5/6/18 Still plenty of snow on the traverse trail East to Northwest route. Postholed some, got feet wet in melting snow. Stayed higher, sidehilling off trail to avoid snow in gully on NW end of trail, keeping an eye on the trail below with this app. Potentially dry by end of May. Really nice trail, well maintained on NW end. Saw a lot of butterflies near the creek on the way out. At least 7 species of wildflowers already blooming on SE end, south facing slopes. This traverse is under 4 miles if you do a bike shuttle or leave a 2nd car at the other end. The 7.3 mile estimate here is an out & back from the same trailhead. If hiking later in summer, start early at the SE side to get the sun exposed climb done while it’s cool, ending the hike down through shady conifers on the NW end.

Went about 3 years ago on a school field trip, and it was amazing! Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, light traffic, plenty of shade in the woods, but it's honestly hotter In the woods. on the open trail it's nice and breezy and easy to keep cool, only hiked halfway, as school policy only allowed so long of physical activity for prevention of injury but all in all a great hike! stopped in the middle for lunch, climbed up the mountain a bit to get some amazing views then turned arou d and hiked back down! definately intend on finishing the hike someday!

I did this hike last summer for our family reunion. I had all my little ones with me and they had a hard time lucky I had people there to help my kids up the trail. the falls are so beautiful. great views. definitely going back when the kids are a little older.

I loved this trail. Awesome day hike. Went all the way up the canyon out & back. Hidden falls is also great. Saw moose and bear. Some of the most beautiful views of any hiking you could hope for!

Only did first 4 miles but loved it!

If you are going to make this much effort go to Table Rock. This is just as hard without the view of the Tetons at the end.

Gorgeous trail. Did it once, loved it so much I came back to do it again a year later. Starts off steep and strenuous, but then is a gentle incline hiking into the canyon after Inspiration Point. Lots of places to stop and rest. We saw a moose!!

Did this as an overnight with a couple of friends in 2014. Slept like a brick in the saddle even though it was windy as hell and our tent almost blew over, and then summited in the morning. My first peak over 10,000 ft! The scramble was really exciting, but not too difficult. There was still snowpack in late September. It was absolutely beautiful in the valleys, with flowing creeks and abundant wildlife.

I did an abbreviation of this hike - totaled about 5 miles. We went out to the jumping-rock, which was great.

Did this in mid-July and the lake was freezing (not surprising since it’s fed by glacial runoff).

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that this hike was done mid-October. Nice, quite trail with a fair amount of snow. We were warned about bear sightings in the area earlier that morning, but we didn't see any. However, after returning to our car and driving down the road a bit, we did come across a momma bear and two cubs!

Catching up on some reviews, so recognize that I was here in mid-October. Visited for a weekend to escape busy college life, and this was our first hike in the park. Very few people, which was a big plus. Falls were beautiful and already party freezing. On our way back, we went the rest of the way around the lake, not realizing how much longer it would take. Still enjoyable and recommend the hike to any visitor.

Beautiful peaceful trail located within the Rockefeller Preserve. I’ve done this trail 3-4x. One note able time was when we turned a corner and a rather large black bear was sitting on the trail eating berries. Definitely recommend...

Breathtaking hike. Saw several moose and 2 bears. Be sure to dedicate an entire day to this hike, took us 8 hours.

Unbelievable. Best trail we were able to hike during our 10 day trip. Absolutely incredible views.

Arrived at Jenny Lake right at 8am to take the ferry, saved several hours of daylight to avoid the loop trail around the lake. I would say almost a necessity to knock out the whole hike in a single day.

Saw about 5 moose along the way.

Must do if you are in the Tetons and are looking to hike.

Hiked to the junction in early July, spectacular views the entire way up. Looking back i wish i continued on to lake solitude, but still one of my all time favorite hikes!

Perfect introduction hike to this beautiful National park. Not super hard gets really hot in the summer but worth every step.

Absolutely wonderful experience. Quite the challenge in certain areas, but to each challenge, the reward is tenfold.

went last saturday.. pretty easy hike and stayed for about an hour. I still smell like sulphur but totally worth it

Did this trail for the total eclipse 8/21/17. Incredible!

We hiked to the fork in late September. The weather was perfect - mid 60s and sunny. A lot of folks head back after seeing Hidden falls. Don’t! At the very least walk about a mile past and into the canyon. The mountains looming over all is an astounding sight! Highlight of Teton!

We did this on our way to Cascade Canyon and I highly recommend going in the spring, when the falls are really going!
