Absolutely gorgeous trail! Amazing views of the lake and mountains. Parts of the trail were covered in snow and pretty muddy, but not too bad. We saw plenty of marmots and a moose.

Road was closed. ;(

We hiked this trail in May and still had to cross knee high snow along the mountain. The trail was mildly challenging in a couple of areas but beautiful views the entire way.

Fantastic trail with a lot to see. It is definitely worth it to add on the hidden falls and Inspiration Point too if you feel up to it. this is also a great warm up trail for access to Cascade Canyon.

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.

Very scenic hike. Started early and we were on the trail by ourselves. As we were coming back to the trailhead many ppl heading out

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.

Gorgeous spot for photos.

We completed this with the add on to Hidden Falls, May 7 ‘18. We saw a few groups of people but it was all on the south portion as most people turned back after reaching the Falls due to 3’ deep snow in a ton of areas. The hike would likely be super easy if not for the snow and ice. My husband had a difficult time since he’s 300 lbs of shoulders and therefore kept breaking through the snow path. This added a great deal of challenge. Once we got past the Falls, we finished the north half but not before running into Grizzly 399 with her two juvenile cubs. We slowly diverted down to the beach and spoke in hushed monotone until we heard other hikers coming through and joined them to finish the last 2.5 miles. It was our first time coming way to close to a grizzly. We made the crucial mistake of being to quiet and not chatting while hiking since we were pretty tired. We had bear spray and she never charged or bluffed but it’s definitely something this Texan won’t ever forget.

The views are amazing and despite some scary situations, it was an amazing experience.

In April, the park plows and closes off sections of the park roads for non-motorized use. Many of the side roads to Jenny Lake and other view points, campgrounds and turnouts are also plowed. The weather couldn't have been better this year. And, April 21 was park free fare day, so locals said it was the most crowds they had ever seen. The main park road is relatively flat, but the side roads can have more elevation. Keep in mind that all the buildings including restrooms tend to be closed. We did see one portapotty at the first Jenny Lake pulloff (that was probably there only as they were doing construction there).

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.

Have used this as an access to the cascade canyon trail. It’s a nice warmup. Beautiful and peaceful early in the morning.

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!!

Amazing scenery Tetons are fantastic. Kids loved it

Easy hike with kids and great scenery everywhere. Loved this spot.

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.

Absolutely beautiful hike! The lake was gorgeous and there was wild life a plenty from marmots to elk. We were there in June and had a great afternoon hiking.

Was dark when we finished. Lot of fun. Beautiful trail

The scenery is unbeatable. We saw a mother and baby moose. If you are in Teton you HAVE to do Jenny Lake and Cascade Canyon trails!

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!
