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

Did with my two daughters (6, 3) and my wife, we really enjoyed this trail. Great views pretty much most of the way. Some places along the way to stop and eat/ enjoy the views. Falls were beautiful and we continued up to lower inspiration point (the higher one was closed). On the way back we sat by moose ponds for a bit and enjoyed the stillness. Great time!

Beautiful views through the whole hike. We hiked all the way to the top and my polar says it was a total of 6.5 miles from parking lot and back. Took my mom who doesn't hike much and she made it the entire way. Lots of places to stop and take breaks. Definitely a must do!

We took the shuttle to shorten this trail with others at the end of August. We ran into a few people who had hiked the full way to the falls and they said it was very tough and would be taking the shuttle back. Anyway the views here were beautiful. The trail is VERY heavily trafficked. This is not the trail to go on if you want to be away from people. However it is heavily trafficked for a reason. There are amazing views of the mountains and of the falls.

Multiple hikes on Jenny Lake - Hidden Falls, Lower Falls, Inspiration Point, and trail around part of lake. Purchase a round trip or one-way boat crossing to get to the far side of the lake. Begin with Hidden Falls trails, then continue to Lower Falls or Inspiration Point (the trails have common points). Return to the boat dock to cross back across the Lake. Up for more walking, continue the lake trail around the lake, which will end where you first caught the boat to cross the lake.

Hiked this yesterday. It was a gorgeous hike with stunning views! I would definitely do it again. We saw a moose and almost ran into a baby and mama bear, so carry bear spray and hike in a group! 4 stars because the falls were outrageously crowded with people coming in from the boats. The trail was fairly crowded as well on our way back. Come early!
