Terrific hike with amazing views. Some good elevation changes, deer, but apart from small ground animals, not a lot of wildlife to view. Very crowded with hikers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

Something about this lake it is soooooooo pretty.

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

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!

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