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.

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 started at the south lot and went clock wise. If you go counterclockwise you will actually get better views of the mountain while hiking. We had to keep turning around to view them. Part of the trail was closed for reconstruction but they give you an alternate route which is very similar. Saw a bald eagle, no bears.

There was a bit of snow but nothing you can't do in boots.

We hiked around the lake counter clockwise and hit the waterfall. Great hike with sun and snow coming off the peaks. Well maintained Trail affords not having to look down for steps but enables you to take in the great views

Good last day hike before going home. Likely good first day hike if new to high altitudes. Wasn't nearly as crowded as feared day after Labor Day -- except within 1/4 mile of ferry stops. 1/2 mile stretch right from Ranger Station was relatively boring but otherwise quite nice. Start in the direction of Hidden Falls so this stretch is at the end. The hike may be rated Easy but I've been on easier Moderate hikes!

Get there early. Trail is too busy at the boat docks.
Very busy on a Sunday.

Gorgeous views of the Tetons, cool post-fire regrowth area. Nice hike although it was pretty busy when I was there.

I liked this hike! VERY crowded though, & under construction. this hike kicked my butt even though it's rated as easy. it was very pretty but I was glad when it was over!! take a lot of water bc it's dry as hell and you'll need it. Inspiration point and the falls were nice, would've been better without the major crowding but overall enjoyable. we hurried & this took about 5 hours.

Beautiful hike! We hiked to the hidden falls & back in 2 hours. The trail was busy enough to keep bears away because we didn't see any! The water looked very enticing! Great place to kayak it seemed like. There is NO bathroom or picnic benches though. Also, the directions are misleading. When get to the fork in the road that splits to either "Jenny lake boat launch" or "lupine meadows trail head".... turn right to the boat lunch. Overall great hike for all skill levels!! Very shaded as well.
